IESCA-2012

It is a great honour for us to welcome you to the “International Earth Sciences Colloquium on the Aegean Region, IESCA-2012” which will be held at Dokuz Eylül University in İzmir, Turkey, 1–5 October 2012. The Aegean region plays an important role in our understanding of geological problems of the eastern Mediterranean region and preserves important records of geological processes which have operated in a zone of convergence. Many examples of metamorphic, magmatic and sedimentary processes and related economic mineral deposits and energy resources of the region have already been extensively studied by earth scientists from around the world. This geological wealth is a consequence of a regional tectonic setting in which several continental blocks were amalgamated via Tethyan subduction events, giving rise to the present configuration of the region. The colloquium will be organized broadly along the lines of several regional geological topics, including tectonics, metamorphism, magmatism, sedimentation, GIS and remote sensing, geophysical research, mining and mineral deposits, energy resources and engineering geology. We believe that new advances in our knowledge of the geology of the Aegean region will be discussed extensively and that the colloquium will encourage the collaboration of scientists from different countries in the international scientific endeavour.
