The meeting will comprise invited review talks, contributed student-presented talks and end with a panel discussion about the big, unsolved questions in deep Earth research. Additionally we will have the opportunity for poster presentations over an extended lunch. This meeting will help to identify important topics in deep Earth research to which the UK SEDI community might contribute and we hope to foster new collaborations between UK and international deep Earth researchers.  Abstracts either for student talks or posters on any SEDI-related theme are welcome; details regarding submission will be announced soon.Tea and coffee will be available from 10:00 and again after the meeting at 15:30.
