About BOGS

The British Organic Geochemical Society (BOGS) was conceived in 1987 and exists to support organic geochemistry in the UK. The Annual Meeting exists as an informal forum for organic geochemistry in all its forms, and there is a particular emphasis on supporting student and early career scientists (who give the majority of talks). Organic geochemists and those interested in the field from all career stages and generations are very welcome!

Please submit single page formatted abstract to (in Word or pdf format) and include whether you would like an oral or poster presentation.

Poster presentations will also be given the oppurtunity to present a 60 second, single slide oral introduction to their posters before the poster session.

The Open University is a leader in distance learning and so for the first time (we think!) the whole of BOGS will be streamed on our Stadium platform. We are also hoping to make recordings of individual talks availble to speakers after the event for review.
