About YORSGET

Young researchers in Structural geology and Tectonics

YORSGET 2020

Sicily 18-23 June 2020

YORSGET is a TecTask (IUGS) conference aimed primarily at MSc/PhD students, post-docs, and early career researchers in the broad field of structural geology and tectonics. The conference provides a platform for networking and research presentations in a supportive and inspiring atmosphere. The conference consists of keynotes, regular talks, poster presentations, and field trips.

Yorsget 2020 is the third conference in the series. Sicily has been chosen for the conference as it offers great opportunities for examining the interactions between tectonics, landscape and stratigraphy. As with previous meetings, the conventional presentation days in the meeting are complemented with field excursions to promote discussion. Visit the field trips page for more information.

The first Yorsget was organised at the University of Oviedo, Spain, in 2008. The second conference was held in Montgenevre, French Alps in 2018 https://conferences.leeds.ac.uk/yorsget/. TecTask, the main sponsor of this conference, invites applications for organizing the next Yorsget conference in 2022. Please get in touch with the organizers if you would like to consider hosting the next Yorsget. Visit us at: https://www.facebook.com/yorsget
