The second IGCP 649 workshop was held on 14th-20th May 2016 in Agros-Cyprus. It was organized by IGCP 649 Project and the Geological Survey Department of Cyprus Agros-Cyprus. There were more than 50 participations from 10 countries who presented 12 talks during the conference day. These presentations related to the ophiolites and podiform chromitites from Albania, Egypt and China. 

The five days field trip focused on ophiolites in the Troodos. It was guided by Professor Julian Pearce, who studies in this area for a long time. This field trip provided an opportunity for participants to see the world-famous, Tethyan Troodos ophiolite.

Thanks again to everyone who participated this year. We hope to see you all in Cuba next year.
