Registration and payment

The registration package includes the conference itself, coffee breaks and refreshments, a conference dinner and mid-conference field trip. We charge no abstract fees. Accommodation is not included.

Registration is now closed. If you still would like to attend, you can contact us at to see if we can still accommodate you. If you have been given a registration link previously, it should still work, contact us in case of problems.


The price, all inclusive, is 700 € (regular), 500 € (students). Keynote speakers and student helpers get the agreed price, please use the promotional code we gave to you to get this discount/waiver.


Payment is done by credit card (only) at the time of registration.

If for any reason you need to register first and pay later (invoice…), or cannot pay by credit card, or any other unforeseen circumstance, please be in touch with us (hutton10 AT

Abstract submission is now closed !

and the scientific program has been built, with a mixture of oral presentations (few) and posters. The posters will be displayed centrally and will remain accessible for several days, in the same venue that will be used for coffee breaks (and poster time drinks) so they will feature centrally in the conference.

Field trips

Registration for field trips is now closed !

However, if you are still interested, you may contact the field trip leaders directly and see if they can perhaps offer you a place, or put you on the waiting list. Please understand that we can not make any promise, especially that close from the starting date.

The Conference does not organize accomodation for the participants. The easiest (but most expensive) option is to stay at Dino, where the conference is held; or at Simplon, belonging to the same group. At that stage, neither Dino nor Simplon hold rooms any more but you are still welcome to approach them. Please follow the links below to make your own booking.


Alternately, there is no shortage of other options in or near Baveno from camping to holiday flats to hotels, and you are welcome to make your own arrangements.

If you want to share a room with another participant to the conference, you can use this page as a virtual notice board to post ads offering, or requesting a bed. Such arrangements are purely private between individual participants and we take no responsibility whatsoever.

Options to reach Baveno are described on this page. From Milano airport, they include train, various busses and of course driving (see comments on the transport page)

The registration web site offers an option to express your interest with airport transfert from Milano Malpensa to Baveno (ca. 40 €). Please tick the relevant box and we will come back to you (Alessandro Deleo, alessandro.deleo AT Note that private company alibus runs a considerably cheaper, but perhaps less convenient shuttle every 2-3 hours. You can decide what is best for you…

Beware !

We have been informed that some participants have been approached by a company by the name of travelpoint, with equivocal phrasing suggesting that they may be in charge of organizing their stay in Baveno. This is totally bogus and the Hutton Conference has nothing to to with travelpoint. Should we make use of private companies, you will find them clearly listed on this web site.


The registration website will also allow you, should you wish so, to upload a photo of field, sample or thin section feature of interest. During the conference, we will select and print a number (~20 ?) of poster-size photographs depicting remarkable, enigmatic or interesting granitic features. These photos will serve as a basis for discussion sessions, where participants will have a chance to propose their interpretation of what’s happening. If you want to submit a photo to that effect, use the option on the registration web site. It is your responsibility to make sure that you own the rights for this photo. Please also make sure that you are uploading an image with enough resolution to allow large size printing (no less than 2500 pixel wide). Of course you can always change your mind and be in touch latter (Roberto Weinberg, Roberto Weinberg, roberto.weinberg AT and Michel de Saint-Blanquat, michel.desaintblanquat AT

We also plan to give a Hutton T-shirt to the participants, please indicate your size during registration.

Financial support

We are aware that this is not a trivial amount of money, especially for students and/or participants from lower income countries. We’ve been fortunate enough to be able offer a limited amount of travel grants.
