We are excited to announce a Sydney-based workshop that will bring existing and emerging leaders in deep carbon research to discuss the state of the discipline, but importantly a plan for future collaboration that builds on the momentum generated by the Deep Carbon Observatory. The workshop will be held on Wednesday and Thursday 24 and 25 July, followed by an optional field trip to NSW coastal geology on Friday 26 July that aims to link concepts of tectonics, paleobiology, and deep carbon. The Alfred P Sloan has generously funded the workshop, as well as a significant in-kind contribution for venue hire from the University of Sydney. We have the funds to support the travel and accommodation for a number of participants (mostly Australian-based researchers, and a number of international participants), but everyone is welcome to attend. Catering will be provided, and there is no cost associated with the field trip. Numbers are limited for both the workshop and the field trip, so please indicate your interest via the Google Form link sent to you by Sabin.
