Euroclay 2015 - the quadrennial meeting of the European Clay Groups Association (ECGA) jointly with the annual meeting of The Clay Minerals Society (CMS) and in association with the International Natural Zeolite Association (INZA) and the Geological Society.

To be held at Edinburgh University, Appleton Tower, 5th-10th July 2015.

Organised by The Clay Minerals Group of the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain & Ireland and The Clay Minerals Society.

The scientific program of EUROCLAY 2015 will bring together, in an exciting, leading-edge programme, specialists from different disciplines related to clays and clay minerals. It will consist of technical sessions of both oral and poster presentations with a generous quota of invited speakers who are the leaders in their respective fields.  A pre-meeting workshop and mid-meeting field excursions and short course will be integral parts of the scientific program.

A key aim of this conference will be to integrate industrial and academic workers, with sessions which cover both areas arranged around three societal themes where clay research flourishes, namely Energy, Materials, and Environment and Health.

A visit to Edinburgh is one of life's 'must-do' items. As Scotland's capital city, it is the home of geology and is littered with places of interest for the delegate and accompanying person alike.
