France is at the 7th of March on strike. The minisymposium will take place anyway!

Two times we had to postpone the Mininisymposium X due to Covid; Now we are optimistic for the third try ...


We organize the 10th (!) Poroelasticity Minisymposium on Tuesday, 7. March 2023.


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.

Please let us know your contribution. Feel invited! We just need the title. Based on your inputs we will create the final program.
