Welcome to the XV International Workshop on Numerical Modelling of Mantle and Lithosphere Dynamics! The workshop was initiated in 1987 in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, Germany, and has been followed by meetings every two years in various European countries. The last workshops were held in Oleron, France (2015), in Hønefoss, Norway (2013) and in Gross Doelln, Germany (2011).
The 2017 workshop will be held at a lakeside hotel near Putten, The Netherlands. The meeting is co-sponsored by the Utrecht University, the Oslo University Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED), the European Geological Union (EGU) and the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG). This workshop is part of the EGU conference series.
