Abstract deadline today 12 March AOGS/AGU Joint meeting in Singapore 13-17 August 2012
This meeting has 48 sessions concerning the Solid Earth, including a number of exciting sessions of direct interest to this list, including Tethys, Pangea, Western Pacific tectonics, subduction processes, hot spots and large igneous provinces, active tectonics and earthquake geology and geophysics.
The AOGS/AGU meeting follows on the week after the IGC meeting in Brisbaine, which has a number of related session on tectonics and geodynamics

Tectonics of South East Asia from the mantle to the surface
Some of the largest mantle convection cells of our planet are located beneath South East Asia, providing the driving force for the complex tectonic history of the area. The tectonic history in turn has left a dramatic and unique impact upon the Asian mantle, most directly in the form of products of past subduction, which have been imaged exceptionally well by a number of recent seismic tomographic studies. A unified approach to Asian tectonics, combining seismic imaging, geodynamic modeling and tectonic interpretation is now at hand, and offers to shed fundamentally new insight into our understanding of the geologic history of the region, including the evolution of plate boundaries, sea level and the stratigraphic record. We solicit contributions from a wide range of earth sciences, addressing for example, regional tectonic evolution, the sedimentary record, seismic and geodynamic studies of the area.
