The 11th International Conference on Permafrost (ICOP 2016) will be held in Potsdam, Germany, 20-24 June 2016. The conference aims at covering all relevant aspects of permafrost research, engineering and outreach on a global and regional level. Check out the conference trailer!

We hereby open the call for abstracts. Abstracts should be submitted online until 1 December 2015 via the external conference registration system ConfTool. For this system you have to register (as user) to be able to start with the registration for the conference (as participant), to upload abstracts, register for local excursions and field trips and other events and meetings. Payments can be carried out by bank transfer, credit card (MasterCard and VISA) and via Paypal.

    Five days of top permafrost presentations and posters
    All sessions (oral and poster) in one place
    Many social events and local excursions
    Several field trips in Europe and Yakutia
    A full program of dedicated activities for young researchers
    Opportunities for side meetings and informal discussions
