This year, 2022, the Goldschmidt conference moves to Hawaii! This is really terrific! As a geologist, Hawaii has been a dream place for me to visit and explore: it just has breathtaking sceneries and has been the research "hotspot" due to the presence of Hawaii hotspot beneath the islands.
The themes and sessions of Goldschmidt 2022 cover various aspects of Earth and planetary sciences. In particular, sessions regarding in-situ technical development, mineral and melt chemistry in Earth’s components, and magmatism (volcanism) and metamorphism during lithosphere (mantle and crust) formation and evolution are closely related with my PhD projects and are all quite appealing. It will be a fantastic conference to attend!
As a contribution to this exciting conference, we several conveners propose a session geared towards "oceanic crust formation", entitled "The Formation, Dynamics, and Influence of Magmatic Systems in the Oceanic Crust". Check it out via the link: https://conf.goldschmidt.info/goldschmidt/2022/meetingapp.cgi/Symposium/288. This session has attracted a significant number of abstract submissions. Really looking forward to the conference in July 10-15!
