22th – 28th September 2024
Organized by Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnología del Carbono (INCAR-CSIC)
Chamber of Commerce of Oviedo Building, Oviedo, Spain
In 2024 the International Committee for Coal and Organic Petrology will be holding its 75th Meeting in Oviedo (https://gecarbon.org/75-iccp-meeting/). This is an extraordinary opportunity to meet and celebrate and to think on the challenges of Organic Petrology in the forthcoming years. Spain has hosted the ICCP meetings six times. The first three in the 60s were held in Madrid and the next three in Oviedo. The city will be dressed in its best clothes right after the patronal feast of St Matthew finishing the 21st of September. An additional attraction is that Oviedo has been elected as Spanish Capital of Gastronomy for 2024. Therefore, during your stay, you will have the chance to taste many of the delicacies that have made Oviedo deserving this honour. At the time of writing this note the COP28 has finally found an agreement on the “transition away from fossil fuels” and therefore, the Meeting will be a good opportunity to reflect on the Theme:
Organic Petrology Research and Applications for the 21st Century
The Meeting is organized by the Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnología del Carbono (INCAR-CSIC) together with the Institutional Delegation of CSIC in Asturias and will take place downtown in the building of the Chamber of Commerce of Oviedo which is also the venue of the CSIC Institutional Delegation in Asturias. The daytime is still long in September, the weather is typically mild and we will have the opportunity to visit the pre-Romanesque (IX Century) Monuments in Mount Naranco designated as UNESCO Heritage Sites and a field trip to see some of the Formations responsible for the relief of the Cantabrian Mountains, which are also rich in organic matter.
Within this framework the Organizing Committee is having the pleasure to host the 75th ICCP Meeting and is preparing a Commemorative Book to remember this date to which every member can contribute with his/her experience about the organization. This will be a unique forum to interact in a week-long meeting to discuss and exchange ideas, and thus contributing to the future of Organic Petrology.
