Dr. Hik is Professor at the Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta. Dr. David Hik was appointed to the Canadian Polar Commission's Board of Directors in November 2010, and reappointed in November 2013. Dr. Hik has conducted research in Northern Canada since 1984. His focus is on tundra ecosystems, particularly the affects of climate change on interactions between plants and animals. He holds a BSc (Hons) from Queen's University, an MSc from the University of Toronto, and a PhD from the University of British Columbia. Dr. Hik is currently a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Northern Ecology at the University of Alberta.Dr. Hik has worked in a variety of research and leadership capacities. He served as the Executive Director for the Canadian International Polar Year (IPY) Secretariat from 2004-2009. He coordinated the Canadian IPY program and acted as a liaison between Canada and the International Program Office in Cambridge, United Kingdom. Dr. Hik was elected President of the International Arctic Science Committee in 2010. Dr. Hik has also served on many panels and committees, including the editorial board of the journal Arctic, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Northern Research Chairs Program, the Council of the Association of Canadian Universities for Northern Studies, the University of the Arctic Graduate Program, and the Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning in the NWT. He is also a member of the Board of the Arctic Institute of North America and co-chairs the Arctic Council's initiative on Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks.In 1994, Dr. Hik held an NSERC postdoctoral fellowship with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Canberra, Australia. In 2002, Dr. Hik was recognized by Environment Canada for his commitment to advancing the goals of the Ecological Monitoring and Assessment Network in Canada. Dr. Hik recently received the Canadian Royal Geographic Society's Gold Medal Award in Geography for his contributions to the Canadian IPY program.

Prof. Thomas Jung
Since 2010, Dr. Jung is Full Professor (W3) for Physics of the Climate System (Theory and Models). He holds a joint appointment of the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany & Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering at the University of Bremen, Germany. His research interests concerns the analysis, modelling and prediction of the climate system. He is co-chairing the ECRA collaborative program on Arctic Climate stability and change. Dr. Jung is also chairing the steering group of the Polar Prediction Project, A long-term initiative by the World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) together with the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).

Dr. Erica Key
Dr. Key is the Executive Director of the Belmont Forum Secretariat hosted by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche. Prior to joining the Belmont Forum, she was a program director at the US National Science Foundation for the Arctic Observing Network, Arctic Science, Engineering, and Science for Sustainability, and Arctic System Science programs. During this time she was also the national lead for Arctic observing for the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee's implementation plan as well as a US representative to the Sustaining Arctic Observing Networks international board. She has served on many scientific steering committees, including those devoted to data management, field logistics, hazard mitigation, and partnership development. She led the Thematic Programme Office for the Belmont Forum Arctic CRA that included 15 international agency partners and focused on both observations and sustainability science. Erica is an atmospheric physicist and oceanographer with specialization in remote sensing and data assimilation; she earned an MS and PhD in Meteorology and Physical Oceanography from the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS). After completing her postdoctoral fellowship at RSMAS, she then served as a Researcher First-Class in air-sea interaction at the Centre d'Etudes des Environnements Terrestre et Planetaires (now the Laboratoire Atmospheres, Milieux, Observations Spatiales [LATMOS]) near Paris. She returned to the U.S. to conduct studies on marine biophysics at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) before joining NSF in 2009. She has extensive field experience, having worked in all five oceans collecting data for both oceanographic and atmospheric research. She used these observations to further advancements in remote sensing retrievals, modeling, and forecast analyses.

Prof. Hugues Lantuit
Dr. Lantuit is a permafrost geomorphologist at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Potsdam, Germany and professor at the Institute of Earth and Environmental Science at the University Potsdam. He is the lead of the Helmholtz Society Young Investigator Group on coastal permafrost and co-PI of FP7 project PAGE21: Changing Permafrost in the Arctic and its global effects in the 21st Century. His research interests are: Arctic Coastal Processes;RemoteSensing; Photogrammetry; Ground Ice Geomorphology; Arctic Coastal Geochemistry. He is a member of the German National Committee SCAR/IASC and a member of the executive committee of the International Permafrost Association.

Dr. Roland Neuber
Dr. Neuber is senior scientist at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven. He is deputy head of the section Atmospheric Circulation section where are merged experimental and theoretical insights of the role of the polar atmosphere with respect to climate change. Most experimental observations are conducted at the German-French Arctic station AWIPEV in Ny-Ålesund/Spitsbergen. However, the section coordinates pan polar airborne and sonde campaigns as well, which are complemented by measurements in other regions of the world. The experimental studies are used to improve the characterisation of sub-scale processes in numeric models of the atmosphere and of the coupled climate system. More specifically, Dr. Neuber is Scientific Manager of the AWIPEV Base and in charge of Lidar Measurements at AWIPEV Observatory, with a particular interest in atmospheric physics and Arctic. Dr. Neuber served several years in the French IPEV council for polar science and technology program.

Dr. Lucien von Gunten
Dr. von Gunten is the Science Officer of PAGES (Past Global Changes) project of IGBP (International Geosphere-Biosphere Program) in Bern, Switzerland. At PAGES he is responsible for coordination of working groups, especially of the International effort "PAGES 2k" to quantitatively reconstruct regional climate changes. He is also the editor of the scientific Past Global Changes Magazine. His scientific interests are in high-resolution, quantitative reconstructions of climate and pollution; Environmental changes in the late Holocene and their effect on human populations; and the improvement of the methodologies for the develop quantitative climate reconstructions from lake sediment proxies. He graduated at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern with a PhD thesis entitled "Highresolution, quantitative climate reconstruction over the past 1000 years and pollution history derived from lake sediments in Central Chile".
