Following the tradition of quadri-annual general meetings of the International Mineralogical Association organized by national societies, the French Society for Mineralogy and Crystallography will host the 23rd general meeting of the IMA in Lyon, France during 18-22 July 2022.

2022 is the year to celebrate mineralogy. It marks the bicentennial of the death of René Just Haüy (born 1743) who is a father of modern mineralogy and crystallography. Two centuries ago is also when Haüy’s Traité de mineralogy and Traité de cristallographie were published.
Back to our days, in 2022, the last two main Mars exploration programs, Mars2020 and Huoxing 1, will just have had enough time for science return and post-processing. With the return of Hayabusa 2, for the first time, fragments of a primitive carbonaceous asteroid will be analysed.

The 23rd meeting of the IMA will mark these celebrations. In Lyon, we want to paint IMA 2022 with the colours of space exploration. Alongside the more traditional mineralogist, we want to inspire the new generation and make a step closer toward the final frontier. The meeting will bring together all the new facets of modern mineralogy; it will be the ground play where mineralogy as we know it will meet exploratory planetology, all to celebrate two centuries of mineralogy.
The overarching themes of the IMA2022 are:  

  • Mineral systematics
  • Physics and Chemistry of Minerals
  • Ores and Ore Mineralogy
  • Mineralogy and petrology
  • Planetary Mineralogy
  • Planetary Interiors
  • The Dynamical World Of Minerals

The venue is the Lyon Convention Centre, a state-of-the-art, impressive convention centre featuring 25,000m² of innovative architecture and situated between the Rhône river and the Tête d'Or Park.

On behalf of the French Society for Mineralogy and Crystallography, the leading committee is formed of Razvan Caracas, Herve Cardon, and Cathy Quantin-Nataf.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Lyon in 2022!
