This is a friendly reminder that the 2023 CMS Annual Meeting abstract submission deadline is looming (~3 weeks). I hope you all will consider submitting your research topics to this meeting.
All clay-related research topics are welcome, in addition to the proposed session topics.
Please limit abstracts to <350 words. Detailed abstract guidelines are presented on the submission page. Abstract submission will close February 6, 2023.
Check-out our website for constant updates and meeting changes. Good example….we have a new short course topic!
1. Critical materials and clays.
2. Environmental applications of natural and modified clays.
3. Porosity in shales and mudstones.
4. Clays in carbon capture, utilization, and storage and hydrogen applications.
5. Role of clay minerals in the events leading to the origin of life.
6. Caves and sediments.
7. Advancements in the application and characterization of clay minerals in petroleum industry.
8. Current trends in research and development of bentonites for the isolation of spent nuclear fuel.
9. Isotopes and clays.
10. Industrial application of clays and zeolites.
11. Engineered layered materials and their interfacial properties.
The Clay Mineral Society is an international organization devoted to the study of clays and clay minerals. CMS hosts annual meetings bringing clay scientist across a multitude of disciplines together to exchange research findings and build a collaborative atmosphere.
The Annual Meeting will be held from May 20-25, 2023, in Austin, Texas at the University of Texas-Austin, J.J. Pickle Research Campus.
Short-Course: 1D and 3D modeling of clay structure with Sybilla.
Field Trip: Clay mineralogy and geology of caves in the Edwards Limestone.

The Papers in Press page of the American Mineralogist -- http://www.minsocam.org/MSA/Ammin/AM_Preprints.html -- is the first place accepted papers are published. The posted version is the Author's Accepted Manuscript (AAM), and this is done after acceptance, as soon as possible. This site is available to all researchers and readers. This site free. The goal is fast -- all copyediting, layout, and so on is completed for the final publication. Best of all, these Papers in Press papers have a DOI that will repoint to the final version when that is published.

Right now, perhaps these papers sound interesting -- although I am hoping that All the papers sound great:
Brenan et al.; Geochemical variation, biotite, Nova Scotia
Schaub et al., and rhyolite-hosted topaz with complicated sounding XAS
Chatterjee et al.; information about the origin of clinopyrozene-ilmenite symplectites in mafic granulites (East Indian shield)
Post et al.; the crystal structure of Feitknechtite (and more)
Thank you for checking out the papers-in-press!
