DRT2011 in Oviedo (and cider, chorizo, fabada...)

As I wrote some months ago, this year's DRT meeting will take place at the end of August/beginning of September in Oviedo, capital city of Asturias (Spain). University of Oviedo organise this time the biannual reunion dedicated to deformation processes at different scales and, besides a great meeting with very interesting keynote talks, they also offer a pre- and post- fieldtrips that you shouldn't miss.
From today, July 7th to 31st, the normal registration fee is just 200€, and if you decide, and you should, register for the fieldtrips and the conference dinner, the total amount would be 595€.
You can find more information in their website: http://www.geol.uniovi.es/drt2011/Home.html
Not convinced by the talks, fieldtrips to the Variscan foreland fold and thrust belt and to the hinterland of the orogen? Not convinced by the value for money of the conference?

Then, perhaps you should go in order to try sidra (Asturian cider),

the chorizo,

and fabada! (and many, many, many more dishes that you will love!)
Not yet convinced??? Then take a look to the pictures of the YORSGET meeting organised also by the Department of Geology of University of Oviedo: http://www.unioviedo.es/YORSGET/FOTOS-CONGRESO/PHOTOGALLERIES.htm

(And yes, I miss my homeland and I will be there :-) )

Great site and a great topic as well I really get amazed to read this. It's really good. I like viewing web sites which comprehend the price of delivering the excellent useful resource free of charge.
