3rd Bohemian Massif Meeting in Presseck 2018

Proceedings to 3rd Bohemian Massif Workshop are available (download PDF)

Conference program see below

Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce a 3rd Bohemian Massif  meeting, that will be held from June 15th - 17th 2018 in Presseck/Neumühle in Bavaria/Germany. This meeting follows two successfull meetings organized in 2014 and 2016 by Austrian and Czech colleagues in the Šumava/Böhmerwald.

Apart from one day of talks and discussion, the Presseck meeting will include a pre- and a post-conference field trip. Most of you, who will participate in the pre-conference field trip, will probably arrive in the late afternoon or in the evening of June, 14th 2018. In this case, we will met at the meeting place (Ferienhof Neumühle, see below), where delicous food and Franconian beer are available.

The pre-conference field trip will be on June, 15th, 2018. We will start at 8:30 a.m. at the meeting place (Ferienhof Neumühle). The field trip is focusing on the southern flank of the Schwarburg Anticline, the Ziegenrück syncline, the Gräfenthaler Horst, and the different nappes of the Münchberg massif.

The post-conference field trip will be on June, 17th, 2018. We will start at 8:30 a.m. at the meeting place (Ferienhof Neumühle). The field trip will show various rocks in the surroundings of the superdeep well, KTB, including Paleozoic rocks and Greenschist zone of Erbendorf, Zone of Erbendorf-Vohenstrauss and Variscan Granites of the Oberpfalz. One stop will be at the KTB drilling site. The post-conference field trip will end at ca. 4:00 p.m. in Flossenbürg/Oberfpalz. 

In case you wish to present a talk, please send us a title of your contribution and an abstract (1 page) so as we can arrange the program.

The conference and the field trips are without fee. For this reason, some additional cars are probably required from participants to carry out the field trips.

The deadline for registration is January 31st 2018.

Please note that this deadline holds for
(1) submission of abstracts (1 page),
(2) registration for pre- and post-conference field trips, and
(3) booking of accommodation.
