Welcome to the XIII International Workshop on Modelling of Mantle and Lithosphere Dynamics! The workshop was initiated in 1987 in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, Germany, and has been followed by meetings every two years in various European countries. The last two workshops were held in Gross Doelln, Germany, in 2011, and in Braunwald, Switzerland, in 2009.
The 2013 workshop will be held in Hønefoss, Norway. The meeting is cosponsored by the Norwegian Research Council (NFR), the Thematic Meeting Series of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), the European Research Council (ERC), and the Center of Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED, University of Oslo).
The 2013 scientific themes include
- Numerical techniques
- Subduction dynamics
- Linking surface and deep processes
- Geophysics, chemistry and dynamics of planetary
- Multi-scale physics of the crust and lithosphere
