IUGS-CGGB 2021 Workshop on:  Extracting, visualising and interpreting structure in geochemical data through compositional data analysis (CoDA)

The workshop material will be found in the Workshop web page



As the World is still suffering from the Covid-19 pandemic only a few conferences will be posted on this web-page.  All members of the IUGS Commission will be informed by E-mail about pending conferences during 2023.


2023:  38th International Conference on Geochemistry and Health (SEGH2023)

The Society of Environmental Geochemistry and Health is organising its 38th International Conference on Geochemistry and Health in Athens, the capital of the Hellenic Republic, between the 2nd and 6th of July 2023 (


IMPORTANT:  The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to the 31st of March 2023 (


The IUGS Commission on Global Geochemical Baselines is organising and sponsoring a two-day preconference workshop on Saturday and Sunday, 1st and 2nd of July 2023.  The theme of the workshop is "Applied geochemical methods described in the International Union of Geological Sciences Manual of Standard Methods for Establishing the Global Geochemical Reference Network" (  The first day (Saturday, 1st July 2023) will be devoted to classroom lectures, and the second day (Sunday, 2nd July 2023) to the demonstration in the field the methods of sampling stream water, active stream sediment, residual soil, overbank and floodplain sediment, and rock.


The course level will be for geoscience graduate students, early career researchers and professional applied geochemists, who wish to broaden their knowledge of well-tested geochemical methods and techniques.



2023:  Goldschmidt 2023 conference

The IUGS Commission of Global Geochemical Baselines in collaboration with a number of Universities led by Professor Stefano Albanese (University of Naples Federico II), a Commission member, organised a session under Theme 12: Environmental geochemistry and human health with the title "12g - Novel geochemical and mapping methods at global to local scales with applications in environmental sciences, food safety, ecology, archeology and paleontology".


Goldschmidt 2023 is being held in Lyon (France) from the 9th to the 14th of July 2023.


The deadline for abstract submission is the 1st of March 2023 (




2024:  4th Arthur Darnley Symposium
