IN-PERSON CONFERNCE SOLD OUT
Welcome to ICOP 2024
And welcome to the Yukon. Yukon lies north of the 60th parallel, adjacent to British Columbia to the south, Northwest Territories to the east, and Alaska, USA to the west. Yukon, well known for its rich natural environment with endless possibilities for outdoor activities, has a variety of permafrost conditions to explore. Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon, is the largest northern city in Canada with a population of nearly 30,000 and lies on the banks of the historical Yukon River.
It has been 26 years since Canada hosted the 7th ICOP in Yellowknife, NT. In the intervening years, permafrost science has grown, both in terms of the depth of our understanding and the breadth of topics covered. We believe it is time for one of the IPA's founding members to welcome the international scientific and engineering permafrost community to Canada’s North again.
The conference, with its theme of “Integrating Perspectives of Permafrost Thaw, Change, and Adaptation”, will address the most recent developments and stimulate engaging technical and scientific discussions among academics, professionals, contractors, suppliers, and students. The impacts of climate change and economic development have significantly changed the Arctic, in recent decades, resulting in a wealth of research initiatives and challenging engineering projects. The City of Whitehorse, Yukon, is the ideal place to showcase these recent developments and the current challenges firsthand. Its location in Canada’s North offers the perfect environment to learn and exchange ideas.
