15th Western Alaska Interdisciplinary Science Conference and Forum

“Reuniting through shared science, arts and humanities”

April 5–6, 2023 • SWIM April 3–4
Dillingham, Alaska


The 15th annual Western Alaska Interdisciplinary Science Conference (WAISC) will bring together people invested in the ways of life and issues important to rural communities in Western Alaska, including economic, ecological, social, and health. We do this through sharing of observations and scientific research, including from Indigenous and local knowledge.

The Southwest Interagency Meeting (SWIM) will be held Wednesday, April 3–4, in conjunction with WAISC.

Save the date!

Welcome everyone! The Western Alaska Interdisciplinary Science Conference (WAISC) is pleased to invite you to save the date for the upcoming event, which will be held April 5–6 in Dillingham at the Bristol Bay Campus. As is recent tradition, the Southwest Interagency Meeting (SWIM) will be held on the days prior, April 3–4. Please make travel plans accordingly and book in advance—there is typically only one flight per day to and from Dillingham on those dates.

WAISC 2023 will take place in person. In addition, we are providing videoconference access for attendees that are unable to travel to Dillingham. This arrangement will create an environment that focuses on participant engagement and collaboration, while allowing those who are unable to travel to access to the presentations and participate. It has been wonderful to meet so many colleagues and students face-to-face over this last semester, and we plan to continue the interaction this spring in Bristol Bay.
