No, the presentation must be given in person live during the conference.
No decision has been made on virtual posters. However, we encourage poster presenters to present their posters live during the conference.

Extended Abstract vs. Full Paper
It is important to note that there is no preference between full paper submission or extended abstract submission when it comes to being able to present your work as an oral presentation or poster. However, ICOP wants to offer the publication of full papers to those who want to write a paper. ICOP further wants to guarantee that these are high-quality papers continuing the tradition of past ICOPS; hence we have a full peer review process associated with those papers in place. That's why we need to have them early for sufficient time for the review process. There will be a call for extended abstracts later this year with a deadline of January 31, 2024, for those participants that only want to submit a 2-page abstract and not a full paper.
Yes, however, you can only present one of those submissions as an oral presentation and the other must be presented as a poster unless one of the co-authors is presenting the work.
No, oral or poster presentation can be given by submitting a full paper (deadline August 31, 2023) or an extended abstract (Deadline: TBD).
Yes, there will be poster sessions available.
It is not possible at this time (May 2023) to determine the international diplomatic conditions that will prevail during ICOP2024. The situation is unpredictable, and the NOC cannot anticipate developments over the next 12 months. Permafrost scientists and engineers in Russia and Belarus are advised to inform themselves about restrictions and carefully consider the international situation as they develop their plans regarding ICOP2024. Significant restrictions may remain in force throughout the next year or longer. The ICOP2024 organizing committee will continue to monitor the situation and re-evaluate it later this year and before the deadline for submitting extended abstracts in January 2024. We will post further statements when they are available.
Yes, travel support will be available for ECRs through the International Permafrost Association, IPA. We are currently working on the details, and as soon as more information is available it will posted on the ECR site.
