Dear colleagues!

The IX All-Russian Lithological Conference is a continuation of the traditions of All-Russian Lithological meetings, which have been regularly held for several decades in different cities of the Russian Federation. Taking into account the new realities, there is a need to exchange the experience of research of scientists from different countries on lithological problems and on the search for sedimentary natural resources. It is planned to discuss the achievements and modern problems of lithology at the conference, exchange new data on the genesis of sedimentary rocks and methods of their investigation, consider the possibilities of new unconventional methods of sedimentation and correlation of sedimentary deposits, discuss the patterns of placement, prediction and search for the mineral exploration in sedimentary strata.
We invite you to take a part in the IX All-Russian lithological meeting "Lithology of sedimentary complexes of Eurasia and shelf areas", which will be held in the first decade of October 2019 in the Kazan (Volga Region) Federal University, Kazan.
