Volunteer to organize an online social event

The Organizing Committee is seeking enthusiastic and proactive volunteers to organize online social or networking events at Goldschmidt2023. If you have an idea for an online event that you would be willing to lead, please send a short email outlining your proposal to

Science workshops

You can also explore the list of 20 pre-conference science workshops, covering a wide range of topics and including in-person, hybrid and fully online events. Registration will open in January.

Early career workshops

To make the conference even more valuable for our early career delegates, several in-person and hybrid workshops will take place on Sunday 9 July as well as at lunchtime throughout the week. Registration will open in January but start browsing the program now as some events will have a limited number of places available.

Mentor Program: Your help is needed!

The Mentor Program is very important to help early career delegates navigate the conference and we usually have many more mentees than mentors. Therefore, we are asking experienced delegates who plan to attend the conference in-person or remotely to inform us of their intent to be a mentor. Find out more about the program and express your intent.

Changes in the EAG Council

Catherine Chauvel has started her two-year term as EAG President. In December, the EAG Council elected Dan Frost as Vice-President, and Martin Whitehouse and Karen Hudson-Edwards as co-chairs for the Goldschmidt2025 Organizing and Science Committees. We also welcome Raúl Fonseca and Silke Merchel, who were elected by EAG members in the council elections last autumn.

We  would like to thank departing Past-President Sigurður Gíslason, and councillors Lena Alakangas, Nadia Malaspina and Jill Sutton, for their important contributions to the EAG during their time on the council. View the 2023 EAG Council
