The next «International Eclogite Conference» (IEC 2022) will take place in Lyon on 11-13 July. The IEC takes place this year in France in honor of the bicentenary of the creation of the word «eclogite» by René-Just Haüy in 1822

On this occasion, a pre-conference excursion will take place in the Armoricain massif (from 7 to 9 July). It will be led by G. Godard (IPGP) and P. Yamato (Rennes Geosciences) who will guide about thirty researchers from around the world (Brazil, Korea, France, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Spain, Japan, United Kingdom, United States) to admire the blue schists and the eclogites of the Armorican massif.
