We organize the seventh Poroelasticity Minisymposium on Tuesday, 20. February 2018.


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.

Program of the Minisymposium 2018


The venue is at the University of Stuttgart, Germany.

The exact address is:

Special section in Geophysics

We (the organizers of the Poroelasticity Minisymposium, among others) edit a special section in the journal "Geophysics" entitled:

Hydromechanical phenomena at the pore scale and their upscaling

This special section is not officially connected to the minisymposium; however, the topic is of course strongly related to the minisymposium.

We invite all minisymposium participants and everybody else to consider submitting their recent work to this special section.
