35 years of ILP
ILP Conference "Celebrating Excellence in Solid Earth Sciences"
21 - 23 September 2015, GFZ-Potsdam, Telegrafenberg, Potsdam, Germany
The International Lithosphere Program (ILP) seeks to elucidate the nature, dynamics, origin and evolution of the lithosphere through international, multidisciplinary geoscience research projects and coordinating committees. The ILP is charged with promoting multidisciplinary research projects of interest to both the geological (International Union of Geological Sciences - IUGS) and geophysical (IUGG) communities.
The ILP Conference "Celebrating Excellence in Solid Earth Sciences" was held in Potsdam, Germany, from 21-23 September 2015 to celebrate the ILP's 35th birthday. Together with more than 50 scientists, members of the ILP Task Forces and Coordinating Committees, the ILP Bureau and ILP's office gathered together to discuss the research findings, science plans, and new projects. Hans Thybo, President of the European Geosciences Unions (EGU), Harsh Gupta, IUGG Immediate Past President, and Roland Oberhänsli, IUGS President, delivered keynote lectures at the conference.
