Deep Carbon Science in the Context of Geologic Time
Location: Smithfield, RI, US (map)
3rd European Mantle Workshop
Location: Pavia, Italy (map)
The 3rd European Mantle Workshop aims at providing a framework of advanced knowledge on the evolution of the Earth’s mantle. The workshop is mainly intended to discuss the mantle beneath Europe and neighboring areas; presentations from other parts of the world are welcome.

2018 CIDER Summer Program
Location: Santa Barbara, CA, USA (map)
The CIDER 2018 summer program returns to the theme of the original CIDER Program on Relating Geophysical and Geochemical Heterogeneity in the Deep Earth. Significant advances and discoveries since 2004 motivate a return to this long-standing question.

RiMG Short Course: High-Temperature Gas Solid Reactions in Earth and Planetary Processes
Location: Boston, MA, USA (map)
Gas mixtures play a crucial role in distributing elements between different parts of Earth and planet-forming systems over a range of settings and temperatures. Despite the fundamental role of gases in geochemical cycles, the study of gas-solid interactions at high temperature is an emerging field in earth sciences. Currently, this area of research is spread between volcanology, planetary science, economic geology, environmental science, chemical engineering, chemistry, and metallurgy. The aim of this short course is to share the different approaches in this rapidly developing area. We will cover experimental work; modelling approaches; atom-scale reaction mechanisms; thermochemical and kinetic investigations; observations from active volcanic systems; and evidence for these reactions in the solar system and beyond.

NASA's 3rd Comparative Climatology of Terrestrial Planets (CCTP-3) From Stars to Surfaces
Location: Houston, TX, USA (map)
CCTP-3 will promote cross-disciplinary conversation on climate processes at work on terrestrial planets both within our solar system and in extrasolar systems. For the purpose of this conference, terrestrial climate is a broad term, intended to include the climates of Earth, Mars, and Venus as well as the climates of Titan and Pluto. CCTP-3 also covers exoplanets similar to Earth, Mars, Venus, Titan, or Pluto.Download iCal
Magmatism of the Earth and related strategic metal deposits
Location: Moscow, Russia (map)
The Conference will be focused on the following topics:
- Geochemistry, petrology and ore-potential of alkaline and related mafic and granitic magmatism.
- Resources of critical metals in magmatic complexes in various geodynamic settings.
- Petrology, geochemistry and metallogeny of oceanic magmatism.
- Mantle sources and processes controlling genesis of ore-producing magmas.
- Geochemical characteristics and metallogeny of subduction- and collision-related magmatism.
