An International Conference for Geochemistry

organised by
the European Association for Geochemistry and the Geochemical Society

This page gives the latest information about the conference.

The programme for Goldschmidt 2000 is now available both as a html file and as a pdf file.

The abstract volume for Goldschmidt 2000 will be provided to delegates on CD in Adobe's pdf format. Delegates who wish to read or print abstracts before the start of the conference may access the abstract volume on this website, either from the author index allowing each individual paper to be downloaded, or by downloading the entire abstract volume which will yield the whole volume as a single file which might take a significant time to download, and will require at least 20Mb of RAM to view.

Goldschmidt 2000 is proving to be a popular conference, with more than 1000 registrations already received. The range and quality of the abstracts submitted ensure that Goldschmidt 2000 will be among the most important Earth Science conferences this year. In addition to the 13 themed symposia, there will be lectures by the medallists of the Geochemical Society and the European Association for Geochemistry.

The conference is being managed for the organising committee by Cambridge Publications .

On Site registration will take place in the Department of Zoology, South Parks Road, Oxford between 2pm and 6pm on Sunday September 3rd, and from 9-12 and 2-4 on Monday September 4th, Tuesday September 5th, and Thursday September 7th.

Accommodation bookings for Goldschmidt 2000 have now closed, and no further bookings can be accepted. However, for those who still need to book accommodation we have made an arrangement with St Hugh's College for delegates to book directly with them. Please use the following link to the form for booking accommodation at St Hugh's. Alternatively you could use the link provided to hotels in Oxford to make your own arrangement with a local hotel.

The centre of Oxford was designed for horses and the occasional carriage and is not well suited to cars as parking space is extremely limited. We strongly recommend that delegates plan to come to Oxford by train or by coach as these services are both rapid and frequent. Oxford is less than an hour from London by train, and this service operates every 30 minutes during the day. There are also direct coach services between Oxford and the London Airports.

Conferences of interest:
We shall be making links from the Goldschmidt 2000 home page to other conferences that may be of interest to delegates.
