Registration and payment

Registration is managed by ETH Zürich, who will issue the relevant documentation (invoice etc). Please use this link:

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

Please note, the registration for the field trips will close relatively early, for practical (bookings…) reasons. Please register for the field trips before the 15th of March 2023.

The general registration (for the conference) will remain open a bit longer (but this is no reason to procrastinate!)

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


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.

The price 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 this is a problem, please be in touch with us (Financial coordinator, Olivier Bachmann : olivier.bachmann 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; Scientific coordinator, Jean-François Moyen: Jean_Francois.MOYEN 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

Both pre- and post-conference field trips are offered. We ask you to register early for the trips as we only have limited space on them, and to help us making logistical arrangments (we need to book vehicles, hotels etc. in Europe’s touristic season).

If you have any question, please be in touch with the coordinator of each trip, namely

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

Massif Central : Oscar Laurent, oscar.laurent AT

Adamello : Peter Ülmer, peter.ulmer AT

Ophiolites : Lydéric France, lyderic.france AT

Bohemian Massif : Vojtěch Janoušek, vojtech.janousek AT

Calabria : Patrizia Fiannacca, patrizia.fiannacca AT

Elba : Federico Farina, federico.farina AT

If we do not have enough participants to a trip to make it viable, we reserve the right to cancel it and offer you either a refund, or a place in another trip. We plan to reach a final decision by early April.


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 link 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 arrangments.

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

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 may be in a position to offer a limited amount of travel grants (this will depend on total number of participants, sponsors, and so on). Thus, 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!
