[Topo-Europe|http://www.topo-europe.eu] addresses the 4-D topographic evolution of the orogens and intra-plate regions of Europe through a multidisciplinary approach linking geology, geophysics, geodesy and geotechnology. TOPO-Europe will hold its 10th Annual Workshop in Barcelona on 17–19 September 2014.

!!Topo-Europe 2014
!!Interplay between surface, lithospheric, and mantle processes
!Barcelona, September 17-19, 2014
!(fieldtrip on 16th lead by Jaume Vergés)
!Important dates:
*Early-bird registration before June 30th
*Regular registration until August 10th
*Abstract submission until August 10th
The 2014 TOPO-EUROPE Meeting will be held in Barcelona at the ''CosmoCaixa Museum
of Science'' located at the slope of the Tibidabo Mountain. This 3-day conference will focus
on the links between topographic evolution, crustal and lithospheric mantle structures, and
geodynamic processes occurring at various depth- and time-scales.\\
The conference will be multidisciplinary including participants from geodynamics,
tectonics, seismology, sedimentology, geomorphology, oceanography, etc. Attendance is
open but limited to a 100 participants, and contributions (mainly posters) will be welcome
on all topics related to the evolution of the Earth's topography. Students’ attendance will be
stimulated and stimulating. A preliminary program and registration details will soon be available.
