News from the EAG
Preparations for the 26th Goldschmidt conference, which will be held in Yokohama from 26 June to 1 July, are now well underway and abstract submission and registration are now open. Abstract deadline is 26 February and Early Registration deadline is 26 April.
Several events for Early Career Scientists will be proposed, as well as an exciting range of social events, workshops and field trips. Finally, Goldschmidt needs student helpers (volunteers receive waived registration and an honorarium) so if interested, apply online before 26 February.

Professor Shogo Tachibana of Hokkaido University was selected by the Geochemical Society and EAG to deliver the 2016 Paul W. Gast Lecture during the Goldschmidt Conference in Yokohama, Japan. The lecture is awarded to a mid-career scientist for outstanding contributions to geochemistry. Professor Tachibana studies the origin and evolution of the solar system and the chemical diversity within planets.
