INQUA Early Career Researcher Conference and Summer School

INQUA ECR Conference and Summer School will take place in University of Reading (UK), from 5th to 9th September 2016.

This 5 day residential event at the University of Reading aims to bring together young researchers from the palaeo­observational and climate­ modelling communities and show how their skills can complement each other.

The conference will provide participants with the ability to use modelling tools and palaeo-observations to understand the dynamics of past climate changes. Participants will also present their own work through oral and poster presentations and will have a chance to network with their peers at social events.

Abstract submission deadline: 5th July 2016.

TERPRO - PATA Days - 7th International Workshop on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, and Archeoseismology

May 31 - June 4, 2016. Crestone (COLORADO), USA

More information on the 7th PATA Days in Crestone, Colorado will be available soon. Meanwhile, please read the flyer.

The 7th PATA Days will be the first Workshop held in the United States. Since 2009 the PATA Workshops have become the premier international exchange of new paleo- and archeoseismic methods and results. The Workshop also invites presentations on supporting studies such as Quaternary geochronology, shallow geophysics, and Seismic Hazard Analyses (PSHA, PFDHA) that rely heavily on paleoseismic input data.

All information about 7th PATA Days Workshop will be posted on the PATA-Crestone website, under construction at

Pre-Registration will be through Website links from the above URL; on-site registration will occur on May 31, 2016 at the Crestone venue.
