A virtual workshop (vPASES2020) for early-career researchers will be held from 9-11 November 2020 in preparation for the "Past Socio-Environmental Systems (PASES)" workshop in 2021.

The event will be held from 9:00-11:00 UTC on all three days.

This virtual workshop is being organized by PAGES Early-Career Network.


The online workshop aims to facilitate scientific exchange between early-career researchers (ECRs) from a broad range of disciplines, who work within the overarching theme of climate-environment-cultural change, which is at the core of both PAGES’ and INQUA’s missions.

It is open for approximately 25 participants. After the workshop, online discussions will run until the in-person workshop takes place in 2021. Organizers believe this innovative formula will help all participants to connect and overcome the lack of training and network opportunities due to COVID-19.


The program will be spread over three days, consisting of two hours per day. There will be 20 oral presentations (10 mins) and two invited keynote speakers (30 mins).

9 November

Invited speaker: César Méndez (Human paleoecology in semi-arid regions)

10 November

Invited speaker: Yoshi Maezumi (Synthesizing archaeological, paleoecological and paleoclimatic records)

11 November

Breakout groups and roundtable discussions with senior scientists


Details on how to register will be announced by 7 October.

Registration will close 29 October.
