The ACUNS’ Student Conference on Northern Studies is a triennial event mostly organized by the committee of graduate students. The conference provides a unique opportunity for young researchers to meet and exchange ideas with others who share similar academic interests. Through the organizing experience students also have an opportunity to develop professional experience, forge links with government and community stakeholders, and make national and international connections.
Under the theme « Nikan: The Future of The North », the 10th National Student Conference on Northern Studies will take place at the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT), First Peoples Pavilion on Val-d’Or Campus, November 1 - 3, 2012. UQAT is a truly northern university, as shown by its numerous research and teaching activities rooted in the territories of Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Nord-du-Québec and Nunavik. UQAT’s professors and students enjoy international recognition for their work on forest ecosystems, the mining industry, community development, aboriginal studies, multimedia creation, international health, teaching and organizational management.
