The International Sedimentological Congress (ISC) is organized every four years. The conference aims to gather participants from all over the world to discuss and share the most recent advances in the broad field of sedimentology. It offers oral and poster presentations in themed sessions, field trips and short courses.
The 20th International Sedimentological Congress will be held in Quebec City, Canada, from 13-17 August 2018.
The IAS Meeting of Sedimentology (IMS) is organized each year except for the year an ISC takes place. This regional meeting gathers participants to discuss and share the most recent advances in the field of sedimentology. It offers oral and poster presentations in themed sessions, field trips and short courses.
The IAS International Summer School of Sedimentology (ISS) provides post-graduate students an opportunity to interact with invited lecturers who focus on new and exciting topics in sedimentology presented as a series of lectures combined with field observations. The biannual IAS Summer School is always held in an area of widely recognized sedimentological significance.
To promote the study of sedimentology, the IAS sponsors selected meetings financially, usually in the form of travel grants. The main goal is to support PhD and other students with their sedimentology studies. The IAS also supports conferences non-financially by giving them additional exposure on the IAS website and in its newsletters.
IAS Special Lecture Tours (SLT) allow sedimentology groups to invite a well-known expert to give lectures and short courses in their country. The lectures are usually accompanied by round-table discussions and local field trips.
IAS is proud to announce that long-time IAS-member and Past President Poppe de Boer 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“.
