What conference organisers say about us...
"I cannot recommend Cambridge Publications too highly. They helped us
organise the conference and provided an administrative and electronic
infrastructure that took care of almost all our dealings with the
delegates. This left us free to ensure that the meeting's scientific
content was of the highest standard. It was a great pleasure working with
Professor Sir Keith O'Nions FRS
Chief Scientific Officer,

"The volume was EXCEPTIONALLY well received!! Thanks again for your help, words
of encouragement and support, and dedication to an excellent
Professor Kelman Wieder
"I cannot imagine organizing a Goldschmidt Conference without Paul's expertise and assistance.
Paul's projections of attendance and the flow of abstracts and registrations was amazingly accurate, which enabled us
to make better budgetary decisions, and his handling of the program was masterful."
"Because of their experience, they knew in advance all the
usual problems we would face: we therefore made them the kernel of our
plans for the conference. However, it was their response to the unexpected
which we found most valuable: they made it easy for us to handle the
potential crises that any large meeting presents."
President, European Union of Geosciences
"Cambridge Publications combination of experience and institutional memory from
organising many Goldschmidt's combine with Dr Paul Beattie's own geochemistry background to provide a unique insight into
running a successful Goldschmidt conference that cannot be matched… At every stage of the process Paul provided advice that
was always spot on. In the first instance this was in providing advice on and setting up the critical communication lines between
the many stakeholders. The shear volume of email traffic and telephone calls that Paul's team handled throughout the entire
process was staggering. If even a portion of the 'routine' email load had reached my desk my research and teaching would have
sank without trace."
Professor Chris Ballentine
"In the preparation for the Goldschmidt conference in Vancouver in 2008, Paul has been extremely helpful:
Paul's knowledge of the conference is amazing, his organizational sense impressive and his care for exciting science, good
conference and good social events contagious. All this with a sense of humor that is very refreshing."
Professor Dominique Weis
"When we proposed to have the Goldschmidt Conference in Cologne we were sure that Cambridge Publications
would take over part of the organisation, otherwise we would not have done it. They have the expertise on which we could rely...
Furthermore, the Cambridge Publications team has invaluable experience in all logistic questions related to the conference.
Their advice has helped us enormously in our daily planning; we could always rely on Paul and his people. Without Paul and his
team we would have encountered severe problems and it is unlikely that we would been as successful as we apparently are… With
so many successful conferences planned it would be silly not cooperate with Paul Beattie and his team."
Collaboration with Paul Beattie and the folks at Cambridge Publications was a major stress reducer.
They handled abstract submission and preparation, scheduling of the papers, and a number of other tasks expertly and flawlessly.
I really appreciate your cooperation. I think our experience with you proves that a Goldschmidt Conference
in any places in the world could be prepared by a local organizing committee by cooperating with your team... The contribution of
Cambridge Publications was indispensable to the conference.
Cambridge Publications proved themselves to be outstanding partners who worked very hard to give us the
kind of abstract submission procedures, deadlines, program organization and web pages that we wanted.
Professor Alex Halliday
Cambridge Publications were a pleasure to work with, I cannot recommend them too highly. They took care
of almost all of the administration, communication and publications needs, leaving us free to ensure that our meeting’s scientific
programme was of the highest standard.
Sir Keith O’Nions
The meeting was a great success, thanks in no small part to the hard and compentent work of Beattie and
Cambridge Publications. The symbiosis between local meeting organizers and Cambridge Publications continued over the years,
partly via EUG meetings in Strasburg, for all subsequent European Goldschmidt Conferences
"Goldschmidt 2002 was an outstanding success: I have seldom
seen delegates so happy and satisfied. The conference was expertly and
efficiently organised and ran very smoothly. Cambridge Publications
produced some of the best conference publications I have seen, and I have
recommended them to our other conferences. Delegates appreciated the
ability to include pictures, tables and equations easily and the efficient
on-line systems provided to make submission very straightforward. I would
recommend Cambridge Publications to any conference wanting to provide
first class publications to their delegates.
... you did a perfect
