Establishment of an International Academic Society for Trapped Charge Dating

At the last LED 2017 meeting in Cape Town there appeared to be strong support for the establishment of an international academic society for trapped charge dating as proposed by the Scientific Advisory Committee of LED 2017. The agreement was to form a working group (WG) that would clear the path for setting up an Association. It was suggested that this working group be formed based on elections at regional meetings. The WG should be completed by November 2018. It was also suggested that discussion sessions are held at the regional meetings to inform the elected representatives about key issues regarding the constitution. An e-mail was sent out by Regina DeWitt, Geoff Duller, and Jan-Pieter Buylaert summarizing the discussion and suggesting discussion topics for the regional meetings.

This webpage serves as the central hub for the ongoing discussion. Summaries of discussions at regional meetings will be available for download here.
