Forthcoming Mineralogical Society Meetings

Mineralogical Society meetings are held in London and at Universities and other institutions throughout Britain and occasionally in Ireland. Joint meetings are often arranged with other organisations, such as the Geological Society, the Royal Society, the Meteoritical Society, the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining, etc.

Check here for a list of other meetings maintained on behalf of Elements by Andrea Koziol. Sections of this list also appear in Elements.

Check here for reports from previous meetings (including reports by the convenors, photographs, presentations, and in some cases, recordings).

The Society has created a set of guidelines on how to organize a meeting on behalf of the Society.
