4–14 December 2019, Queenstown, New Zealand
The 1st Southern Hemisphere Conference on Permafrost (SouthCOP)

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.

The conference includes an excellent educational programme with over 100 international speakers. There will be sessions on permafrost engineering, as well as the latest scientific work related to permafrost and cryosols in Arctic, Antarctic and Mountain environments. There are three-day field excursions offered before and after the conference, allowing participants to make a round trip 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.
The conference will also include networking drinks, a choice of field trips around Queenstown and a gala dinner at the top of ‘Bob’s Peak’ with breath-taking panoramic views of Queenstown and the surrounding mountains.

We look forward to welcoming you to New Zealand in December.
