The 7th PAGES OSM will take place in Shanghai, China, and online, from 21–24 May 2025.

The PAGES Open Science Meeting (OSM) is a PAGES flagship event held approximately every four years and is a much anticipated fixture on the paleoscience calendar.

Directly before the OSM, PAGES will conduct the 5th PAGES Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) from 19-20 May 2025.


The 7th OSM and 5th YSM meetings will focus on “the Earth System Changes from the Past towards the Future”. This conference aims to promote interdisciplinary scientific exchange and international collaboration, and to strengthen the connections between PAGES communities. 

By integrating various spheres of the Earth's system, this conference will illustrate the changes in the key components of the Earth's surface system (air, water, ice, land, life, society, etc.) across timescales, with the ultimate goal of improving predictions for future climate and environment.
