The 12th International Conference on Permafrost – ICOP 2020 – will be held in Lanzhou, China from 22-26 June 2020. Lanzhou is in the geographical center of China and is a major hub of permafrost research and engineering. The conference will be held at Lanzhou University, which is adjacent to the Cold and Arid Regions Environmental & Engineering Research Institute, CAS (CAREERI). We encourage all members of our community to attend this premiere permafrost event. Abstract submission closes 31 January 2020; this is also the deadline for applying for early career support (in the form of waived conference registration). There is also the option of participating in a field trip after the conference; there are six different options to fit a variety of interests.

Visit the conference website for all necessary information, including the list of sessions, abstract submission instructions, early career support, and relevant travel information:

We hope to see many of you in Lanzhou!
