Isotope Workshop XV
We have a great pleasure to invite everyone interested in different application of stable isotope techniques to the ESIR Isotope Workshop XV, which will take place on June, 23-27, 2019 in Lublin. Venue of the conference is the Victoria Hotel.
The conference is organized by the Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, Institute of Physics, Maria Curie-Skłodowska University together with the Lublin Branch of the Polish Physical Society.
ESIR 2019 is the fifteenth Workshop of the ESIR, in a series of scientific events that started in 1992 in Lublin, Poland and continued with Książ, Poland (1994), Budapest, Hungary (1996), Portorož, Slovenia (1998), Kraków, Poland (2000), Tallinn, Estonia (2002), Seggauberg, Austria (2004), Leipzig, Germany (2005), Cluj-Napoca, Romania (2007), Złotniki Lubańskie, Poland (2009), Budapest, Hungary (2011), Freiberg, Germany (2013), Zadar, Croatia (2015) and Baile Govora, Romania (2017).
During the Conference we would like to discuss the following topics related to the field of isotope research:
♦ General Isotope Geochemistry
♦ Geology and Paleoclimatology
♦ Ecology and Environmental Research
♦ Methods and Instrumental Techniques
♦ Inert gas and Radiogenic Isotopes
♦ Isotopes in Biology and Medicine
♦ Other Application of Isotopes
The interdisciplinary nature of the conference presents a unique opportunity for the exchange of information and promotes both collaborative and personal relationships amongst its participants. It provides first-hand opportunities to report advancements and innovations in a highly critical and stimulating environment.
Scientific program of the conference will include plenary lectures, oral presentations and posters.
Lectures, oral presentations and posters during the Conference will be in English.
To encourage young scientists and PhD students to present their best contributions, a panel of scientific experts will select the best oral presentations and posters presented to be awarded in the competition for the Best Presentation and Best Poster.
The participants will have also the opportunity, after the scientific meetings, to visit several interesting places in Lublin, administrative center of the voivodship, the capital of the Lublin Region, home to 365 thousand inhabitants and the biggest town in Eastern Poland.
The great history of Lublin starts in 1317 when Lublin was granted municipal status. In 1474 Lublin became the capital of the voivodship, a role it has continuously played to this day. During the years of the first Republic, Lublin, which was centrally located, was inhabited by different nationalities and religious denominations that constituted a rich and varied community. Lublin is an academic center recognized in Poland and abroad, with a rich educational offer.

You may choose to send us an abstract or a manuscript of paper (short or standard):
♦ Abstract: 1 page only text
♦ Short paper: 3-5 pages with max. 2 illustrations (table and/or figure)
♦ Standard paper: 6-10 pages
In case you wish to submit a manuscript of short paper (3-5 pages) or standard paper (6-20 pages), then please download both the paper template and the guidelines for authors files. In the latter file you can find the instructions for authors.
Write the manuscript into the template and mail it to email@example.com
Poster boards are in portrait format with a dimension of A0 size (90 cm width x 120 cm height). In any case, posters must be no larger than 950 mm wide x 1250 mm high. All the material necessary (pins and tacks) for attaching the poster to the poster board is available at the facility desks in the poster area (the poster boards are not suitable for using adhesive tapes!). All posters will be displayed for the whole time of the conference.
The duration of oral presentations (except key-notes and presentations of the invited speakers) should be around 15 min + the time for questions and discussions (approx. 3 min).
The authors are kindly asked to upload their presentations before the actual time block of the session starts. A lecture room assistant will be available for any help. The notebook in the lecture room is equipped with the software of Windows 10, MS Office 2013, the newest version of Adobe Reader.
Dear Young Participants,
We announce the "Best poster" and "Best presentation" competitions among those who are not older than 35 years. The jury will score the posters and presentations according to the following criteria (more or less the same as it was in the previous Workshops):
♦ overall impression
♦ clear description of the problem and the applied methods
♦ clear formulation of the conclusions
♦ background knowledge (members of the jury will ask questions to see how familiar the young researcher is with the topic of his/her poster)
The winners of the each competition will be awarded. The result of the competition will be announced during one of the conference dinners.
ESIR organizes a biannual Isotope Workshop always with special care to minimize participation costs and to promote of attendance of researchers from Central and Eastern Europe.
