IMS2017 Toulouse, 10-12 October 2017

Toulouse will host the 33rd International Meeting of Sedimentology form 10 until 12 October 2017 at the Centre P. Baudis, France. The IAS annual meeting is an excellent opportunity to share research experience and progress in ideas, to discuss all new hot or controversial topics, to initiate collaborative projects, and also to become acquainted with the sedimentary successions and their studies in the host country.

 

13th IAS Special Lecture Tour 2016-2017

The International Association of Sedimentologists is proud to announce that Poppe de Boer, Past President of IAS, has agreed to conduct the IAS Lecture Tour in 2016-2017 with a lecture on “Modern versus ancient controls on sedimentary systems; the present is not always the key to the past”.

 

IAS Grants & sponsorship

In order to promote the study of Sedimentology, one of the goals of the IAS is to help PhD and other students with their Sedimentology studies. Therefore, the IAS offers two types of grants: the Postgraduate Grant Scheme (PGS) and travel grants for IAS-sponsored conferences.

A second goal is to stimulate sedimentology in developing countries with the Institutional IAS Grant Scheme (IIGS).

Finally, the IAS takes sponsorship in several Sedimentology related conferences, workshops, summer schools,... The IAS also offers regional Sedimentological organizations logistic support, a.o. through the use of its on-line facilities (web site hosting, payments,...).

Postgraduate Grant Scheme

Intended to assist postgraduates in their field work, data acquisition and analysis, visits to other institutes to use specialised facilities, or participation in field excursions directly related to the PhD research subject. Up to 10 grants, each of about 1000€ are awarded twice a year.

Institutional IAS Grant Scheme

A special grant scheme meant for capacity building in developing countries, based on the 'Least Developed Countries' list by the UN. Intended to allow Geology Departments acquire Sedimentological equipment for teaching and research. One grant of 10,000€ is awarded twice a year.

Travel Grant Scheme

For selected Sedimentology related meetings sponsored or partially sponsored by the IAS students can request a travel grant.

IAS sponsorship & logistic support

The IAS is always willing to financially and logistically support regional Sedimentological organizations and conferences.
