What? "Minerals, rocks and fluids: alphabet and words of planet Earth": following the success of the 1st European Mineralogical Congress held in Frankfurt in 2012, emc2016 will showcase the state-of-the-art of mineralogical sciences, fostering exchange of new research results between the European - and international - countries.

Where? emc2016 will be held at the Palacongressi of Rimini, a brand-new, perfect venue for an international Congress aiming at attracting one thousand participants or more. In addition, Rimini's long tradition in hotel hospitality business may offer accommodation and food at an unbeatable value for money.

When? The Congress will run on September 11-15, 2016. Mid-september is typically mild weather in Italy. At the same time it is low-season for cheaper hotel accommodation. Pre- and post-congress field-trips and workshops will also be organized.

Who? emc2016 in Italy is organized by the Società Italiana di Mineralogia e Petrologia (SIMP). The local organizing committee is chaired by Giuseppe Cruciani (University of Ferrara) and Bernardo Cesare (University of Padova), SIMP past-Presidents.
