International conference in memory of Prof. Bor-ming Jahn(from 6 to 11 November 2017,Taipei)

The international conference in memory of Prof. Bor-ming Jahn titled "Asian Orogeny and Continental Evolution: New Advances from Geologic, Geophysical and Geochemical Perspectives" will be held from 6 to 11 November 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan. You are warmly invited to attend to discuss and exchange scientific ideas, collaborative researches and the most recent progress regarding the Tethyan Orogen, Central Asian Orogen and tectonic evolution of SE Asia and the SW Pacific, and to memorize and pay tribute to respectful and beloved Prof. Bor-Ming Jahn, who suddenly left us late last year in 2016. The conference will consist of a 2‐day symposium held in Taipei and a subsequent 4‐day fieldtrip, offering a traverse of the mountain belt and the suture zone between Eurasia and Philippine Sea plates.
