Technological innovations have brought forth tremendous advances in traditional experimental techniques used in the investigation of composition, structure, and properties of minerals: X-ray diffraction, spectroscopy, and mineral physics. On the other hand, the development of novel theoretical concepts has led to the true Renaissance of theoretical mineralogy and crystallography. The XIX International Meeting on Crystal Chemistry, X-ray Diffraction and Spectroscopy of Minerals will be held on 2–5 July 2019 in Apatity, Kola peninsula, Russia, a famous mineral locality, where the largest number of new mineral species in the history of mineralogy have been discovered. The Meeting is devoted to the memory of great Russian crystallographer, mineralogist, petrologist, and mining engineer Academician E.S. Fedorov (10(22).12.1853–21.05.1919), one of the founders of modern crystallography and discoverer of 230 space groups. It will cover a broad range of topics, including general problems of inorganic crystal chemistry and structural mineralogy, X-ray crystallography, mineral physics and spectroscopy, high-pressure and high-temperature crystal chemistry, theoretical crystal chemistry, and mineralogy.
This Special Issue will include high-quality research papers presented at the conference. We cordially invite you to participate in the Meeting and to contribute your manuscript to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Minerals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
