At the fourth conference held in Tromso in 1990, subcommittees were established for the first time to conduct technical research and exchange information on technology among administrators of municipal governments and technocrats. The subcommittees formed in the past were for “Winter Urban Environmental Research,” “WinterNet,” “Waste Reduction and Recycling,” “Winter Recreation and Tourism,” “Economic Expansion,” “Snow Management”, “Countermeasures against Natural Disasters”, “Sustainable Winter Cities Planning” and “Measures against Terrorism in Northern Cities.” Final reports were compiled on the findings of their research and studies.


The Arctic Design Subcommittee was established by Rovaniemi, Finland, and has been active since February 2015.
