This is an old revision of the document!
I am happy to announce the creation of the iDeal group (Isotopologues in Diagenetic Environments And the Lithosphere). The iDeal group is a focused group with a broad range of interests:
The creation of the group is a direct result of our workshop in London last month, where it was decided that such a group would be useful. You can join the group by going to its dedicated home page and signing up (www.carbonateresearch.com/ideal).
Once you are logged in, you have access to a dedicated forum to discuss any topics related to applying clumped isotopes to diagenetic or lithospheric problems, as well as a chat and a file sharing system.
Everyone is welcome to join, whether you currently work on diagenesis or not. The idea is to create a forum to exchange knowledge, to foster collaborations and to effectively coordinate calibration efforts between labs (i.e. different mineralogies, temperature ranges, etc…). We also would like to foster discussion between academics and industry representatives.
Hope to see you all very soon on the iDeal forum!
The 3rd International Workshop on Clumped Isotopes on January 10-11, 2013 at Harvard University.
The study of multiply-substituted isotopologues (or clumped isotopes) is a growing field within Earth sciences and geochemistry. To date, most research has focused on either clumping in carbon dioxide or carbonate minerals with applications to atmospheric budgets, paleothermometry and diagenesis. But, there are also a series of new applications and discoveries.
As we meet for the 3rd International Workshop on Clumped Isotopes we expect to discuss the existing carbonate and CO2 clumped isotope work as well as clumping in O2, organic molecules and other systems. The workshop will provide a small forum (80 to 100 people) for scientists to share novel insights into clumped isotope systematics, discuss calibrations of the carbonate clumped isotope thermometer, present new results on applications to Earth sciences, and explore exciting new avenues of clumped isotope research.
If you are interested in attending, please fill out this brief application form by early October: http://environment.harvard.edu/clumpedisotopes
The application includes an area where you can give a short description of what you would like to present or your research focus. Space is limited to 100 participants, so please apply early.
Once your application has been accepted, you will receive additional information about hotels and logistics, as well as information on how to submit an abstract. A $100 registration fee will be charged to all participants (waived for students), which will be used for meals and student travel support.
We hope that you will be able to join us for this engaging workshop. Please contact Lisa Matthews at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

* <fc #0000FF>Reminder: 2nd workshop on clumped isotopes (abstract submission and registration)</fc> *
We would to remind you that you are still welcome to register to the 2nd International Workshop on Clumped Isotopes, to be held at Imperial College London on the 10, 11 and 12 August 2011!
Abstract submissions and registration deadline is June 10th 2011, so it is coming up quickly.
We have already many registered participants and unfortunately, due to the size of the rooms, the number of participants will be capped to 100. So to ensure you can participate register quickly using the following website: http://www.carbonateresearch.com/clumpedworkshopinfo
You will also be able to find on this website all the informations about the workshop and possible accommodations.
We are looking forward to see you in London !
* <fc #0000FF>2nd workshop on clumped isotopes: abstract submission is now opened</fc> *
You can now submit your abstracts for the workshop at http://www.carbonateresearch.com/abstracts. Deadline for abstract submission is June 10th, 2011.
You can also now book accommodations at a reduced price, and the rooms will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You need to register to the workshop to receive information about accommodations.
* <fc #0000FF>2nd workshop on clumped isotopes, Imperial College London, August 10-12 2011</fc> *
We have the pleasure of announcing the 2nd International Workshop on Clumped isotopes, to be held at Imperial College, in the heart of London and minutes away from the Royal Albert Hall and the Natural History Museum. The workshop is co-organised by Imperial College London (Cedric John) and the University of East Anglia (Paul Dennis), and will take place the week preceeding the Goldshmidt Conference in Prague. Scientists flying to Europe for the Goldshmidt conference could take this opportunity to transit via London for the workshop.
The goal of the workshop is to gather all researchers working or intending to work on clumped isotope, to exchange practical knowledge on the technique, and to work towards inter-laboratory calibrations and standardisation of the methods.
• Tuesday, August 9: Ice breaker party • August 10 - August 11: Clumped isotope workshop with oral presentations and posters. Conference dinner on the 11th of August • Friday, August 12: Optional practical workshop in the stable isotope labs at Imperial College or the University of East Anglia
We anticipate the workshop to be free of charge, participants will simply need to cover their travel and accommodation costs.
At this stage we would appreciate if you could pre-register as soon as possible for the workshop: this will give us an idea of how many participants to expect, and how many presentations will be submitted. The final deadline for registration and abstract submission is June 10, 2011. To register, please visit the following link:
We are looking forward to seeing you in London for the workshop!

There is currently a mailing list used by Caltech-related people. Should this become a community-wide forum, or should someone set up a separate list comparable to the isogeochem list?
