The first Southern Hemisphere Conference on Permafrost (SouthCOP), a regional conference of the IPA, will be held in Queenstown, New Zealand from 4-14 December 2019.
This conference will operate in a new format, with three-day field excursions offered before and after the conference session days. This will allow participants to make a roundtrip from Christchurch to Queenstown, with visits to glaciers and glacial lakes, the South West New Zealand World Heritage Area and Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park, cultural points of interest, and scenic spots to discuss glacial and periglacial landscape development.
Participants can opt for the whole roundtrip package, or choose the conference session portion and/or field excursions separately.
Call for abstracts is open (ends 7th April 2019)! Please check the link: https://southcop19.com/call-for-abstracts
