TSK Jena 2018 was the 17th Symposium of Tectonics, Structural Geology and Crystalline Geology. It was hosted at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, in the city of light, Jena.

The symposium had 140 registered participants from 20 countries spanned across 3 continents.

Scientific objectives

TSK welcomes contributions ranging from the study of intra-crystalline deformation processes of naturally and experimentally deformed rocks to orogen-scale studies of active and inactive accretionary systems and genetically associated sedimentary basins, as well as large-scale, plate tectonic reconstructions.

We encourage contributions covering many temporal scales, ranging from slow viscous creep associated with solid-state metamorphic reactions during the formation of ductile shear zones to the rapid deformation recorded during seismic events in actively deforming plate margin settings.
