The 2016 Himalayan-Karakorum-Tibet Workshop
The organizing committee of the 2016 Himalayan-Karakorum-Tibet Workshop is pleased to welcome you to the heart of the French Alps. HKT 2016 will be held at the Paul-Langevin Centre in Aussois, France from May 9-12, 2016. This meeting will be focused on four broad themes, encompassing more detailed topics. The first two themes: the structure and geodynamics of the HKT region and earth surface processes come together in the third theme where we discuss the interactions between surface processes and deep earth processes. Finally we have some time devoted to hazards and resources in the HKT region. Prior to the workshop, a 3-day field trip in the French Alps will be offered.
The aim of the conference is to bring together international geoscientists working on the Himalaya-Karakoram-Tibet orogen, to exchange ideas and discuss important aspects of the latest research of the largest orogenic belt on the planet.
The workshop is being organised by iTECC (Investigating Tectonics, Erosion, Climate Couplings), a Marie Curie international training network formed in 2013 to study the Himalayan orogen. iTECC is excited to be hosting this important event and is pleased to welcome you to Aussois.
