The 2011 Gordon Conference on the Interior of the Earth will push the leading edge of research on Earth's lithosphere and its connection to interior dynamics and climate. The conference will address a wide range of topics from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Invited speakers from the fields including geochemistry, geodynamics, petrology, seismology, sedimentology, geodesy will define the forefront of knowledge and set the stage for a freewheeling discussion and debate of the most pressing scientific questions. Specific session topics include the origin and evolution of continents, subduction dynamics and plate driving forces, great earthquakes, tectonics and climate and real-time sea-level changes. The conference will also provide the opportunity for junior scientists and graduate students to present their work in poster format and exchange ideas with leading researchers. The collegial atmosphere, with programmed discussion sessions and opportunities for informal gatherings, is intended to generate lively exchange and promote cross-disciplinary collaborations.
