This 2-day meeting aims to bring together workers from industry and academia, resulting in a compilation of papers, which will form a comprehensive account of this important area.

Themes will range from

• mechanisms and geometries of deposition of conglomeratic, proximal submarine fans

• sediment supply systems on the graben footwalls

• structural controls on deposition and the structural evolution of the graben

• development of the hydrocarbon systems within the graben

Although primarily focused on the South Viking Graben, contributions on relevant processes or analogues from the North Sea or elsewhere will also be included. Hopefully the results may stimulate further exploration activity in this region and also provide analogues for the exploration and development of other rift systems.
