SIMS-NanoSIMS Workshop –  Goldschmidt 2023

In 2023 we organized, at the University of Lausanne between 6th and 8th of July 2023, a SIMS-NanoSIMS workshop before the Goldschmidt Conference 2023 in Lyon. The main goal of this workshop was to gather specialists and experts in Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS and NanoSIMS) to cover technical and scientific aspects of geochemical micro and nanoanalysis. It has brought together scientists and students, laboratory managers and instrument manufacturers to discuss the state-of-the-art of SIMS and NanoSIMS analysis and scientific results. 

50 people attended onsite, and 11 online. The schedule can be found here:
