The second joint PAGES-INQUA early-career researcher in-person workshop "Past Socio-Environmental Systems (PASES)", which was planned for November 2021 in La Serena y Coquimbo, Chile, will now be held from 20-24 November 2022.

Registration opens 2 June and closes 15 July.

*Update from the organizers*

After two consecutive year postponements due to the COVID19 pandemic, we have decided to organize the in-person workshop in Chile, La Serena, between 20 and 24 November 2022.

Until the workshop takes place, we propose to hold bimonthly get-togethers to engage the ECR community researching past-socio-environmental systems, with lessons learned from vPASES2020. 

Get-togethers will start January-February 2022. More information will be posted online here: http://www.pases2020.comhttp://www.pases2020.com

Please contact the organizers with questions at: workshop.pages.ecn@gmail.com or on Twitter (@pases2020), or find out more on the official PASES website.

Logistics

The workshop is being organized by PAGES Early-Career Network.

A virtual meeting took place in November 2020 in preparation for the in-person workshop.

Venue

La Serena Archeological Museum

Description

The workshop aims to facilitate scientific exchange between early-career researchers (ECRs) from a broad range of disciplines, that work within the overarching theme of climate-environment-cultural change, which is at the core of both PAGES’ and INQUA’s missions. We welcome innovative ideas and approaches that tackle multiple hypotheses of changes where human, environment and climate interact at different temporal scales and across different geographies.

Invited speakers

The following "advanced" early-career scientists will give talks:

Eugenia Gayó - Paleoclimate and Paleoecology of the Atacama Desert
Simon Connor - Paleoecology in Caucasus, Mediterranean, and Australian regions

Financial support

A limited number of grants will be available to support ECRs in registration and/or travel, especially those coming from developing countries. 

Registration

A base registration fee of $US150 includes the workshop, coffee breaks, lunches and ice-breaker. Participants can choose to add up accommodation ($50, including double-shared room in a hostel with breakfast), excursion/dinner ($50) or both. Maximum registration fee $250.

Registration opens 2 June and closes 15 July.

Travel

Travel to La Serena, Chile: Santiago International Airport (SCL) receives international flights from Oceania, Europe and the Americas. There are several daily flights between Santiago and La Serena at reasonable fares. Excellent ground transportation between La Serena airport and city center.

Public event

A public event revolving around the topic "Paleosciences and colonial legacies" will be held. This forum seeks, through discussions between Indigenous communities, local activists, interdisciplinary researchers, and communicators, to address what's behind the overarching message that drives current paleoscience research: "The past as the key to the present, and to the future". A series of discussions will try to answer: "Whose past?", "Whose present?", and "Whose future?".
