We are pleased to announce the LASI V workshop on "The physical geology of subvolcanic systems: laccoliths, sills and dykes".

The conference will be held in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, 29-30. October 2012.

Field trip will go to the Karoo Basin (31.10 to 3.11).

The LASI conferences gather specialists in volcanology, tectonics, structural geology, petrology, geochemistry, geochronology, geophysics, exploration geology, and modelers.

Since 2002, the open LASI community gathers scientists interested in shallow-level tabular igneous intrusion. Four international conferences have been held since then, each one with 40-50 participants from 10-17 countries, presenting papers and attending a field trip to tabular intrusions. The conferences put in evidence the vitality of this research community as well as the relevance of the topic to societal needs such as hydrocarbon and ore mineral exploration, natural hazards, and climate change.
