Prague Successfully Hosts Major Event In The Geochemistry Field

From 14 to 19 August, the Prague Congress Centre hosted the major event in the geochemistry field – the Goldschmidt Conference 2011. One of the most significant international events held in the Czech capital this year, the conference, named ‘Earth, Life and Fire’, brought together scientists from around the world to discuss issues in the field of the evolution of the Earth, environmental chemistry and the geochemistry of resources.

The Congress Centre was the venue of 20 parallel scientific sessions and plenaries. This year a full day special session was devoted to the Fukushima nuclear accident and its implications, which was organised together with the Geochemical Society of Japan.

The Goldschmidt Conference is held annually, alternating between North America and Europe. After previous conferences in Cologne, Germany (2007), Vancouver, Canada (2008), Davos, Switzerland (2009) and Knoxville, USA (2010), Prague has observed the largest ever Goldschmidt conference with more than 3000 registered delegates. The next conferences will be held in Montreal, Canada (2012) and Florence, Italy (2013).
