Rodinia 2017: Conference and field trip announced! QLD, Australia in June 2017
Rodinia 2017: Supercontinent Cycles and Global Geodynamics is a continuation of the Rodinia meeting series, which have been held every 4–5 years. It brings together global experts and young researchers from a broad range of geoscience disciplines to study supercontinent histories and related geodynamic processes.

Hawaii Field Symposium Kailua-Kona, 9-13 December 2015
The first field symposium of Project 648 was successfully (and also enjoyably) held on the Big Island of Hawaii, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, near the center of the Pacific Plate and atop one of the two large low shearwave-velocity provinces (LLSVPs, or superplumes) in the Earth’s mantle.
A special, IGCP 648 related, issue of Tectonophysics celebrating the career of Cecilio Quesada was recently published. It was edited by Guest Editors J. Brendan Murphy, R. Damian Nance, and Stephen T. Johnston.
The 1st IGCP 648-sponsored volume on Supercontinent Cycles Through Earth History is now available. Edited by Z.X. Li, D.A.D. Evans, and J.B. Murphy.
A CCFS-sponsored short course on the global climatic phenomenon known as Snowball Earth will be held at Curtin University on 15 July, 2016.
Supercontinent cycles, LIPs, and geodynamic driving forces - Adelaide, 26–30 June, 2016.
Beijing, China, 18–20 August, 2016
Convened by IGCP 648, Cape Town, South Africa, 27 Aug–4 Sept, 2016.
