The Study of the Earth’s Deep Interior (SEDI) focusses on the study of Earth’s mantle and core and has links to comparative planetology.
The meeting will comprise invited review talks, contributed student-presented talks and discussion about the big, unsolved questions in deep Earth research. Additionally we will have the opportunity for poster presentations over an extended lunch. This meeting will help to identify important topics in deep Earth research to which the UK SEDI community might contribute and we hope to foster new collaborations between UK and international deep Earth researchers. Submissions for contributed talks (abstract required) or posters (title required) on any SEDI-related theme are welcome; see details below.

Student travel support
We have funds to contribute towards travel for several students who wish to attend. Those wishing to take advantage of these should apply by the abstract deadline. Applications will take the form of a short (ideally electronic) letter addressed to the organisers, detailing your expected travel expenses. Awards are expected to be typically about £60, but this is not a hard limit for applications. Awardees are expected to have submitted a title or abstract for a presentation, but this is also not a hard requirement.
Please contact Andy Nowacki with any queries.
