mid-conference fieldtrip

A preliminary list of participants in each of the three mid-conference fieldtrip options is available for download below. Please notice that the number of participants in FT-4A is limited to 39 because of difficulties of access to outcrops, so we had to apply the “first registered, first served” criterion and transfer some attendants to the other two options.

Those who did not enroll in any of the options and wish to enroll should inform the Secretary until Tuesday September 22 at 14:00 h, and will be allocated in FT-4C.

Exchanges can be made by arrangements between the participants, but must necessarily be reported to the Secretary.before Tuesday 14:00 h.

If there is availability, places will be offered to accompanying persons in FT-4C. If you are interested, please inform the Secretary as soon as possible. We will confirm the availability on Tuesday 14:00 h, and you will need to confirm your subscription by paying  the rate of R$ 120 until 17:00 h of the same day.
