11th Assembly of Petrology and Geochemistry

Welcome to the homepage of the 11th Assembly of Petrology and Geochemistry. The conference will be held on 2-4 September 2021 at the Geodetic and Geophysical Institute, in Sopron (6-8 Csatkai Endre street, Sopron, 9200).

Assemblies of Petrology and Geochemistry have been held annually since 2009. It is the official meeting of the Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Petrology Committee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and of the Mineralogy and Geochemistry Section of the Hungarian Geological Society. It is organized by different groups or institutes of our community every year. Contrary to its name researchers are not only expected from the field of petrology and geochemistry but from related fields as well (e.g., volcanology, mineralogy, environmental sciences).

This year (postponed from last year) the conference is devoted to all forms of metamorphosis (including alteration, transformation, metamorphism…), however other topics are also accepted. It is organized by Edit Király and GGI (Geodetic and Geophysical Institute), Volcanology Research Group (Eötvös University) and Szeged University.

Oral and poster submissions will be presented on the first and third day, while the second day is dedicated to a field trip focusing on high pressure metamorphic rocks, in the Alpine metamorphic region of the Sopron Mountains. You will be able to present your last year work, published already in the last year conference book, as well as your new research or an updated one of the last year. Plenary lecturers are also invited. Even though the official language of the assembly is Hungarian, you are welcome to present your research in English. 

The registration will be opening after Easter. The deadline for the payment, registration and abstract will be announced here later, sometime on the second half of May.
