Strati 2023 Lille

STRATI 2023 - Lille


Following the 1st congress in Lisbon (Portugal) in 2013, and additional congresses organized in Graz (Austria) in 2015 and Milan (Italy) in 2019, the 4th International Congress on Stratigraphy has been delegated by the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) to Lille (France).

STRATI 2023, at Lille, France, 11th-13th July 2023. logostrati2023

With famous pioneers, such as Cuvier and Lamarck, France is considered the birthplace of palaeontology (the word ‘paléontologie’ was created by de Blainville in 1822), and French scientists were also the first to develop stratigraphical concepts. For instance, d’Orbigny introduced stages as subdivisions of strata with unique fossil assemblages. Many international geological series and stage names have been defined in France, such as the Jurassic System, named after the French-Swiss Jura Mountains, or the Givetian Stage (Devonian), named after Givet, a city in northern France. Many Mesozoic and Cenozoic standard stages derive from French localities: Hettangian, Sinemurian, Toarcian, Bajocian (Jurassic); Berriasian, Valanginian, Hauterivian, Barremian, Aptian, Albian, Cenomanian, Turonian, Coniacian, Santonian, and Campanian (Cretaceous); Lutetian (Paleogene), Aquitanian and Burdigalian (Neogene). Lille, in the northernmost part of France, close to the Belgian border, has a long tradition of stratigraphical studies on the Upper Palaeozoic, being close to the famous Devonian-Carboniferous type localities, but also to the Ypresian and Rupelian (Palaeogene) type-sections in Belgium.

We are pleased to announce that together with the three days indoor sessions, four excursions and two one-day field trips will be organized, covering stratigraphical successions from the Palaeozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic. The congress will also host meetings of the ICS and its subcommissions, together with workshops and social activities.
