The 2021 Regional Conference on Permafrost will be a completely virtual meeting from October 24-29, 2021. We will use exciting virtual platforms and this type of venue will allow for international and underserved researchers and engineers to attend and present. A variety of events are planned from Young Researcher events to oral and poster presentations and unique networking opportunities.
Organizers of the 2021 Regional Conference on Permafrost (RCOP) request abstract submissions by August 9, 2021.
For the first time the U.S. Permafrost Association hosted Regional Conference on Permafrost will be combined with the bi-annual International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering. RCOPs are convened by the International Permafrost Association (IPA) as part of their motto to "foster permafrost research to the ends of earth". The Conference will bring together international participants through an all virtual platform.
Session proposals address science and/or engineering topics with a focus on permafrost and cold regions. Organizers encourage equity, diversity, and inclusion in all conference aspects and seek presentations from varied teams representing as broad a perspective as possible.
