The Pacific, Indo-Australia and Eurasian plates converge around the Philippine Sea plates in south and East Asia, resulting in one of the most tectonically active regions on earth. The area is also geologically and tectonically complex with numerous active tectonic environments, ranging from subduction to collision, and a long history of plate boundary interactions. The last decade has yielded a wide range of new observations, including detailed geologic data and high resolution crustal to mantle imaging. Here we seek oral and poster presentations that bear on the geologic history and geophysical character of modern and ancient plates in East Asia and their interactions since the Mesozoic. We also invite geodynamic models that integrate these diverse datasets into a more holistic view of this dynamic environment.
