5. Goldschmidt meeting at Frankfurt

AGU2005 fall meeting (San Francisco, Dec.5-9, 2005). E. Ohtani was invited and gave a talk on Melt Crystal density crossover in the Earth during a session on Molten Earth: Liquid in the Earth’s Interior, organized by Agee and Stixrude.

The IMA General Meeting in Kobe - CPM was a member of the organizing committee and program committee. CPM submitted five proposed sessions on Mineral Physics for the IMA2006Kobe meeting (23th-28th July, 2006), and sponsored two mineral physics sessions; Mineralogy and dynamics of the mantle and core (Convened by Bass, Hirose, Ohtani, Rubie) amd Structure and physical properties of melts and glasses (Convened Neuville) by Henderson, Kanzaki, Neuville) and is going to make an invited talk.
