What you will learn
The biennial PACROFI conference series has been a leading international forum for the presentation of fluid and melt inclusion research. We anticipate a vibrant meeting of researchers from academia, industry, and government. We invite you to attend!
Keynote lectures will be allotted 40 minutes each. All other oral presentations will be allotted 20 minutes each. We ask that each speaker reserve five minutes at the end of his or her allotted time for audience questions and discussion.

Please be sure that you or one of your co-authors is present at your poster during the designated poster sessions to answer questions from conference participants.
