For nearly 30 years, the Geoanalysis series of conferences have met a worldwide demand for an international conference devoted specifically to developments in analytical geochemistry and their application, supporting the professional needs of those involved in the analysis of geological and environmental materials. The philosophy of Geoanalysis conferences is to provide an intimate gathering of ca. 200 delegates with an all-inclusive programme of scientific and cultural activities, with accommodation situated close to the conference centre so that opportunities for networking are maximised.
The International Association of Geoanalysts (IAG) is the primary supporter of the Geoanalysis conferences, which are held every three years. From the beginning, Geoanalysis conferences have encouraged the participation of younger scientists by offering bursaries and providing low cost accommodation.
Geoanalysis2021 will be an important forum for the exchange of knowledge in areas such as:
Automated Analytical methods
Imaging with elements and Isotopes
