Early Career Events
The Early career event program provides opportunities for less senior scientists to network and learn from volunteers from the community.
These events are all being planned by our exhibitors. To find out more information, visit them on their booths.
Pre- and post-conference field trips
Isotope Ratio Measurements, Metrology, and the SI
BOOKING FOR THIS WORKSHOP CLOSED ON 12 JULY. Isotopic reference materials (iRMs) connect us, whether you are adding data to the canon of paleoenvironmental reconstruction, doing the first measurements in a non-traditional isotope system or seeking the oldest surviving crustal artefacts. Please join us for a workshop on the status of iRMs and how to improve them. The program will include invited lectures from a wide variety of disciplines and techniques such as: non-traditional isotopes, forensics, geochronology, atmospheric sciences, laser ablation, et cetera. Experts will discuss status of measurements in their field, the iRMs that support their work, and anticipated future iRM and instrumentation needs. With the redefinition of the kilogram and the mole taking place in 2018, this is the perfect time and venue to increase the scientific understanding and cooperation between metrologists and bio/geochemists. Expected outcomes from this workshop will be a better understanding of the crucial role iRMs play in our science as well as a deeper insight into the very real diversity of needs within the iRM community. Participants will have the opportunity to voice their concerns in characterizing the needs of the isotope ratio measurement community and drafting potential solutions. Brought to you by the Isotopic Reference Materials Working Group.
