The conference aims at covering all relevant aspects of permafrost research, engineering and outreach on a global and regional level. Three exciting days of plenary lectures, oral presentations and posters will be completed by two breathtakingdays of local field trips in the Mont Blanc massif. Three scenic two-day-long field trips in the Aosta Valley (Italy), Valais (Switzerland) and Ecrins massif (France) will close the conference.
Inspired from the research developments exposed during the last conferences on permafrost, the following general themes denote the diversity of research to be presented at the conference:
These themes are by no means restrictive and we especially wish to favour a transdisciplinary, holistic and systemic vision of the
questions that the permafrost community faces. This latter includes researchers as well as stakeholders, socio-economic, political and cultural actors, commonly engaged to address the societal challenges of permafrost in a warming world.
The Call for Abstracts will be open from 20 August to 15 December 2017.
