Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Organizers of the 2021 Regional Conference on Permafrost (RCOP) invite session proposals that address science and/or engineering topics with a focus on permafrost. The conference will convene 11—16 July 2021 in Boulder, Colorado.

For the first time the Regional Conference on Permafrost will be combined with the bi-annual International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering. The conference will bring together international participants 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. Organizers encourage equity, diversity, and inclusion in all conference aspects and seek session proposals from varied teams representing as broad a perspective as possible. Session submissions should include at least three proposers. One proposer MUST be associated with the Permafrost Young Researchers Network or otherwise be within five years of their terminal degree. The other two proposers are encouraged to represent different institutions or countries.

Submission Deadline: Saturday, 14 March 2020
