The 2015 edition of the now traditional conference dedicated to the Variscan-Alleghenian orogen will be held on 9-11 June, 2015 in Rennes, France. We warmly invite you to participate and submit an abstract now.
 
The registration is now open. Abstracts have to be submitted through the conference website http://variscan2015.univ-rennes1.fr/. There, you will also find the second circular and more up-to-date information.
 
The deadline for regular registration and abstract submission is 31 March 2015.
 
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. Keynotes will be presented by several internationally renowned specialists (see webpage).
 
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. Please note that for logistic reasons the two excursions had to be inverted with respect to the original programme.
 
Don't hesitate to spread the word!
We are looking forward to see you in Rennes!
 
All the best from the organizing committee
