  6th International Clumped Isotope Workshop 2017

Thursday 10 August 2017 to Saturday 12 August 2017
Paris, France.


The 6th International Clumped Isotopes Workshop will be held in the institut de physique du globe de Paris (IPGP) right before the 2017 Goldschmidt conference, from Thursday, August 10th to Saturday, August 12th 2017.


The event is co-organized by the institut de physique du globe de Paris (IPGP) and the laboratoire des sciences du climat et de l'environnement (LSCE).


For practical reasons, the workshop will be limited to a maximum of 120 attendees.


Workshop goals

The aims of the workshop are to bring together current and aspiring practitioners of clumped isotope measurements, to share practical knowledge and methodologies, to present new technical advances, and to discuss best practices, particularly in terms of data reporting, standardization and comparison of measurements from different groups. Students are encouraged to participate.


All five past workshops have produced important methodological advances, thanks to very open discussions and frank exchanges of ideas. We hope that the 2017 meeting is as successful, and look forward to seeing you all in Paris.


Temporary program

  • August 9 (evening): ice breaker
  • August 10 and 11: presentation and discussions around selected themes
  • August 12 (morning): discussions and wrap-up comments


The final program will be based on the abstract submitted. However note that we are already planning to organize presentations and discussions around themes including the following aspects of the clumped isotopes methodological and interpretational frameworks:


  • Data processing
  • Inter-lab standardization and data reporting
  • Interpreting △47 values in carbonates
  • Signal preservation
  • Calibration
  • Non-equilibrium processes
  • Clumped isotopes in atmospheric CO2 and other molecules
  • Instrumental advances

Note that we will prioritize non-application studies with a particular focus on discussing the nuts and bolts of the technique (since application studies will have the possibility to be presented at the broader audience Goldschmidt conference).


Important dates and deadlines

Registration deadline: April 15

Abstract deadline: April 15 (note that only one abstract will be accepted by presenter)



Science comitee

Kristin Bergmann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Thomas Roeckmann (Utrecht University) will join the local organization comitee.
