The official conference website will be finalised shortly and registration for the conference and field trips will open in due course.

We are looking forward to having an exciting scientific discussion on all aspects of the Variscan orogen, with a particular attention to the correlations between the fragments of the orogen, including not only the "classic" European massifs but also those of North Africa and North America.

The conference will be accompanied by two excursions to beautiful localities, including the world-famous blueschist-facies rocks of Ile de Groix and type localities of the C/S structures.

Don't hesitate to spread the word.

All the best,
