The Fifth bi-anual meeting of the LATINMAG will take place in the fall of (18-22 september) 2017 in the city of Querétaro at the Centro Académico y Cultural (CAC) of UNAM Juriquilla Campus. LATINMAG is celebrating 10 years of existence and we are planning a special event for this occasion. We hope you can join us in Querétaro. The city is a jewel of the XVII and XIX century colonial architecture in central Mexico. The local organizing committee and LATINMAGs Executive Committee are pleased to invite you to the V LATINMAG Bi-annual Meeting that is being co-organized by the Centro de Geociencias and the Instituto de Geofísica of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).
LATINMAG is the Latin American Association of Paleomagnetism and Geomagnetism. It was founded in 2007 having as objectives the promotion of research in discipline of rock and mineral magnetism, geomagnetism, and paleomagnetism in latin-american countries, as well as develop mechanisms for the collaboration between scientists, students and professionals in these fields.
To reach our goals, at LATINMAG we organize a meeting every two years. Our bi-annual meetings are forums to present research advances, progress reports, and final results of different projects. During the meeting we organize workshops, courses and other activities that promote the free exchange of experiences, ideas and opinions in an environment of empathy, community, and friendship.
LATINMAG seeks to strengthen consolidated research groups and boost developing centers for research in the field.
The first day of LATINMAG meeting will be dedicated to young scientists and students. With this in mind, we are organizing workshops in rock magnetism, instrumentation, scientific writing, and statistics. Please visit this page again for an update of this activities.
Those interested in participate in the young scientist events please email the event coordinator.

"Terrestrial magnetism, from the Precambrian until today" is the theme selected for the V LATINMAG meeting. In this context, the topics for the congress include rock and mineral magnetism, environmental magnetism, magnetic proxies of climate change, paleomagnetism, tectonics, magnetic fabric, deformation of the earth’s crust, magnetostratigraphy, geomagnetism, archeomagnetism, geodinamo models, earth-sun interactions, terrestrial electromagnetism, biomagnetism, and prospecting methods, based on electromagnetis.
We invite scientists making research i to propose additional sessions in related topics.
Joshua Feinberg will be joining us, as a guest conferencist from the University of Minnesota, introducing the talk: “Humans and the paleoenvironment: What can we learn about hominins by studying the magnetism of speleothems and archaeological sites in caves?”.
