Carbonate Session at IGC Conference, 6-14th August 2008, Oslo

Dear carbonate colleagues!

We would like to bring to your notice the 33rd IGC meeting which is taking place 6-14th August 2008 in Oslo.

http://www.33igc.org/coco/

One of the key sessions will be on "Carbonate Reservoirs and Plays", and will cover the following topics:
Carbonate reservoir characterization.
Building and implementing sequence stratigraphic frameworks in carbonate settings.
Predicting carbonate reservoir quality and productivity.
Climatic influence on carbonate reservoirs.
Impact of diagenesis on carbonate reservoirs.
Mixed carbonate and siliciclastic reservoirs.
Geometry and distribution of carbonate reservoirs.
Use of analogues for evaluating carbonate plays.
Modelling of carbonate reservoirs.
Seismic mapping and carbonate play evaluation.

This list of themes illustrates that special challenges are related to evaluation and characterization of carbonate reservoirs, compared to siliciclastic reservoirs. As carbonate reservoirs are contributing to a significant proportion of the world's hydrocarbon production, they have been subject to a large amount of studies that aim to increase our understanding of these reservoirs. The "Carbonate Reservoirs and Plays" symposium should be a contribution to widen and deepen this knowledge.

Contributors are invited for oral or poster presentations within the above themes. The deadline for abstracts is 1st February 2008, and details for submitting online abstracts can be found on the IGC website: http://www.33igc.org/coco/

The carbonate session is GEP-19, Carbonate Reservoirs and Plays.

We would be delighted to have your contributions at this session, and very much look forward to informative and lively discussions. It is also worth noting that there are also several exciting field excursions associated with the conference, with trips to Spitsbergen and Oslo Fjord being of particular interest to carbonate scientists.

We look forward to receiving your abstracts!

With kind regards

Tore Amund Svånå and Joanna Garland (convenors)

XII PALYNOLOGICAL CONGRESS BONN, AUGUST 30 - September 5 2008

The12th International Palynological Congress will be held in Bonn from Saturday 30th August to Friday 5th September 2008 in Bonn in close conjunction with the 8th International Organization of Palaeobotany Conference. Both conferences are hosted by the German palaeobotanists and palynologists, unified in the Arbeitskreis für Palaeobotanik und Palynologie. In Germany, palaeobotanists and palynologists have always held joint meetings. This has been very successful and it has shown that a dialogue between palaeobotanists and palynologists is most fruitful. Due to various circumstances, participation in both the international palaeobotanical conferences and palynological congresses in 2000 and 2004 was hardly possible for individual scientists. Nevertheless, the organisers of 12th IPC and 8th IOPC feel that interactions between both disciplines are strongly needed, now maybe even more than ever before. Therefore, it was decided to hold both 2008 congresses in the same place and at the same time.

The medium-sized City of Bonn, founded by the Romans, was chosen as the venue for the meeting. Bonn is located in the Rhine Valley and has a rich cultural heritage with a variety of historical buildings and several excellent art and history museums, ranking among the best of Germany. Bonn is well known for its medieval, baroque, rococo, and Victorian architecture and the city centre is known for its large variety of restaurants, bars and pubs. Until a few years ago, Bonn was the capital of Germany and the city has an excellent infrastructure. Bonn can easily reached by air, by rail and by car. Cologne-Bonn Airport is served by several budget airlines and there excellent and fast connections to the nearby Düsseldorf International Airport (40 minutes by train) and to Frankfurt International Airport (1 hour by high-speed train). Bonn has sufficient hotel accommodation in all price classes, from very reasonably priced pensions to luxury hotels, and a youth hostel; the city is served by an excellent public transport system (subway, streetcar, and busses).

The 12th IPC will be held in the main building of the University of Bonn, an attractive 17th century baroque palace located in the centre of town, near City Hall, at only five minutes walking distance from the main railway station. This historical building has a large Audimax lecture theatre and sufficient larger lecture rooms, and medium-sized to smaller meeting rooms situated around a central courtyard, together forming an ideal setting for the meeting.

Because the conference will be held in university buildings, we will be able to keep the costs reasonably low. One of our aims is to keep conference fees as low as possible; they will not exceed € 200.- for professionals - IOP members will pay a reduced fee. Registration for 12th IPC also enables Iparticipants to attend all 8th IPC symposia.

The opening ceremony will be in the afternoon of Saturday 30th August, followed by two key-note presentations and the icebreaker party. During the mid-conference break on Tuesday, 2nd September several one-day excursions will be offered, including the Neogene browncoal deposits of the Lower Rhine Embayment, Tertiary and Quaternary volcanism and fossil deposits in the Eifel Mountains, the famous Messel quarry, the Carboniferous of the Ruhr District, and the Devonian of the Rhenish Slate Mountains. For those who prefer culture during the mid-conference break, there will be an excursion to Cologne, including visits to the famous cathedral and the Roman-German museum, a unique exhibit on the daily life in the northern part of the Roman Empire. The conference dinner is scheduled for Wednesday evening and is preceded by a boat tour on the Rhine River. This part of the Rhine Valley with its steep vineyards, and many romantic castles and ruins is UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Call for symposia
We now call for proposals for symposia. Each symposium will have two convenors. Symposia will be restricted to time blocks of three hours; depending on the theme, a symposium may include two or more blocks. A symposium starts with a 10 minute introduction by the convenors and concludes with a short summary. Each speaker will have 15 minutes for the oral presentation and five minutes for discussion. In order to avoid too many parallel sessions and to give everybody a fair chance to give an oral presentation, the number of oral presentations will be restricted to two per speaker. Convenors may invite a keynote speaker for their symposium. Keynotes can fill two time slots and counts as a single presentation. Proposals for symposia, preferably in electronic format, should be sent to Thomas Litt (t.Litt@uni-bonn.de) before 31th May 2007. Proposals should include (1) the title of the symposium, (2) the names and addresses of the convenors, (3) a brief summary of the symposium (c. ½ page), and, if possible, (4) a list of potential speakers. Because we want to encourage interactions between palaeobotanists and palynologists, especially proposals for interdisciplinary symposia dealing with both palaeobotanical and palynological aspects of the same theme (e.g., palaeoclimate, palaeoecology, extinction events) are most welcome.

More information on 12th IPC and 8 IOPC will soon be available on the internet.
