In 2013 we continue to organize the Poroelasticity Minisymposium. It will be organized in a similar way as last year, but we will give more emphasis to the poster presentations. The Poroelasticity Minisymposium will take place in Zurich on Tuesday, February 19th 2013.


It will be an informal one-day event (9:00 - 17:00) with presentations, posters, and plenty of time to elaborate and discuss new ideas and research directions. Theory, laboratory experiments and numerical investigations in the area of poroelasticity and rockphysics will be covered.

Besides the regular presentations, posters can be advertized in short 3-slides-3-minutes presentations to stimulate the discussions during the poster session. The poster format should be A0 portrait.
