Stratigrafia del Paleozoico di Gondwana (Congresso in lingua inglese)
The International Congress on “Palaeozoic stratigraphy of Gondwana” (ICPSG) will be held in Perugia (Italy) on April 14-16, 2016. The Congress is organized jointly by the Department of Physics and Geology (University of Perugia, Italy) and Arianzamin Pars Geological Center of Teheran, Iran (APGC). It will be addressed to promote interdisciplinary approaches, to make the state-of-the-art and to expand the knowledge on the Palaeozoic Gondwana realm. The Congress aims to provide an opportunity for constructive interactions between academia and industry in exchanging ideas, perspectives and challenges.
The congress will cover a wide range of topics about Gondwana Palaeozoic successions. The main subjects of the congress will be: Stratigraphy, Palaeontology and Biozonation, Basin Analysis, Geochemistry, Hydrocarbon maturity, Geodynamic, Palaeogeography.
The congress will be held at Hotel Giò – Perugia Congress Centre inside the Hotel Giò, with 206 rooms, 26 meeting rooms and Auditorium seating for up to 700 places.
English will be the official language of the meeting. No translation facilities will be available.
