The Aegean region and its environment are located in a complex geological belt in the eastern Mediterranean region that was shaped by almost the whole range of geological events, such as oceanic to continental subduction and collision followed by syn- to post-orogenic extension during the closure period of the Paleozoic to Mesozoic Tethys oceans. Therefore, the region preserves many records of several pulses of magmatic, sedimentary and metamorphic events together with economic mineral deposits and energy resources. With this complex framework, the region has become a geological laboratory to study, discuss and understand almost all of the geological processes and problems rising in an orogenic system. In order to share and discuss the new findings and ideas, we are now organizing the seventh of the traditional International Earth Science Colloquium on the Aegean Region, IESCA-2017 which will be held at Dokuz Eylul University, Izmir, Turkey (coastal city in the eastern Aegean Sea), 2-6 October 2017.
