Goldschmidt 2018 Pop-Up Talks event


Are you attending Goldschmidt 2018 in Boston, USA? If so, do you feel passionate about your research and want to tell us about it? Sign up for an exciting Pop Up Talks event at Goldschmidt that is open to anyone who wants to share their experience as a geochemist. Please note this is NOT meant to be a place to give a science talk that would fit into an existing science session.

Rather you are invited to give a brief, 5-minute presentation in the style of a TED or ‘3-Minute Thesis’ talk – that explains any aspect of your work or life as a scientist in an engaging way. These talks will be free of jargon, as they are meant to be entertaining and engaging. Talks can be about any aspect of geochemistry that you are passionate about, whether it be your latest data, your international travels, an outreach program you participated in, or the challenges of lab work or life as a scientist. Past talks have included: poetry about Fe, Mn, and O, performed comedy routines about mass spectrometry, and detailed the woes of e-mail. Amidst full days of formal, jargon-dense scientific talks, the Pop Up Talk series is meant to be a fun, community-building experience for those in attendance.

If you are interested in participating in this exciting event, please send us an email with the title of your talk and how you would like to present it to before the 3rd August.

This will allow us to schedule the necessary time and space. Due to potential limitations, acceptance will be on a first-come-first-served basis. We will contact you with more information once the deadline has passed.
