The INQUA International Focus Group on Tephrochronology and Volcanism (INTAV) cordially invites you to participate in the Crossing New Frontiers - Tephra Hunt in Transylvania international field conference that aims to continue the long tradition of very successful inter-INQUA congress tephra meetings, as held previously in the USA, New Zealand, France, Canada and Japan. Crossing New Frontiers will be the first full INTAV-led tephra meeting since the Kirishima conference in Japan in 2010. URL:

Travel Support
As we approach some deadlines for the INTAV tephra conference "Crossing New Frontiers: Tephra Hunt in Transylvania" (24-29 June 2018), we are pleased to advise that we have revised the guidelines for student/ECR travel support. ECR eligibility is now up to 8 years (excluding breaks for family reasons) since receiving a PhD, a definition consistent with the INQUA guidelines for ECRs (see INQUA website:

Consequently, we have also extended the application deadline for ECRs/students to apply for travel support funding. Previously March 20th, the new deadline is now March 31st, 2018. This extension allows some extra time if more people are now eligible to apply for the funding support. The applications are not onerous and should not take long to prepare and submit. We look forward to seeing your application. Full details about applying are on the tephra conference website:

We take this opportunity to warmly encourage you and your students to register for the meeting sooner rather than later, and to submit your abstract(s), via the conference website. Although there is still plenty of time for early bird registration and abstract submission (deadline 30 April), the spectacular postconference field trip booking (deadline also 30 April) is on a 'first-come first-served' basis.
