diez-anios.pngThis meeting is a special one, since our society celebrates 10 years of its foundation. We give Daniel Valencio recognition to two great colleagues: Marcia Ernesto and Ana Sinito. We remember and pay homage to Ruben Somoza for his important contributions to the paleomagnetism of our region.

This meeting program comprised 81 contributions: 4 invited lectures, and 77 regular presentations; 47 of the latter were conferences and 28 were presented as posters. The contributions cover a wide range of topics that were organized in different mixed sessions during the Meeting; the program of the meeting can be seen at:

In the present volume the contributions are subdivided into the five main topics (GEP, MA, PM, MR, AM) described in the Index, and an additional one of general topics (GP). The invited lectures and some contributions are not published here because authors did not present their contributions as Expanded Abstracts, so they are available as short abstracts in the program meeting. The Expanded Abstracts were all submitted to revision, we thanks to the reviewers of the editorial board that did the revisions and of course to the authors for their efforts an quick response. We would also like to acknowledge all members of the Local Organizing Committee for accomplishing a very successful and charming meeting.
