Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The leading theme of the 3rd European Mineralogical Conference (EMC2020) “Mineralogy in the Modern World” will serve as a platform for the exchange of ideas and approaches toward solving scientific problems in the realm of mineralogy related sciences, and we hope that this meeting will start new prospective collaborations. Thanks to the involvement of members from the various European mineralogical societies, a wide range of scientific sessions has been prepared. The main themes of the conference include:

  • Applied mineralogy
  • Archaeometry, care and preservation
  • Atomistic and thermodynamic modelling
  • Education and mineralogy
  • Environmental mineralogy and low T geochemistry
  • Experimental mineralogy and petrology
  • Geobiochemistry , Geomicrobiology and Biomineralogy
  • Geochronology
  • Magmatism and volcanology
  • Mantle petrology and geochemistry
  • Metamorphism
  • Mineral deposits and raw materials
  • Mineral diversity and evolution
  • Mineral physics
  • Mineralogical crystallography
  • Planetary materials and processes

The research results presented at the conference may be published in this Special Issue of Minerals. All the accepted articles will be published in full open access format. To all that are joining us at the conference, please do not miss out on this the opportunity to submit your full paper to the Special Issue.
