In November 2011, an International Symposium on Deep Exploration into the Lithsosphere (ISDEL) was held in Beijing. Nearly 300 geophysicists and geologists from the United States of America, Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, Ireland, and China attended this meeting. Some of these were principal and co-principal investigators of international deep exploration projects such as COCORP and EarthScope of the United States, LithoProbe of Canada, AGCRC of Australia, DECORP of Germany, and CROP of Italy.
For the International Symposium on Deep Earth Exploration and Practices (DEEP-2018), emphasis will not only be on updated progress of SinoProbe–I, but will also focus on recent research on the lithosphere across the world. The meeting will serve as a platform where participants exchange ideas on progress in deep exploration of the lithosphere, better understand deep processes in the earth, expand the new knowledge into practical applications, consider the future and promote international collaboration on deep exploration of the Earth. DEEP-2018 will offer an unprecedented opportunity for international collaboration within the earth sciences. It will also be a good time to introduce SinoProbe-Ⅱ, the new proposal and deployment as part of the ambitious Chinese National Scientific Program until 2030.
Abstract submission closes on 1 September 2018.
