Fluids are one of the key parameters for geochemical and geodynamic processes in the crust and play a major role in shaping the modern Earth. Fluid-mineral and fluid-rock interactions and their resulting rock record have been therefore a very active field of research over the past decades. Bruce Yardley, who recently retired from his professorship at the University of Leeds, has been intensively working in this field throughout his career on various aspects ranging from the study of fluid inclusions, fluid-mineral interactions, thermodynamics, experimental to field based metamorphic petrology and low temperature geochemical processes to name only a few. His contributions are highly recognized and significantly advanced our understanding of the role of fluids in the crust.
The session is aimed to cover a broad range of aspect studying fluids in the crust Bruce has been working on to visualize the progress that has been made in the field over the duration of his remarkable career.

The Keynote speaker will be Lukas Baumgartner (Université de Lausanne, Switzerland).

Food for good

food for good

As of 2015, Palacongressi di Rimini offers its clients the opportunity to recover leftover food from their events and donate it to charities . Palacongressi endorses Food For Good - from meeting to solidarity, an initiative born out of a collaboration between Federcongressi, Food Bank and Equoevento. Every year in Italy, over 6 tons of food go to waste; at the same time, there are 10 million people living in poverty, 6.3 of which in conditions of absolute poverty, including 1 million children between the ages of 0-5 years. The contribution of organisers and exhibitors at the Palacongressi is therefore of major importance: with no additional costs and in agreement with Summertrade chefs, the catering company of the Rimini Fiera Group and official partner of the Palacongressi, menus are planned which are suitable both for the guests' needs and for the conservation and transport of any leftovers, resulting in a worthy act of social responsibility for the local area. The results and the feedback we have had in the first months of the project speak for themselves. Contact our staff for more information: always ready to help guide your choice.  The association chosen by Palacongressi is Opera Sant'Antonio di Rimini, a group of volunteers that manages the city's soup kitchen.
