Second Circular

The 6th International Conference of Palaeogeography

 

May 17–20, 2024

Nanjing, China

https://www.isp2022.org/en/conferences/

 

Theme: Life Evolution, Palaeogeography, and Resources

 

Introduction

The International Conference of Palaeogeography (ICP) is a biennial event that aims to foster international academic exchange and interdisciplinary collaboration in palaeogeography and related fields, including for example the prediction and exploration of energy and mineral resources worldwide. Since its inception in 2013, the ICP has been held five times, respectively in Beijing (2013), Beijing (2015), Chengdu (2017), Beijing (2019) and Wuhan (2022) in China. The International Society of Palaeogeography Council has decided that, based on the recommendation of the late honorary chairman of the International Society of Palaeogeography, Prof. Zeng-zhao FENG, the sixth ICP (ICP6) will take place in Nanjing, China in May 2024. ICP6 will be organized by Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NIGPAS), together with some co-organizing institutions. It will be co-sponsored by the International Society of Palaeogeography, the Palaeontological Society of China, China University of Petroleum (Beijing), the Editorial Committee of the Journal of Palaeogeography, and the Lithofacies Palaeogeography Professional Committee of the Chinese Society for Mineralogy, Petrology and Geochemistry.

Sadly, Prof. Zeng-Zhao FENG passed away in January 2023. We would like to commemorate his great contributions to the development of global palaeogeography by holding this ICP6.
