Mineral Physics Research in Progress 2017 ========================================= <div style="float: right"> ![MPG logo](https://i.imgur.com/K1sQ7pR.png) </div> This meeting is designed to bring together researchers from all areas of high pressure mineralogy & crystallography, mineral magnetism, molecular crystallography, computational mineral physics, geophysics and planetary science to encourage sharing of the results of recent research. We aim to allow early career researchers (including research students and post-doctoral researchers) the opportunity to present research in any area of mineral physics to an interested audience from across the UK, and to enable the development of collaborations between UK-based researchers in mineral physics. Registration ------------ The meeting will take place in the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds in the afternoon of Wednesday 1st November and the morning of Thursday 2nd November. Registration for the meeting is free, but participants will need to fund the costs of their own travel and subsistence. Participants need to register for the meeting using [this form](https://goo.gl/forms/I0rcmKZJTZtco5cU2). We hope that all attendees will be willing to present their latest research either in an oral session, or as a poster. Travel ------ Those of you travelling to Leeds will find the School near the centre of the University of Leeds campus in an extension to the concrete brutalist buildings from the 1960s. Openstreetmap seem to make the best job of locating buildings within the University campus and [this map](http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=53.8057&mlon=-1.5557&zoom=16) should be useful. The main entrance is on the north side of the building and seminar rooms are on the same floor as the as the entrance, immediately behind reception. Further guidance on finding the right area of the University can be found online [here](http://www.see.leeds.ac.uk/contact/find-us/). Schedule -------- In order to give participants time to travel to and from Leeds, the meeting will start after lunch on 1st November and finish in the early afternoon on 2nd November. A full timetable will be available in October, but confirmed invited speakers include Prof. Lidunka Vońćadlo (UCL), Prof. Richard Harrison (Cambridge) and Dr Geoffrey Bromiley (Edinburgh).
