Andean Geodynamics (ISAG)

The +6000 km-long Andean Cordillera represents a unique natural laboratory for studying the geological and geodynamical process associated with the construction and development of a continental mountain range. A decade after the last ISAG in Nice, we have decided to revive this unique symposium on Andean geology and geodynamics but also its related economical and social issues. Because these topics are of major importance for Andean countries, the 8th International Symposium on Andean Geodynamics (ISAG) will be held in Quito, Ecuador on September 24-26th, 2019.

The next ISAG is being organized by the Instituto Geofísico, Escuela Politécnica Nacional (IG-EPN) of Quito (Ecuador) and the French Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD), and will be held on the Hotel Mercure Alameda Quito, the official hotel for the ISAG.

We expect that ~250 earth scientists will attend the conference. Given the number of submitted abstracts and the current level of registrations, we are confident that this symposium will be an exciting forum for scientific exchange between Earth scientists from South America, Europe, and North America.


Conference languages
For both, oral and poster sessions, the preferred language is English, although Spanish or French are also accepted. However, there will be no facilities for simultaneous translation.
