This IPA Regional Conference on Permafrost aims at covering all relevant aspects of permafrost research, engineering and outreach on a global and regional level in a changing world. The conference main theme is "Permafrost in a changing world". This call aims to promote the interaction amongst researchers as well as stakeholders, socio-economic, political and cultural actors, commonly engaged to address the societal challenges of permafrost in a warming world.

Session proposals can be submitted until 20 April 2022.  Each session can be organized by two or three co-conveners. We encourage international and gender-balanced convener boards, and at least one convener should be a member of the Permafrost Young Researchers Network (PYRN).
