To the 75th Year of the Geological Faculty at SPbU
St. Petersburg, October 1-5,
You are cordially invited to participate in
the II International Conference on CRYSTALLOGENESIS AND MINERALOGY to be held in
St.Petersburg in October 2007. The Conference is devoted to the development of
fundamental crystallogenesis and its implications in mineralogy: modeling of
mineral formation processes; analysis of genetic character of crystal morphology
and crystal chemistry of minerals; studies of aggregate structures; synthesis of minerals and other crystalline
materials; crystallogenesis in organic mineralogy and biomineralogy; history and teaching the
The Conference is dedicated to the 100th
birthday of Professor V.B. Tatarsky (05.11.1907-23.02.1993), outstanding Russian
scientist who made significant contributions to mineralogy and
The Conference is given up to the 75th year of the Geological Faculty of
Saint-Petersburg State University.
