The Californian Goldschmidt will take place in Sacramento between June 8th and June 13th, 2014. Goldschmidt2014 will follow the pattern established for the recent Goldschmidt conferences, and should be the prime forum for all recent developments in Geochemistry and related fields. The venue is conveniently close to many of California's renowned geologic features including Yosemite Valley and the Sierra Nevada batholith, several ophiolite complexes, and the fossil subduction zone of the Franciscan Complex. Sacramento is also well placed for excursions to the main Californian wine producing areas and other tourist areas in the state. Field trips linked to symposia will be a hallmark of the conference.
