9th European Conference on Mineralogy and Spectroscopy

We would like to draw your attention to the updated information on the 9th European Conference on Mineralogy and Spectroscopy that will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, between September 11 and September 13, 2019.


Czech Geological Society

Conference venue

The ECMS 2019 will take place in the conference centre of the Břevnov Monastery in Prague, Czech Republic (Břevnov Monastery, Markétská 1/28, 169 00 Praha 6; http://www.brevnov.cz/en/).

Conference mission

ECMS 2019 will deal with mineralogy, spectroscopy and related fields of science, with a special focus on the interplay between short-range and long-range information to account for crystalline and amorphous materials physical properties.
The Conference will bring together both theoretically and experimentally oriented scientists, providing them with an opportunity to share ideas and learn from one another.
