    SIMSUG 2017 aims to be a stable isotope user group meeting that provides a dynamic forum for discussing state of the art approaches, methodologies and new applications in stable isotope research and mass spectrometry


    Presentations by early career researchers, including PhD students, are particularly welcome and keynote lectures will be interspersed throughout the presentations


    (a call for presentations will come later this year)
