Dear List Members,
We are pleased to announce that the annual Symposium of the Benelux Association of Stable Isotopes Scientist (BASIS) will be hosted by University of Liège (Belgium) on 19 and 20 April (http://www.basis-online.eu/en/en-basis-symposium-2018/).
Dead line extension: 9 February
We will welcome contributions from scientists coming from all disciplines (archeology, ecology, forensics, medical science, biochemistry, geochemistry, hydrology, climate science, and more), and spanning all career stages. Whether you’re a stable isotope newbie or have decades of experience in your field, come join us and discuss your latest research results!
For the 2018 symposium, we’ll have the privilege to welcome David Amouroux, who will give an exciting invited lecture about the use of mercury stable isotopes in environmental sciences.
Moreover, the symposium will provide an opportunity for scientists to meet professionals involved in development of stable isotope analytical gear. We will start the meeting on Thursday morning April 19th , with a technical session organized by our industrial partners (Thermo, Elementar, Air Liquide, Sercon and Los Gatos). If you’re considering buying a new setup and need help to choose which one, if you have exciting ideas about new methods that you would like to develop, or if you simply need advice about how to get the best out of your machine, the BASIS Symposium is the right place for you.
Hoping to discuss stable isotopes with you around a (or more) local beer,
Gilles Lepoint & Loïc Michel (local conveners)
for the BASIS Board
