Computer programs

We recommend to all participants to bring their own laptops MAC or PC for the workshop. The tutorials requiring special software solutions are listed below.

  • The Bingo-Antidote tutorial will require either MATLAB (7.5 release R2007b or more recent releases) or its free alternative OCTAVE (version 4.4 or more recent: Windows binaries; Octave for macOS).
  • Compiled versions of Theriak-Domino (macOS and Windows) will be provided to the participants


The participants are strongly encouraged to bring images of their own sample and/or thin sections if they want to get feedbacks from any of our speakers. The following aspects will be discussed during the tutorials:

  • Preparing an adapted strategy for accessory mineral analysis
  • Assessing the presence of melt inclusions
  • Modelling of complex samples including local equilibria and open systems

A few microscopes will accessible throughout the workshop and many during the poster session on Wednesday.
