Abstract submission will occur on a companion site (so that you have a bit more time to submit your abstract):

The registration (for the conference) is open until the 15th of May 2023. Applicants to travel grants will have the opportunity to register after the deadline, when they have been informed of the outcome of their application.

Once registered, you can edit, revisit or submit your abstract until the 15th of June 2023.


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.

Travel grants

The Friedländer Foundation of Volcanology offers to support 10 to 15 early-career researchers (ECRs) from low-income countries to travel to Baveno and attend the 10th Hutton Symposium. The grant would be up to 1000 CHF. The interested persons should provide a short (max 1 page) motivation letter and 1-2 page CV directly to the president of the foundation, prof. Peter Ulmer, at

The deadline for travel applications is the 15th of May. We will let you know about the outcome before the end of May, and of course registration deadline will be expanded accordingly for applicants to allow everybody who applied to a grant (irrespective of the outcome of the application) to register.


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


Should you eventually decide to cancel your participation after registering, the following rules apply:

  • Cancellation until the 30th of June: full refund
  • Cancellation until the 31st of July: 50% refund
  • Cancellation after the 1st of August: no refund

Please be in touch with us in that case (hutton10 AT


Abstracts are submitted on a companion website. This can be done at the time of registration, or any time after that before the 15th of June. Abstracts are 400 words long (keynote abstracts are double length, and should be submitted directly by email to the organizers; hutton10 AT Each participant can only submit one abstract (or one in addition of their keynote, if applicable).

Abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee.

During registration, you can indicate a preference (oral or poster) and we will do our best to honour it, but we can not guarantee that you get your favourite mode of presentation. Bear in mind that 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.

Western Alps : Jean-Baptiste Jacob, j.b.jacob AT (cancelled)

Massif Central : Oscar Laurent, oscar.laurent AT (a few places left)

Due to lack of participants, we unfortunately had to cancel some of the field trips.


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. 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 are in a position to offer a limited amount of travel grants (this will depend on total number of participants, sponsors, and so on). We would like to be able to help more colleagues however, so if you are aware of possible sponsors, allowing us to lower the overall price and/or to offer targeted travel grants/discounted registration packages, please let us know!
