IASC Medals are awarded in recognition of exceptional and sustained contributions to the understanding of the Arctic. A maximum of one award is made each year, assuming that there is a nominee of appropriate quality. The award of medals will normally be by the President of IASC during the Arctic Science Summit Week (or exceptionally at another major international meeting) following the ratification of the award.

Nominations for the IASC Medal 2013, which will be awarded at the Arctic Science Summit Week 2013 in Krakow, Poland (13-19 April 2013), can be submitted to the IASC Secretariat until 31 December 2012. A medal nomination form is available on the IASC website at:
