Following the successful first symposium in honour of the late Professor David Roberts in 2014 we have inaugurated a biannual conference devoted to passive margins called The Roberts Conference. The meeting is programmed for the 6th – 8th of April 2016 at Royal Holloway University of London.

Passive margins have been a key frontier for successful hydrocarbon exploration, and consequently extensive geological research, for a number of decades. With new insights from on-going technological advancements and acquisition of high quality 2D and 3D reflection seismic data classical models once used to interpret passive margins no longer suffice. The complexity of these geological systems that is now being revealed demands further understanding of the role of such mechanisms as depth-dependant and differential stretching through the lithosphere, polyphase deformation, magmatic activity, and the interplay between structure and sedimentation in rift and passive margin development.

This conference aims to bring together researchers and industry personnel to address these themes and to discuss the current state of understanding of these exciting and complex geological systems.
