EMU Poster Prize for Mineralogical Crystallography

The European Mineralogical Union (EMU) is pleased to announce the establishment of an award to be presented at IUCr, ECM and IMA meetings.

The prize is awarded to a young scientist for the best poster on mineralogical crystallography and consists of two volumes of "EMU Notes on Mineralogy" published in occasion of the EMU schools. The winner may choose among the titles:

  • Modular aspects of minerals- S. Merlino (Pisa, Italy)
  • Environmental mineralogy - D.J. Vaughan & R. Wogelius (Manchester, U.K.)
  • Solid solution in silicate and oxide systems of geological importance -C. Geiger (Kiel, Germany)
  • Energy modeling in minerals - C.M. Gramaccioli (Milan, Italy)
  • Ultra-high pressure metamorphism - D.A. Carswell (Sheffield, UK) & R. Compagnoni (Torino, Italy), a CD-ROM with additional colour images compiled by F. Rolfo (Torino, Italy) is included
  • Spectroscopic methods in mineralogy - A. Beran & E. Libowitzky (Vienna, Austria)
  • Mineral behaviour at extreme conditions - R. Miletich (Heidelberg, Germany)


Two Awards for ECA - SIG No.5 Members

On 8 November 2006 Artem R. Oganov (ETH Zurich) received the Latsis Prize for significant contributions to mineral physics, in particular for his works on crystal structure prediction and discovery of several major Earth-forming minerals.

On 18 November 2006 Colin W. Glass (ETH Zurich) received the ETH Zurich medal for an outstanding diploma work USPEX - Evolutionary Crystal Structure Prediction.

Congratulations to our members!


Associate Curator of Mineralogy

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is Canada's pre-eminent international museum and houses some of Canada's most important collections in both Natural History and World Cultures. The department houses Canada's largest mineral and gem collections, an important meteorite collection, and a comprehensive petrology collection.

The ROM currently invites applications for the position of an entry-level Associate Curator of Mineralogy to conduct field and collections-related research.
