About Yorsget

Yorsget is a conference aimed primarily at MSc/PhD students, post-docs, and early career researchers in the broad field of structural geology and tectonics. The conference provides a platform for networking and research presentations in a supportive and inspiring atmosphere. The conference consists of keynotes, regular talks, poster presentations, and field trips.

The location of Yorsget 2018 in Montgenevre, France, has been selected due to its proximity to some world-famous examples of structural geology and tectonics, from outcrop to regional scale. The field trips, included in the conference price, will take you to some of these fantastic areas. Visit the field trips page for more information.

The first Yorsget was organised at the University of Oviedo, Spain, in 2008. The conference in 2018, therefore, marks the 10-year anniversary of the first conference. TecTask, the main sponsor of this conference, invites applications for organizing the next Yorsget conference in 2020. Please get in touch with the organizers if you would like to consider hosting the next Yorsget.
