September 4-6-7, 2013
Place: Courmayeur (“Centro Congressi di Courmayeur”)
Except for invited and keynote presentations (25 minutes + 5 minutes discussion), all talks are allocated 15 minutes (12 minutes + 3 minutes discussion).
Presentations must be compatible with Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2010.
Oral contributions planned for September 4 must be uploaded at the registration desk at the Hotel Pavillon by 8.00 p.m. on September 3 .
Because of the syn-conference field excursion, oral contributions scheduled for September 6 must be uploaded on September 4, during coffee-break times at Courmayeur. Congress Center.
Finally, oral contributions planned for September 7 should be uploaded within September 6, during coffee-break times at Courmayeur. Congress Center.
Poster panels size will be 75 cm in width and 110 cm in height (portrait).
Each poster session will last one day, from 17.00 to 18.30. Contributors should hang up the posters during coffee-breaks and remove them at the end of the session.

6) HP-UHP DYNAMICS: NATURAL EXAMPLES AND NUMERICAL MODELLING
Invited speaker: P. van Keken

The official language of the Conference is English. Keynote lectures will be restricted to 30 minutes including discussion. Normal oral presentations will be restricted to 15 minutes including discussion. Poster sessions will be separately assigned to the various sessions.
We plan to organize a Special Volume in one of the international journals. Call for the volume preparation and information about deadlines and manuscripts format will be announced to all participants by e-mail in October 2013.
