The 2nd Asian Conference on Permafrost (ACOP2017) will take place in Sapporo, Japan from July 2–6, 2017.
Make sure you DO NOT miss this conference, which will be held on Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan.
Delegates will participate in state-of-the-art oral and poster presentations in the modern city of Sapporo (host of the 1972 Winter Olympics). Field trips will visit marginal and extrazonal mountain permafrost sites that support unique geo-eco-hydrological features.
All aspects of frozen ground research will be covered, from needle ice to deep permafrost, from frozen ground engineering in cities to permafrost on volcanoes, and from links between frozen ground and ancient cultures to present-day outreach.
Plan now to enjoy science and engineering, excellent food, and unique field trips in Sapporo in summer 2017!
