Aim & Scope

The Alpine Workshop is held every two years to promote interdisciplinary research on the Alps and Alpine-type orogens.

This year marks the centenary of the publication "La Tectonique de l'Asie" (September 1924) by Émile Argand (1879-1940), to whom this conference is officially dedicated. In the wake traced by the celebrated Swiss geologist, who emphasized the potential of geometric and kinematic analyses at regional scales integrated with stratigraphic, paleontological, and geophysical data, the conference aims to promote the discussion of new data and interpretations on the evolution of the Alps, the Apennines and adjacent peri-Mediterranean orogens. The meeting will be held in an informal and friendly atmosphere that will bring together senior researchers with young and early careers scientists.

Following the tradition of earlier Alpine Workshop, we are pleased to announce the publication of a Special Issue in the Swiss Journal of Geosciences, one of the leading journals on Alpine geology.
