Goldschmidt 2000: The foremost geochemical conference in 2000

Goldschmidt 2000 is sponsored by both the European Association of
Geochemistry, the Geochemical Society and the University of Oxford. The
conference will cover all the most important topics in geochemistry, and a
list of symposia already planned is given below. The conference will take
place from September 3rd to September 8th, 2000 in Oxford, UK. Goldschmidt
2000 will build on the successes of the conferences in Toulouse in 1998 and
Boston in 1999, and will provide a forum for geochemists from across the
world to meet and discuss the latest developments in their subject. Further
information on this conference will be available at the Goldschmidt 2000
website at

Oxford is Britain's oldest University and is the beautiful and historic
heart of a diverse and ancient city. From the founding of the first
Colleges in the thirteenth century, Oxford established itself as a centre
of academic excellence. The conference will be based around the Oxford
University Museum and delegates to Goldschmidt 2000 will be accommodated in
Christchurch, Keble, St Anne's and St. Hugh's Colleges. Oxford is less than
an hour from London's Heathrow Airport, and is extremely well served by
motorways and rail. It is set in the beautiful Cotswold countryside, and is
within easy reach of the Shakespearian theatres of Stratford-upon-Avon.
