until the IBiS 2024 Meeting in Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium
At the Earth and Life Institute, UCLouvain, Croix du Sud, 2

It is our pleasure to announce the 11th Isotopes in Biogenic Silica (IBiS) meeting to be held at the UC Louvain, Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium from 29-31 May 2024. The meeting will bring together researchers from different disciplines who share a common interest in silicon, biogeochemical cycling and all of the isotopes associated with biogenic silica.

Previous IBiS meetings have inspired discussions and scientific advances, and we hope that this meeting will continue in that tradition. In addition, the meetings provide an excellent opportunity for graduate students, early career scientists and more established colleagues to share their latest findings, identify areas of future research and solve methodological issues.
