Metamorphic Studies Group 40th Anniversary Meeting

Please consider attending the annual Metamorphic Studies Group (MSG) Research in Progress (RiP) meeting, which will be held virtually over Zoom on three consecutive afternoons (GMT) on 29-31 March 2021. 

New Abstract deadline: 7th February 2021

The meeting will be the 40th anniversary of MSG, and we are delighted to announce three keynote speakers to mark the occasion:

  • Dr Freya George, Johns Hopkins University, who will discuss O-isotope records of heterogeneous fluid fluxing in HP melanges
  • Dr Bruna Carvalho, University of Padova, who will discuss fluid-rock interactions in granulites
  • Dr Pierre Lanari, University of Bern, who will discuss development of tools for compositional mapping and modelling (e.g. XMapTools) 

In addition, Prof. Mike Brown (University of Maryland), who helped found MSG, will give a special invited talk on “A perspective on 40 years of advances in metamorphic geology”.

Registration is free for all to attend, but needs to be made in advance of the meeting. See below.

Oral presentations will be 12 minutes long with 3 minutes allocated for questions. Breakout rooms will be made available at the end of sessions to facilitate discussion during a coffee break. Poster submissions will be available to view virtually and for comment in the week prior to the meeting, and a short presentation slot (3 minutes, with slides) will be allocated during the meeting to advertise the poster, also prior to opening a breakout room for discussion. 

Online submission of abstracts has now closed. The programme will be announced shortly.

Details of social events following the closure of each day’s proceedings will also be made available closer to the event. 

We look forward to a celebration of all things metamorphic. Please note that this online meeting replaces the planned in-person meeting in Cambridge due to continued COVID uncertainty, and the associated phase equilibria modelling workshop has been cancelled.
