summer school “Sulfur in melts”
An interdisciplinary short course/workshop on “Sulfur in Magmas and Melts and Its Importance for Natural and Technical Processes” is held in Goslar, Germany, on August 20-23, 2011. This course will bring together experts in relevant geological and geochemical fields with those in glass and steel sciences and technology, and we invite interested students and professionals to attend.

The short course will involve lectures based on the new Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry volume 73. Topics to be addressed include

- methods for sulfur determination in rocks, minerals, and glasses;
- speciation, solubility, and diffusion of sulfur in silicate melts;
- thermodynamic modeling of S-bearing systems;
- sulfur stable isotope systematics;
- partitioning of sulfur between fluid, melts, and minerals;
- importance of sulfur in preparing, coloring, and melting industrial glasses;
- volcanic eruptions and fining of glass melts;
- formation of magmatic ore deposits;
- solar systems and steel production.

Own research can be presented and discussed in a poster session. A summer school is offered for students and young researchers.
