Asian Current Research on Fluid Inclusions

8th Biennial ACROFI Conference

16-18 June 2020

Rydges Southbank

Townsville, Queensland


The Economic Geology Research Centre (EGRU) at James Cook University is proud to host the 8th international ACROFI conference and invites academics, researchers, students and industry professionals to join us in Townsville, in tropical north-eastern Queensland, from 16-18 June 2020.

The main theme of the conference is the study of fluid- and melt inclusions. The meeting typically has an informal character and is ideally suited for students to present their results and meet experts in their fields.

The meeting will include three days of presentations (oral and poster) preceded by a two day workshop (basic concepts of fluid inclusion studies, LA-ICP-MS analyses of fluid inclusions, lab visit) and followed by a one-day post-conference field trip.

Conference topics include:

  • New developments in fluid research including analytical, experimental, and thermodynamics aspects
  • Magmatic melts and fluids
  • Fluids in volcanic systems
  • Metamorphic fluids
  • Hydrothermal ore deposits and mineral exploration
