It is with pleasure that the Organizing Committee announces the 1st International Congress on Stratigraphy (STRATI 2013), to be held in Lisbon, 1–7 July 2013.
This congress follows the decision to internationalize the conferences previously organized by the French Committee of Stratigraphy (STRATI), the last one of which was held in Paris in 2010. Thus, the congress possesses both the momentum gained from an established conference event and the excitement of being the first International Congress on Stratigraphy. It is being held under the auspices of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (IUGS), and it is envisaged that this first congress will lead to others being held in the future.
Stratigraphy is a geoscience specialism that involves numerous researchers and practitioners worldwide and has many applications, with growing importance in scientific, technological, economic, and environmental fields. The Organizing Committee welcomes all interested parties to this event and intends to hold a congress of high scientific quality in a friendly and professional environment.
