Environmental Mineralogy Group and RSC Radiochemistry Group Research in Progress Meeting

15 July 2024 12:00 - 16 July 2024 13:00, Manchester, United Kingdom

Dates: 15th-16th July 2024

Theme: Environmental Contaminant Mobility: Mineralogy & Radiochemistry

Topics covered:
  • Non-radioactive and radioactive environmental contaminants (including organics)
  • Mineralogical transformations and processes
  • Environmental processes (such as, redox cycling, sulfidation, etc.)
  • Environmental (radio)chemistry
  • Biogeochemistry
  • Contaminated land
  • Molecular radiochemistry
  • Impacts of waste disposal (including radioactive waste disposal)
Who’s it for?
Research in Progress Meetings aim to provide a friendly and welcoming environment for everyone to present their current work. We particularly welcome Masters and PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, early career academics, and researches in industry to present their findings and gain experience presenting, networking, and interacting with fellow scientists. Oral and poster presentations will be available in addition to ample time to meet colleagues and discuss work. The meeting will also be hybrid for those who cannot attend in-person.

Keynote Speaker:
Prof Claire Corkhill (Professor in Mineralogy & Radioactive Waste Management at the University of Bristol)

A confirmed agenda will be circulated closer to the event, however the schedule will follow the format of travel time in the morning of Monday 15th July for an approximate midday start followed by talks and posters. An optional conference meal will then held in the evening of the 15th July. A half day of conference talks will take place on Tuesday 16th July before closure to allow travel time in the afternoon.

Organising Committee:
Liam Abrahamsen-Mills (National Nuclear Laboratory)
