The 12th International Symposium on the Ordovician System will be hosted on
the campus of James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, June
8-11, 2015. Visit the web site at to download
the Second Circular.

 The scientific sessions in Harrisonburg will be preceded and followed by
geological excursions to study the Ordovician successions of the
Appalachian Mountains of the Eastern US. A field excursion is also planned
for the Ordovician carbonate and siliciclastic deposits of Oklahoma (site
of the Katian GSSP), and a field excursion is planned to the spectacular
succession of Ordovician dark shale in Idaho.  The 5 field trips are
described in more detail in the Second Circular and on the web site.

Themes for the 12th ISOS include *Ordovician climate, isotope stratigraphy,
biostratigraphy, regional stratigraphy, paleoecology and paleobiogeography*,
and we welcome contributions on all aspects of Ordovician geology.

Please complete the pre-registration survey at
download the pre-registraion form from the ISOS2015 web site and submit it to 2015ISOS at

We look forward to seeing you in Virginia in 2015!
