The MagellanPlus Workshop IO:DIP "Indian Ocean: Delving Into the Past" aims to bring together experienced researchers with Early Career Scientists (ECS) who have a scientific interest in developing new drilling strategies in the Indian Ocean. IO:DIP has the objective to discuss, advance, and integrate mutually-beneficial drilling proposals for the Indian Ocean. IO:DIP intends to develop a framework of overarching and interconnected research goals, gathered under the umbrella of International Ocean Drilling. Thus, IO:DIP facilitates the synchronization of future Indian Ocean proposals to realize a more cost-effective implementation of large-scale scientific objectives. The workshop will further advance ideas developed during other recent Indian Ocean workshops (e.g., the 2020 Chapman Conference "On the Evolution of the Monsoon, Biosphere and Mountain Building in Cenozoic Asia"; the 2018 SPADE Workshop in Goa; the 2017 workshop "Land-Ocean Interactions Across the Indian Ocean: Toward Regional Integration of Recent Drilling Results" in Rhode Island; and the 2017 "Australasian IODP Regional Planning Workshop" in Sydney), with the express aim to strengthen existing (pre-)proposals and by developing a set of mutually beneficial drilling objectives.

Registration is free but mandatory for organization purposes.
