​​We cordially invite you to participate in the 4th International Symposium of IGCP608, which will be held from August 15 to 20, 2016 in Trofimuk Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk (Russia).

The mechanisms underlying the evolution of the Asia-Pacific  Cretaceous ecosystems are far from being fully understood. The IGCP608 project is aimed to reconstruct the Cretaceous ecosystems and the history of their responses to paleoenvironmental changes  in Asia and the Western Pacific. The Symposium will serve as a platform for participants to share their views on the  aleoenvironmental changes impacts both on terrestrial and marine  ecosystems. The scientific programme will cover a wide range of topics including paleoclimate, paleogeography, paleontology,  stratigraphy, tectonics, and petroleum geology.

The symposium is dedicated to the 105th anniversary of the birth  of Corresponding Member of the USSR Academy of Sciences,  Professor Vladimir N. Saks (1911–1979), Soviet geologist and paleontologist, and the founding father of the  Mesozoic paleontology and stratigraphy Research Group in Novosibirsk Academy Town.

Language of the symposium.

The official language of the symposium is English.

​All up-to-date information will be provided on http://igcp608.sci.ibaraki.ac.jp/
