Background of the Conference


The European Current Research on Fluid Inclusions (ECROFI XVII) will be held at the Department of Petrology and Geochemistry located on the Lagymanyos Campus of Eotvos University in Budapest, Hungary in 2003.
The conference provides an international forum for the exchange of research and new ideas of geoscientists from East to West focusing on studies of fluid and silicate inclusions.   Current results will be presented during oral and poster sessions, whereas informal discussions are encouraged during breaks, hosted receptions, meals and social events.
Conference participants include scientists from academy, government and industry. A lot of students are also expected to attend the meeting, as they are encouraged to come to Budapest, too.
To obtain a better time schedule and in order to promote more efficient discussions, the meeting will be separated into several thematic sections. The oral presentations will have the usual format of a 15 minute talk followed by a 5 minute open discussion.   Poster presentations are encouraged.

The official language of the meeting is ENGLISH.
