Dear all,

please find below the announcement of a session on geofluids and 
mechanics at the GeoMod 2018 in Barcelona.

Kind regards,

Apologies for cross-posting.

Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the session "*S.6 -* *Geofluids 
and their influence on deformation*" at the upcoming *GeoMod 2018* 
international conference (*Barcelona, Spain, 2-4 October 2018*).

GeoMod is a biennial international conference dedicated to latest 
advances in numerical and analogue modelling and laboratory techniques 
in Geosciences. More information about the conference, abstract 
submission and the full session details can be found at GeoMod website 
(here <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/OzY2CoVzGQip8DBYU13IFd?domain=ub.edu>).

Please note that the abstract submission deadline is the 18th of June.

*Session: S6 - Geofluids and their influence on deformation*

*Keynote speakers: Yury Podladchikov *(University of Lausanne, 
Switzerland)**and*Chiara Cornelio *(EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland)*

*Session description:*
Fluids are intimately linked to a variety of deformation processes and 
they exert a strong control on the long-term compositional and 
structural evolution of intact and fractured sedimentary rocks. Besides 
the nowadays recognized role of fluid pressures in affecting the 
mechanical strength of rocks, it has become more apparent that fluids 
likely exert additional mechanical influence via diverse hydro-chemical 
effects. The quantification of these processes is especially of 
relevance within current research applied to safe exploration and usage 
of energy and mineral resources from the underground. This session is 
intended as a scientific platform to present and discuss advances and 
challenges in modelling of coupled physical processes in geological 
settings, it aims to stimulate new ideas for future work. We invite 
contributions that range from innovative laboratory and analogue 
experiments, analytical solutions and mathematical model applications to 
the discussion of an improved way to understand (i) fluid flow, 
permeability, fluid conductivity; (ii) electrical properties, 
conductivity, resistivity and permittivity in both real and complex 
domains; (iii) heat flow, geothermal states, thermal conductivity and 
diffusivity; (iv) transport of energy by elastic waves, velocities and 
dispersion of pressure shear and other types of elastic wave; and (v) 
fractured and intact materials. Contributions about coupling mechanism 
of THMC processes in intact and fractured reservoir rocks are of special 

*Location: Barcelona, Spain*


*Dates: 2-4 October, 2018*

*Abstract submission deadline: 18 June, 2018*
