Geomicrobiology Network



The Geomicrobiology Network, formally ratified as a special interest group of the Mineralogical Society in March 2014, works to improve the interface between UK academia and industry (nuclear, petroleum, mining, environmental sectors) and major international groups in our field. The recently appointed committee consists of Chair: Jon Lloyd, Treasurer: Geoff Gadd, Secretary: Vern Phoenix, and committee members: Barrie Johnson, Lynn Macaskie, Tom Clarke, John Parks, Ian Head, Charles Cockell, Vicky Coker and Joanne Santini, and the group will also appoint a Communications Person and a Student representative.

Hotel and B&B accommodation in Bangor and the immediate environs is already very limited on Sunday 12th and Monday 13th June. The organisers have reserved rooms for delegates at two University venues each less than a ten minute walk from the meeting venue.  However there are cut-off dates for booking both of these, so booking should be made by April 29th, after which rooms will no longer be held for us.

Details of accommodation and how to book can be found here: Student Accommodation ; Other accommodation
