The subjects to be discussed are:
1. The oldest
(Archean) continental and oceanic Earth’s crust: composition, age and genesis.
2. Tectonics, composition and geodynamics of Archean and Proterozoic
3. Relations of greenstone and granitoid
4. Isotopic, geochemical and petrological constraints on
models of granite-greenstone systems formation.
5. Comparative analysis
of Archean, Proterozoic and Phanerozoic greenstone and granitoid complexes.
Conference sessions will be held in the Conference Hall,
Institute of Geology, Karelian Research Centre, RAS, Pushkinskaya St, 11,
Both oral presentations and posters are welcome. Each speaker
will have 20 minutes for presentation and questions. An invited speakers will
