Bringing together a diverse range of geoscience  expertise to harness recent breakthroughs to explore  the occurrence and evolution and geodynamic  processes of supercontinents.

Earth's geological evolution records cycles of supercontinent assembly and breakup. Research on supercontinent history has now matured and provides context for ever diversifying research on the processes related to supercontinent assembly and dispersal including the development of geodynamic modelling, imaging and analyzing large -scale geophysical data, global synthesis using large geological, palaeomagnetic, geochronological and geochemical datasets, palaeoclimatic modelling, and linking major mineralisation events to supercontinent cycles

Rodinia 2017 is part of IGCP Project “Supercontinent Cycles and Global Geodynamics” and builds on previous “Rodinia” meetings, which are held every 4–5 years to bring together global experts from a broad range of geological disciplines .  Past meetings include ; Rodinia 2005 in Fremantle, Rodinia 2009 (Geological Society of London Fermor Meeting) : Supercontinents, Super plumes & Scotland, held at Edinburgh, Scotland and Rodinia 2013 : Supercontinental Cycles and Geodynamics Symposium held at Moscow State University .

Rodinia 2017 will bring together geoscience expertise to present and discuss the latest progress in the occurrence and evolution history of supercontinents through geological time, to highlight the latest developments in the geodynamics of supercontinents, and developments in the relationships between supercontinents and other geological phenomena including updates in the global databases of geotectonics, palaeomagnetism, mineral deposits, and the occurrences of past mantle plume events . We will examine the link between supercontinent cycles and the deep mantle .  Rodinia 2017 welcomes contributions from all geoscientific fields related to supercontinents from all geological eras . The meeting will be hosted in Townsville, Queensland, Australia and will be followed by a post - conference field trip across the Mount Isa terrane, which is one of the most spectacularly preserved Paleoproterozoic terranes on Earth that holds clues about the configuration and evolution of supercontinents Nuna (Columbia) and Rodinia
