About CMC

The Conjugate Margins Conferences have a proven record of bringing together people to share new data and ideas about the evolution of sedimentary basins and their associated petroleum systems in the Atlantic margins.


Each conference has had a successively greater number of delegates and especially students.


The organizers strive to create a gathering that encourages the building of business and research relationships with the goal of improving knowledge and prospectivity of this under-explored global petroleum province.


Field Workshops

Do not miss the scientific field workshops organised in conjunction with the Conjugate Margins Conference.


During the first workshop, you will have the unique opportunity to examine the salt tectonics and the Alpine compressional event in Essaouira Basin for 2 days.

Following the Conference, we will embark on the second workshop, a 4-day research trip examining the depositional systems superbly exposed in the Argana Valley and Essaouira-Agadir Basin.
