PAGES-INQUA Workshop for Early-Career Researchers


Past Socio-Environmental Systems

November 2021, La Serena, Chile

We have decided to postpone the workshop a year (PASES2020, November 2021) and to organize a virtual meeting in November 2020 (vPASES2020), with online discussions running until the in-person workshop takes place. We believe this innovative formula will help all participants to get connected and overcome the lack of training and network opportunities due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated global health concerns and travel restrictions.

A workshop by ECRs and for ECRs

The workshop aims to facilitate scientific exchange between early-career researchers (ECRs) from a broad range of disciplines within the overarching themes of climate-environment-cultural changes, which are at the core of both PAGES' and INQUA'S missions. We welcome innovative ideas and approaches that tackle multiple hypotheses of change in past socio-environmental systems with implications for present and future sustainability issues.

The workshop will include four days of oral and poster presentations by ECRs and break-out groups in which participants will work on community-driven questions around the application of paleosciences to study socio-environmental systems. We especially welcome participants researching the social side of paleosciences with interests on how paleoclimatic and paleoecological data and models inform human responses to environmental change.
