ASITA Conference 2014

Advances in Stable Isotope Techniques and Applications

Stable Isotope Facility

University of California, Davis

June 15 - 18, 2014 (completed)



The UC Davis Stable Isotope Facility is pleased to host Advances in Stable Isotope Techniques and Applications (ASITA) in sunny California from June 15 to 18, 2014.   This year ASITA, previously the Canadian CF-IRMS Workshop, celebrates its 20th anniversary.  The focus of the workshop continues to be methodology advancements, technical challenges, and novel applications.  This workshop has a reputation of being a lighthearted forum for discussing and solving technical challenges.  We look forward to another great meeting.


The conference will begin Sunday with a day of short courses focusing on basic isotope analysis, instrument operation and troubleshooting, and data manipulation.  The remainder of the conference will feature oral and poster presentations, as well as break-out discussions on an assortment of topics including user sessions for specific instrumentation.  Instrument users and vendors are encouraged to participate and present their work related to new techniques or application of stable isotopes in earth sciences. Please contact us to suggest discussion topics.


Lab tours will be arranged for Wednesday and will likely include several labs within a short distance of UC Davis.


ASITA will be the week following Goldschmidt (June 8-13th) and Davis is just 20 minutes west of Sacramento.  For those attending Goldschmidt, consider minimizing travel costs and enjoying a weekend in northern California. Davis is conveniently located central to numerous attractions including San Francisco, Napa, and Lake Tahoe.  


Website, registration, abstract submission, and housing details will be updated regularly. We highly recommend booking your lodging soon, as reservation blocks are limited.
