Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The Regional Conference on Permafrost and Engineering (RCOP) takes place in Boulder, Colorado on July 11-16, 2021. The organizers of RCOP 2021 in Boulder, Colorado, are welcoming session proposals by February 22.

For the first time the Regional Conference on Permafrost will be combined with the bi-annual International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering. RCOP 2021 is expected to bring international participation and we anticipate as many as 500 attendees who will have the opportunity to organize side-project meetings and enjoy field trips to the nearby Rocky Mountains.

Session proposals that address science and/or engineering topics with a focus on permafrost are welcomed. We encourage equity, diversity, and inclusion in all Conference aspects and seek session proposals from varied teams representing as broad a perspective as possible. At least one early career session proposer is expected for each team.
