Description : This Symposium will focus on topics related to the tectonic history and configuration of the edges of Paleo- and Mesoproterozoic margins of Laurentia and proto-Laurentia. We welcome contributions from researchers working on the interactions of various cratonic blocks within Laurentia; on accretion, collision and orogenic development within the continental interior and particularly along the present-day outer margins.
