Tatara-San Pedro Volcanic Complex in Chile is one of the best studied continental arc volcanic centers in the world. In connection to this, a field forum was conducted to discuss the processes involved in the construction of such volcanoes and the origins of its magmas. With 40 international participants from diverse scientific backgrounds, the forum opened in the Talca municipal library with two days of presentation, fieldworks and a hike to the trailhead. The key issues that were tackled include information on the compositions, ages, and distributions of preserved eruptive products.
