The Economic Geology Research Unit (EGRU) at James Cook University will host the 8th international ACROFI conference and invites academics, researchers, students and industry professionals to join us in Townsville, Queensland, from 15-18 June 2020.

The main theme of the conference is the study of fluid-and-melt inclusions. The meeting typically has an informal character and is ideally suited for students to present their results and meet experts in their fields. The meeting will include three days of presentations (oral and poster) preceded by a two day workshop (basic concepts of fluid inclusion studies, LA-ICP-MS analyses of fluid inclusions, lab visit) and followed by a one-day post-conference field trip.

Conference topics will include:

  • New developments in fluid research including analytical
  • Experimental, and thermodynamics aspects
  • Magmatic melts and fluids, fluids in volcanic systems
  • Metamorphic fluids
  • Hydrothermal ore deposits and mineral exploration

Keynote Speakers:

  • Robert Bodnar, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, USA
  • Katy Evans, Curtin University,  Australia
  • John Mavrogenes, Australian National University, Australia
  • Pei Ni, Nanjing University, China
  • Jung Hun Seo, Inha University, South Korea
