Since it was first organized in 2016, the Joint Arctic SAR Workshop and TTX has established itself as the most important forum for exchange and joint training for SAR entities and the Arctic expedition cruise industry. We regrettably had cancel the fifth event that was planned to take place in Hveragerði, Iceland in April 2020. We are aiming at organizing new in-person events as soon at the COVID-19 pandemic allows for it, but in the meantime we will host online events, starting with this first event on December 2 – 3, 2020.
