The workshop is intended for research workers and postgraduate students interested in the rapidly expanding interdisciplinary research area of clay mineralogy. The organisation of the workshop will be flexible enough to allow time for broad discussions, with lectures in the morning and informal presentations in the afternoons. There will be scheduled lectures, but also enough opportunity for everyone to outline briefly their field of interest.

Registration fees: students € 30.- / academia € 60.- / industrial participants € 175.-
