PROGRAM

Following the spirit of previous International Eclogite Conferences, the X IEC focuses on all aspects of research on eclogite-facies metamorphism. Contributions on macro-, micro- and nano-scale observations, thermobarometry, geochemistry, geochronology, fluid phase evolution, experimental petrology, thermodynamic and numerical modelling, and geodynamic processes in orogenic belts are encouraged.

The Conference will incorporate oral presentations, posters and a syn-conference scientific excursion in the Sesia Zone.
 Pre- and post-conference scientific excursions are scheduled in locations such as the “cradle of UHP metamorphism”, but also in less known areas where recent discoveries relevant for HP/UHP topics have been made.

Attendance to the X International Eclogite Conference is a prerequisite to participate in the field excursions. Field excursion costs, which are not included in the conference fee, cover accommodation, meals, transportation and field-guides. For logistical reasons, the number of participants to the pre- and post-conference field excursions is limited. Places will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis upon full payment of the excursion and conference fees. Extra-participants will be added from a waiting list, in case booked participants withdraw.

Neither the organizers nor the field trip leaders are responsible for insurance covering illness or injury for individuals.
