Field trips

Pre- and post-conference trips

Several fieldtrips are planned before and after the conference:

  • Pre-conference trips:
    • Adamello Massif
    • French Massif Central
    • External crystalline massifs of the Alps
  • Post-conference trips:
    • Calabria
    • Elba
    • Bohemian Massif
    • Ophiolite-related granitoids in the Alps

Detailed description, including provisional itinerary are given below (swipe left/right to see them all). Note that the cost of the field trip is not included in registration.

Mid conference trip

In addition, a mid-conference field trip (included in the cost of the conference) will be held in the middle of the week, Wednesday 13th of September 2023. We will visit the Ivrea zone, a crustal section through the Alpine crust from volcanoes down to lower crustal mafic/ultramafic complexes, through migmatites, granites etc.
