Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce for the second time the STUDIUM CONFERENCE 
dedicated to "*Hydrogen Isotopes as Environmental Recorders*" that will 
be held in *Orléans *(France) by *15-16 September 2011*.

Please note that *abstracts *for this unique and productive gathering 
must be submitted by *June 1, 2011*.

The objective of this unique international venue is to assess and 
improve environmental information obtained from stable hydrogen isotopic 
analyses of organic compounds and associated waters. Oral presentations 
will consist of invited speakers. Additional knowledge will be shared 
via posters that all participants are encouraged to present. A special 
issue of research papers in Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta will be an 
outgrowth of the conference. All participants are invited to submit 
articles for this issue that will first undergo normal peer-review 
procedures.

Main topics :
- Evolution of the hydrological cycle through space and time
- Environmental controls on the distribution of hydrogen isotopes in 
surface and groundwaters
- Stable hydrogen isotopes in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum
- Fractionation of hydrogen isotopes during biosynthesis
- Environmental and biological inferences from D/H in organic molecules
- Persistence of compound-specific D/H information through time and space
- Synthesis and on to future directions

Additional information is available on the conference website:

Please forward this announcement to any person interested.

Best regards,
