Joint European Stable Isotope Users group Meeting. JESIUM - 30th August-3rd
September 2004, VIC, Vienna, Austria.

Call for abstracts. Deadline March 30th 2004.

On-line registration only.

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together a broad range of stable
isotope scientists from all over Europe, to encourage communication across
disciplines and country boundaries.

It will provide an opportunity to discuss theoretical and methodological
difficulties and to exchange techniques and ideas, a chance to reflect on
our successes and failures. This will be done through oral and poster
presentations, practical demonstrations, as well as informal discussions and

The emphasis will be on practicalities. We will have a dedicated session to
the presentation of interesting practical techniques, this will take place
in the laboratory and we will have a number of stations where people can
demonstrate their techniques, either in real time, with video or with a
computer. There will be a prize for the best gadget, gizmo (device which has
made the work a lot easier) or novel approach presented. We would
particularly like to encourage younger scientists to present their work and
thus there will also be a prize for the best presentation from someone under
35 years of age.

The goal of the meeting is to encourage free and open exchange of ideas to
promote stable isotope science for the common good...

Scientific Programme

It is envisaged that there will be one keynote speaker per session and 5
shorter presentations; there will also be poster and demonstration sessions.
The demonstration session will be on Thursday afternoon followed by an
evening in the Heuriger. There will exhibitions from the leading companies
in the stable isotope field.

On the Friday there will be the opportunity to visit one of the many stable
isotope laboratories of Vienna. Soil Science Unit, IAEA Seibersdorf, IAEA,
Isotope Hydrology Laboratory, Vienna, Austrian Research Centre Seibersdorf
or the University of Vienna.

Selected papers presented, will be published in Rapid Communications in Mass
Spectrometry and Isotopes in Environment and Health Studies.


We would like to announce the availability of  financial support for
Students-Post Docs who will be presenting either a poster, demonstration or
talk. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors.

There are three options of financial support available, please indicate
which option you will be applying for and state which session you want to
present in. If you chose option B please state who your full paying
"supervisor" is.

*       Option A: We will provide up to 300 Euro for travel expenses to
attend the meeting.
*       Option B: On registration of a full paying "supervisor" you will
receive one free student registration.
*       Option C: We will provide top up (300 Euro max) for those students
that have found some money, but not all to attend.

Please not there is a limit of 15 bursaries in total available ( 2 per
session +1)
All receipts and documentation will be required and checked.

This will be on a first come first serve basis and at the discretion of the
organising committee, based on the quality of your abstract submission.
We would particularly like to encourage young scientists from  Eastern
Europe to participate in the meeting. Remember ! If you don't buy a ticket
you don't win the raffle.!!!. Send requests to the JESIUM email

International Symposium on Quality Assurance for Analytical Methods in
Isotope Hydrology

The symposium will feature reviews on and examples of quality assurance for
analytical techniques used in the field of isotope hydrology. Papers are
invited on all aspects of analytical techniques and laboratory quality
systems, aiming at the production of high quality data in day to day routine
at isotope hydrology laboratories. Techniques considered are stable isotopes
of light elements, radioactive isotopes at environmental level, chemical and
isotopic tracers. Topics include calibration of measurements, quality
control, statistical evaluation, uncertainty budget, best laboratory
practises, precision and accuracy, traceability, laboratory information
management, quality systems, new analytical techniques, sampling techniques,
reference materials, interlaboratory comparisons, proficiency tests.
