Back from Uppsala

Last week (August 12-15th) twenty-three members of the Barcelona SGA Student Chapter attended the 12th SGA Biennial Meeting at the University of Uppsala, Sweden. Most of the students presented their last research results as posters and Cristina Villanova and Thomas Aiglsperger gave a talk (and they did so well!). We gratefully acknowledge the SGA for the inscription and travel grants that allowed the participation of the Barcelona SGA SC in such a meeting point on Mineral Deposits.

During these four days we have attended different talks on different kinds of mineral deposits from all over the world. It was also an opportunity for various mining companies to promote themselves and to look for students which may be interested in joining them for future jobs or internships. The BCN SGA SC found this evening activity very positive for the students.

Also, we were warmly welcomed by the local students in Uppsala. They provided us a student card to join the different "nations", the students' bars and restaurants, and we spent a great time with the student staff of the 12th SGA Biennial Meeting.

This meeting has been a great experience for us and a great success for the organization team! Congratulations to the organizing committee, to the companies and to the students that made it possible!!! We hope we will participate in the next SGA Biennal Meeting in Nancy (France)!
