I draw to your attention sessions on migmatites 
and granites and related high-grade metamorphic 
rocks at the 2008 GAC-MAC meeting in Quebec City and at the 33rd IGC in Oslo


1. Short Course and a Special Session on 
Migmatites at the GAC-MAC meeting in Quebec City, 24 to 28 May 2008.

Short Course: CI4 WORKING WITH MIGMATITES
Organisers: E.W. Sawyer (U. Quebec at Chicoutimi) 
and Mike Brown (University of Maryland)
When: 24 and 25th. May 2008, the two days before the conference
The short course will be presented by: Marian 
Holness, Mike Brown, Bernardo Cesare, Ed. Sawyer, Gary Solar and Richard White.

Special Session: SS8 NEW ADVANCES IN MIGMATITES
Organised by: Ed Sawyer and Mike Brown
This special session will provide a forum for 
researchers to present their new results from 
migmatites and crustal melting. Keynote talks 
will be given by Dr. Roberto Weinberg (Monash U.) 
and Dr. Karel Schulmann (U. Strasbourg) and 
invited speakers include Dr. Bernardo Cesare (U. 
Padova), Dr. Marian Holness (U. Cambridge) and Dr. Richard White (U. Mainz).
