In the foreground is the University of Hawaii flagship campus, at Manoa, with Diamond Head and Pacific Ocean.

The goal of the 6th Biennial Geochemical SIMS Workshop is to gather specialists in Secondary Ion Mass-spectrometry who will present and discuss technical approaches to scientific problems, instrument operation and improvements, standards, and service to the national geochemical community. International participation is encouraged.
