1. Organization of conferences, symposium and workshops.
TC216 will participate in the organization of a specialty conference during the period.
We will investigate a possibility of organizing the International Conference/Symposium on Ground Freezing.
We will also look into organization of workshops in connection with well-established conferences such as the ASCE Cold Regions Engineering Conference, ISCORD, and International Conference on Permafrost and other regional conferences.
ICSMGE will be held in Australia in 2021. We plan to organize a Discussion Session or Workshop during this conference.

Members will be encouraged to initiate lectures related to frost topics.
3. Participation of potential members
We try to dig out new potential participants within the field such as young members and practitioners.
4. Generate a list of major publications on frost geotechnics.
