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. The 1st International Congress on Stratigraphy follows the conferences organized by the French Committee of Stratigraphy (STRATI).
After several successes, a clear trend towards internationalization of STRATI that culminated in 2010 in Paris, led the organizers to propose that the next Congress was held in Portugal, within the Department of Earth Sciences and Centre for Research in Science and Engineering Geology of Faculty of Science and Technology, New University of Lisbon.
The Organizing Committee made the request to the International Commission on Stratigraphy (IUGS) to start a cycle of International Congresses of Stratigraphy, which has kindly accepted and will hopefully became entrenched for the future.
The Stratigraphy is a geoscience speciality that integrates numerous researchers worldwide and has many applications, with growing importance both in scientific and technological or economic fields.
The Organizing Committee welcomes all interested parties to this event and asks all of you to support it by presenting your respective research results in the debate that will certainly take place and in the applications that may be developed in various areas of industry and society.
