Dear colleagues,

Due to the health and administrative risks associated with the current global spread of the Covid-19 disease, and due to strict emergency measures taken by the Argentine government, effective until further notice, the local organizers and the AAS decided to postpone the VIII Latin-American Congress of Sedimentology (CLS Congress) and the XVII Argentine Meeting of Sedimentology (RAS Meeting), scheduled for June 8–11, 2020, in  Paraná (Argentina).

Both jointly decided to reschedule the congress for a year: June 8-11, 2021.  Detailed information about the re-opening dates for the submission of abstracts, registration, refunds, etc will be announced as soon as possible through the AAS website, the official mail of the congress and in social media.

The health, safety and well-being of all participants and organizers, exhibitors, guests and sponsors are our priority. We would like to thank all colleagues that have sent the abstracts and who already paid the registration. We are convinced that rescheduling of the  XVII RAS – VIII CLS Congress in Paraná (Argentina) for a year is the best solution on how to reduce any adverse outcomes stemming from the current situation.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may bring to you, but it is an emergency that is beyond our control. We ask for your understanding and your important participation in the new date of the Congress, being able to count to the maximum with our commitment and hospitality to make an excellent meeting.

As soon as the Organizing Committee can meet we will circulate more detailed information.

Best regards,


Organizing Committee XVII RAS – VIII CLS
