EAG and Geochemical Society, GS

Securing the Goldschmidt Conference Future. The Goldschmidt conference provides the pre-eminent international forum to communicate new research and innovations in geochemistry, attracting international press, funding bodies and industry. The responsibility for the organization and planning falls onto the EAG or the Geochemical Society (GS), co-owners of the meeting, on alternate years. At the Sacramento Goldschmidt meeting in June 2014, the EAG and the GS signed a Memorandum of Understanding which provides the foundations for the governance and trademark protection of the meeting. The MoU ensures more efficient communication between societies, more security and more coherence between meetings. This allows both societies to plan further into the future and continue to improve the quality of the meeting for our geochemical community.
