Biomarkers and Molecular isotopes (Osaka, Japan, July 4-5, 2016)

International workshop of Organic Geochemistry
“Biomarkers and Molecular isotopes”
Osaka, Japan during July 4 and 5, 2016.
This workshop will be held after Goldschmidt 2016 in Yokohama (June 26-Jul 1), as its post-workshop.
Also the Goldschmidt homepage has a link to our workshop;
This workshop aims to promote international innovative collaboration in Organic Geochemistry through exchanging among the sub-topics in this field. Possible topics include, but not limited to; (1) Biomarkers and Energy Resources, (2) Deep Biosphere, (3) Paleoclimate and Paleoenvironment, (4) Ecology, (5) Microbiology, (6) Environmental dynamics, (7) Organics-Mineral interactions, (8) Developing analytical techniques, and (9) Astrobiology, etc.
It will be the first time for the Japanese Organic Geochemistry community to organize an international workshop, and thus the creation of a new, global interactions between scientists beyond the local community will be expected.
Minoo Kanko Hotel is located next to the Meiji Forest Mino quasi-national park that has a forested valley and water fall in a old small town (You can experience a different atmosphere from Yokohama!). The area is also a convenient location to access the downtown Osaka (e.g., Osaka castle) by train in 45 min and also Kyoto and Nara in 60-90 min.
* Early Registration deadline: April 14, 2016
* Abstract deadline: April 28, 2016
We would be grateful if you inform your colleagues about the post-workshop.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Yokohama & Osaka in June-July!
