About the symposium

We are pleased to announce the international symposium "Origin, Evolution & Dynamics of the Earth & Planetary Interiors", to be held at Misasa, Japan, on March 18 (Mon) ~ 21 (Thur), 2019. The symposium is jointly organized by the Institute for Planetary Materials, Okayama University (as Misasa-2019), and by the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas Project "Interaction and Coevolution of the Core and Mantle" (as CMC).
