International Winter School 2023 “Dynamics and Sedimentary Systems in Collisional Zones”, University of Pavia, 2 – 6 October 2023

The major goal of this Winter School is to share and discuss the modern knowledge on fold-and-thrust belts and sedimentary basins developed in collisional systems (e.g., foreland basin). Topics covered by lectures have the purpose to show the interesting complexity about the Earth dynamics from a structural, sedimentological, and numerical modelling point of view. This course aims also at stimulating fruitful discussions on the relationship between collisional systems evolution, surface processes and long-term climate change. Language: English.

The school is dedicated to PhD students and Early Career Researchers in Earth Science. The number of participants is limited to 30. To apply send 1 page CV to Chiara Amadori ( by August 30, 2023. NO REGISTRATION FEE IS REQUIRED.

The Winter School is sponsored by IAS (International Association of Sedimentologists) which will fund travel grants for IAS student members to attend the course. IAS Travel Grants are intended to be a contribution to the expenses of the student (travel, housing, registration).
