Processes of formation and transformation of minerals and
rocks, indicators of genesis. Constitution of minerals and rocks
as a constraint for their origin.
2. Mineralogical crystallography and crystal
New data on descriptive studies and
modeling of crystal substance.
3. Applied mineralogy
Mineralogical methods applied
to geology, gemology, materials science, biology and other fields of science
4. History of science
This traditional session is dedicated to
anniversaries of the year.
