Our workshop program provides training and teaching in topics across geochemistry and related fields. We are currently liaising with the workshop organisers to ascertain if any workshops can become virtual. Any updates will be added to this page.

Goldschmidt2020: Global Virtual Conference
(Updated on April 17, 2020)
Each year, the Goldschmidt Conference travels to a part of the world to bring together the geochemical community to share the latest developments in the field as well as supporting, training and encouraging colleagues at the start their careers. Goldschmidt2020 will be the 30th conference in the series.
The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the GS and EAG have determined that the conference cannot be held as scheduled in Honolulu. Instead, Goldschmidt2020 will become the first virtual edition of the conference. Read more about plans for the virtual conference here
With travel costs and visa requirements removed, we hope that this year’s conference will be accessible to more people than ever. The conference will continue to highlight the contributions to the field resulting from scientific observations made in Hawai‘i and Oceania.
While a virtual meeting can never entirely replace the networking capacity of a standard meeting, there will be many opportunities to connect with your colleagues virtually, share and discuss new work, and get involved with the programs for early career researchers at the virtual event.
All those who have already registered for the standard meeting have been automatically registered for the virtual experience. They have been contacted directly with regards to reimbursement aligned with the new, reduced pricing structure. Social event, workshop, field trip, childcare and lunch box fees will be refunded automatically.
Details of how events will be presented are still to be confirmed and we will be in touch with colleagues affected when we can provide full instructions for the next steps. We appreciate your patience as we adapt to these very challenging times.
