The International Polar Year (IPY) 2007 - 2008 "will be an intense, internationally coordinated campaign of research that will initiate a new era in polar science" by educating and involving the public and assisting in the training of engineers, scientists, and leaders. While IPY is still in its planning stage, this website offers an introduction to IPY, the latest news, and information on its activities. At the International Page, users can find materials about the planning group, membership, supporting organizations, the group's goals, documentation, and timeline. The site offers information on the National Committees involved with IPY and the points of contact.
