21st International Radiocarbon Conference

Dates: From 09 Jul, 2012 till 13 Jul, 2012
Location: Paris, France

The 21st International Radiocarbon Conference is co‐organized by the French Radiocarbon community and UNESCO. It will be hosted at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, from 9 to 13 July 2012. If you have any results related to past continental reconstructions and radiocarbon then you are encouraged to submit an abstract to the session number 11.

The 21st International Radiocarbon Conference is co-­‐organized by the French Radiocarbon community and UNESCO. It will be hosted at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, from 9 to 13 July 2012. The interdisciplinary nature of UNESCO provides an ideal platform for this international Conference, cutting across numerous scientific disciplines as well as cultural aspects.

The Radiocarbon conferences are recurrent events organized every 3 years. They are designed by and for the international scientific community of Radiocarbon users. It is a worldwide forum to discuss and exchange recent developments, new ideas and challenges on the merging research fields of Radiocarbon. After long being used as a “chronometer” only, 14C now appears as a powerful tracer of life and earth system processes. For this reason, besides the traditional sessions of 14C such as calibration, archaeology and palaeoenvironmental studies, the 21st International Radiocarbon Conference opens up to a broader range of scientific disciplines that make use of 14C as tracer of fluxes and processes, such as hydrology, ocean sciences, medicine, ecology as well as other unusual applications (forensic, certification,...). A special focus will be given to the efforts linking observations and models to produce accurate predictions across multiple spatial and time scales.

Radiocarbon 2012 will offer a comprehensive and original scientific programme which will combine plenary and parallel sessions, poster presentations, workshops and a number of side events. Worldwide experts have been invited to contribute to the elaboration of this programme by submitting abstracts pertinent to the themes and topics of the Conference. High-level speakers from different disciplines will set the scene, provide updates on latest developments and address burning issues.

In addition to this full scientific immersion in the Radiocarbon world, the city of Paris will provide a delightful surrounding to spend time with old friends, make new ones.
