ABOUT

We would like to invite you to the 27th Meeting of the Petrology Group of the Mineralogical Society of Poland – the petrology conference which will take place from 20th to 23rd October 2022 in the Post-Cistercian Monastery and Palace Complex in Rudy near Rybnik, Poland.

These meetings have been initiated, organized, continued, and scientifically supported by Jacek Puziewicz with his team. This year, as in 2004, 2007, 2009, and 2015, it will be organized by the Upper Silesian team. As always, the organizing committee guarantees a high scientific level, beautiful scenery, fruitful discussions, and fascinating rocks during the field trip.

The scope of the 27th Meeting of the Petrology Group will cover a vast spectrum of topics related to petrology. Let’s share what we are currently working on. We plan to start with our main topic: Gangue rocks: insights from nature, anthropogene, laboratory and Solar System.

We invite all interested researchers, scientists and students to participate in our meeting!

MINERALOGICAL SOCIETY OF POLAND

The Polskie Towarzystwo Mineralogiczne (Mineralogical Society of Poland), founded in 1969, draws together professionals and amateurs interested in mineralogy, crystallography, petrology, geochemistry, and economic geology. The Society promotes links between mineralogical science and education and technology through annual mineralogy and petrology conference, field trips, invited lectures, and publishing. There are three active groups: the Clay Minerals Group, the Petrology Group, and the Geochemical Group. Membership benefits include subscriptions to Mineralogia and Elements.

GANGUE ROCKS: INSIGHTS FROM NATURE, ANTHROPOGENE, LABORATORY AND SOLAR SYSTEM

We encourage you to submit presentation topics related to the conference theme: Gangue rocks: insights from nature, antropogene, laboratory and Solar System. Gangue, commonly considered a useless material, often surprises scientists with its properties and wide potential for use. At the conference, we would like to collect current research topics related to each type of gangue. We are open to case studies, methodological research, and reviews.

Feel free to interpret our leading topic broadly.
