The Goldschmidt Conferences™ were started in 1988 by the international Geochemical Society (GS) to provide a forum for its members to discuss their latest research. The conference is named in honor of Victor M. Goldschmidt (1888 – 1947), whose classification of the behavior of the elements in the Earth and meteorites laid the basis of modern geochemisty. Each year, the conference brings together thousands of scientists from throughout the world to talk about subjects including the origin of the Earth and planets, the chemical processes that have shaped Earth’s evolution over time, the interconnections between life and the physical world, the search for new resources, and the environmental challenges facing today’s world.
In collaboration with the organiser of the conferences, Cambridge Publications Limited (now White Iron Conferences Limited), turrall consulting produced a hybrid iOS and Android conference app for use by conference attendees in the run up to, and during, the conference in Sacramento, USA. The app was developed in such a way that it could be easily adapted and reconfigured to serve as conference app for the Goldschmidt, and other, conferences in future years.
