We are getting close to the 11th International Conference on the Application of Stable Isotopes to Ecological Studies (IsoEcol 2018) which will be held at the end of this month in Viņa del Mar, Chile (see<>). We have ca. 250 oral and poster presentations and expect between 250 and 300 delegates to attend.

As this date draws near, our thoughts turn to the year 2020 and just where the 12th IsoEcol will be held... As such, we have published a call for potential hosts/venues (

Interested parties should send an email to [log in to unmask] in the first instance, letting us know the nominated organiser(s) and proposed location. Nominations are requested before 23 July 2018.

Groups will be invited to give a short presentation (2-3 mins) on their proposal during IsoEcol 2018 (date/time to be decided). If more than one proposal is submitted, an ad hoc committee made up of past and present organisers present at the meeting will decide the venue for IsoEcol 2020 by vote. The decision will be announced during the closing ceremony of IsoEcol 2018.

All the best and hope to see you in Chile in 2018 and who knows where in 2020
