The Organizing Committee is seeking session proposals that promote interactions among researchers, practitioners and stakeholders working to address the challenges of permafrost in a warming world. 
We encourage session proposals inspired by the main theme: Permafrost Thaw, Change, and Adaptation: Integrating Perspectives

The ICOP 2024 scientific program will be motivated by traditional knowledge and the multidisciplinary nature of permafrost science and engineering. The impacts of climate change and economic development have significantly changed the permafrost environments around the world in recent decades resulting in a wealth of research initiatives and unparalleled engineering projects.

Session Conveners
Session conveners will be responsible for soliciting and selecting papers and abstracts, suggesting peer reviewers, and supporting oral and poster presentations. The Organizing Committee values equity, diversity, and inclusion in all aspects of ICOP2024, so session proposals are welcome from two to three co-conveners representing broad perspectives.  One session co-convener MUST be within five years of completing their degree or diploma (early career) or associated with the Permafrost Young Researchers Network (PYRN).  Session co-conveners should also represent different institutions and/or countries. The International Scientific and National Organizing Committees will evaluate the session proposals based on the potential to attract participants and thematic overlap.

Following the International Scientific Committee and National Organizing Committee decision, accepted sessions will be communicated by March 15th, 2023. The decision will be based on quality of session proposed and scientific interest, potential to attract participants, thematic overlap, and availability.
