There are just a few days left to send your nomination for the honorary title of GS/EAG Geochemical Fellows, recognizing major contributions to the field of geochemistry. Please note the nomination deadline for all other EAG Awards, Houtermans Award, Science Innovation Award and Urey Award, is 15 November.
Deadlines coming up
The organizing teams have proposed over 100 sessions within 24 themes however we welcome suggestions for additional sessions via the session suggestion form until 22 October. We also invite proposals for workshops to take place immediately before or after the conference.
The EAG started a Distinguished Lecture Program last year, aiming to introduce and motivate scientists located in under-represented regions of the world to emerging research areas in geochemistry. Each year, a lecturer is selected based on a combination of outstanding research contributions to geochemistry and the ability to clearly communicate these contributions. We are happy to announce that Tim Elliott, whose research focuses on the chemical evolution of the Earth, has been selected as the Distinguished Lecturer 2012 and will be visiting universities in Poland, Bulgaria and Romania next month.
We are excited to announce that the latest issue of Geochemical Perspectives, Mineral-Aqueous Solution Interfaces and Their Impact on the Environment, written by Gordon E. Brown, Jr. and Georges Calas is now available online. This comprehensive Perspective article is longer than usual and therefore covers both the October 2012 and January 2013 issues. The printed copies will be on their way to subscribers within a few days.
