The 2014 TOPO-EUROPE Meeting will be held in Barcelona at the CosmoCaixa Museum of Science located at the slope of the Tibidabo Mountain. This 3-day conference plus one-day optional field-trip will focus on topics linking topography and landscape evolution with crust and lithosphere mantle structures and geodynamic processes occurring at different depth-and-time-scales.

The conference will be multidisciplinary including participants from geodynamics, tectonics, seismology, sedimentology, geomorphology and oceanography.  Oral presentations are mostly by invitation. Attendance is open and poster submissions are welcome on all topics related to the evolution of the Earth's topografy. The size of the poster is 135*95cm-landscape.

Preliminary program:
Session 1.- Resolving the deep Earth: The sublithospheric contribution to topography
Session 2.- Lithospheric dynamics.
Session 3.- Paleotopography, sea-level and surface processes
Session 4.- Source-Sink: surface mass transport and the sedimentary basin record
Session 5.- Messinian salinity crisis: a natural laboratory for deep-surface interactions
Session 6.- TopoMod-ITN final meeting
