ECROFI 2017 – Nancy, France

European Current Research On Fluid Inclusions


First held in Bern in 1969, ECROFI is back in Nancy for the third time following successful meetings in 1978 and 1997.

ECROFI 2017 (European Current Research on Fluid Inclusions) will take place in Nancy (France) from 23–29 June 2017, and will be organised by the GeoRessources and CRPG laboratories. This biennial international conference is dedicated to the investigation of fluids and magmas at all scales through the study of fluid and melt inclusions.

Among the many topics addressed during the three days of presentations, fluid and melt inclusions represent the main focus of ECROFI. Highlights will include new developments (analytical, experimental, and thermodynamics) and applications in diagenetic, metamorphic, magmatic and volcanic environments and related petroleum, mineral and geothermal systems.

The careers of Jean Dubessy and Bernard Poty will be celebrated in a special session. The meeting will be preceded by workshops on selected analytical methods and an excursion to the Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines Mineral and Gem International show. A mid-conference fieldtrip to the Champagne vineyards is also on the programme !

It is with great pleasure that we warmly invite you to Nancy for ECROFI 2017!
