Goldschmidt2017, the world's major geochemistry congress, is due to take place in Paris, France, from August 13th-18th, 2017. More than 3600 abstracts are expected, with up to 4000 attendees. Journalists are welcome to attend.

Previous Goldschmidt conferences have brought several headline-making stories, which were extensively reported by the international press (e.g. BBC, La Stampa, CBS, New York Times, AFP, etc.).

This year we anticipate more headline-making stories about the science behind geochemistry, and how this affects the real world.

The 2017 conference will feature sessions on a variety of newsworthy topics, including:

  • Making of Planets (exoplanet exploration and impacts)
  • Geobiology of the Past (mass extinction, fossils, origin of life)
  • Energy Resources for Society
  • Mineral Resources for Society
