The Deformation Mechanisms, Rheology and Tectonics (DRT) conference is a biennial international meeting that has been running for 40 years, organised and hosted by academic staff from different European universities. DRT is one of the main world forums for presenting and discussing research in the fields of rock deformation, structural geology, rheology, tectonics, microstructures, rock physics and interactions between deformation and metamorphic/diagenetic reactions.

DRT 2017 will be hosted at the Eden Court Theatre in Inverness (Scotland), and it is organised by the Tectonics group of the University of Aberdeen. This 21st edition will keep the tradition of DRT focusing on the study of the deformation behaviour, rheology of minerals, rocks and materials, and tectonics. At the same time, we would like to emphasize discussions on the geophysical expression of deformation processes, and will include a component of applied structural geology.

Looking forward to seeing you in Inverness!
