For the first time, the US Permafrost Association (USPA) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) have joined forces to organize the joint 2021 Regional Conference on Permafrost (RCOP) and 19th International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering (ICCRE). RCOPs are convened by the International Permafrost Association (IPA) as part of their motto to "foster permafrost research to the ends of earth". The RCOP & ICCRE joint conference in October 2021 will strengthen ties between the scientific, engineering, and local communities.
