The 22nd GoldschmidtTM conference took place in June 2012 in Montreal, Canada. The conference focussed on the Earth in Evolution and includes "great science, exciting activities, and the chance to network and socialise with many groups and individuals working in the field.

The contribution of ImmoRad project concentrated on "Structural incorporation of heavy metals/radionuclides into mineral phases in aqueous environment", "Physicochemical constraints of the marine carbonate system: recent insights into the reactivity of carbonate minerals in aqueous solutions" and "Structure and dynamics of ions and water at mineral-water interfaces: insights from experimental and computational studies".
