About the Conference

The next Hutton Symposium, one the most important international meetings on igneous processes (“granites and related rocks”), will be held in Northern Italy, on the shore of the beautiful Lago Maggiore, from the 11th to the 15th of September 2023. Since its debut in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1987, the Hutton Symposium has become a very […]

Theme 1: Granites in geodynamic sites, planets and time

This theme deals with the Big Picture: where and when do granites and related rocks form? What controls their differences between various sites on our planet, or indeed between planets? How did granite magmatism evolve in time, and how does it impact the nature and evolution of the continental crust?

Theme 2: Genesis of granitic magmas: Competing models, competing processes

This theme is about the processes that lead to the formation of granitic (s.l.) magmas, and in particular aims at discussing the various pathways that may lead to them: melting, fractionation, mixing etc. This is the right place to tackle the old issue of the respective roles of mantle and crust. Information can be gained […]

Theme 3: Architecture of crustal magmatic systems and rate of magmatic processes

This theme addresses the physical shape and connectivity of magma networks at all scales, from the crust to the grain boundary and from the source to the volcano, including the plutonic-volcanic connection. We will discuss the rates of processes such as melting, melt extraction, magma motion, pluton accretion, eruption, as well as the mechanical and […]

Theme 4: Fluids in and around granites

In this theme, we discuss the role of evolution of melts, supercritical fluids, etc. in particular during final cooling and solidification of plutons. We also address the textural development of granitoids. We welcome contributions on pegmatites, ore deposits, geothermal fluids, etc.
