In 2017, the European Association of Geochemistry proudly co-sponsors:
22-23 April 2017, Vienna, Austria (just before the 2017 EGU General Assembly)
This two-day short course will involve a series of lectures and practicals from leaders in the scientific fields of magmatic and metamorphic petrology and geochronology.
10 grants are offered by the European Association of Geochemistry to reduce the registration fees to 25 Euros. Apply for support before 3 February.
How can EAG members organising short courses or small conferences request sponsorship?
Short courses or small conferences should have at least 10 participants and focus on special topics or techniques from the broad field of geochemistry. The short courses or small conferences should be based in Europe. The event can be organised in conjunction with a Goldschmidt conference in Europe. EAG sponsorship supports students attending, up to €200 per student.
Following the short course or small conference, sponsored students should produce a one-page report on their experience. Some of those reports will be published on the EAG Blog.
Sponsorship requests should be addressed to Marie-Aude Hulshoff, EAG Business Office Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
- a brief description of the goals of the short course or small conference
- a proposed schedule
- a list of suggested presenters
- a preliminary budget plan
- information regarding the location and infrastructure
- EAG membership number of the organiser
