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.

BOOKING FOR THIS WORKSHOP CLOSED ON 12 JULY. More and more anomalous enrichments of rare elements such as Ga, Li, Ge, Nb (Ta)-Ree, Th-U, Rb-Cs-Sc, and Au in coal were found around the world coal deposits. In some case, it can reach levels equal to or even higher than their concentrations in many conventional types of respective ores. Workshop on rare trace elements deposit associated with coal will cover on some basic information and new developments, such as: the definition of this new deposit, the distribution of this deposit around the world, the concentration, occurrence, enrichment mechanism of rare elements in coal. And some case, significant enrichments of rare elements associated with coal deposit in China, Russia, India, and so on will be detailed explanation. Moreover, update on extract technologies of valuable elements from coal ashes will be introduced. The workshop is oriented to PhD students, postdocs and research scientists. We hope that the workshop will help developing the key future research direction on geochemistry of rare elements in coal.
