In the last years, the scientific comunity of Portugal and Spain interested in the study of cold processes in polar and high mountain environments have met every two years. In 2019, the Pyrenean Institute of Ecology (CSIC) with the help of colleagues from both countries will organize the Iberian Conference of the International Permafrost Association. It will be held in Jaca (Aragonese Pyrenees) on 25, 26 and 27th of June, 2019. During the meeting, the Iberian community linked to the study of the permafrost, climate, hydrology and geomorphology of cold regions will present their new research. As usual, we expect to discuss and promote collaboration and exchange of expertize in a friendly atmosphere.
