Rochester Mineralogical Symposium 2020

Last Updated: 19th Dec 2019

By Herwig Pelckmans

The report of this event will be updated every time new information is available, and in the end will have a full report of what happened during the whole event.

RMS 2020

The lineup of speakers is telling me it's going to be a very fascinating symposium again:
Calvin Anderson,
David Joyce,
Vladimir Klipov,
Inna Lykova,
Harold Moritz,
Herwig Pelckmans,
Jeff Scovil,
Terry Wallace.

As soon as the titles of the talks become available, I'll post them here.

Of all the US mineralogical symposia I have attended, the RMS is my favorite, for the unique interaction between professional and recreational mineralogists, between facts and fun, between unknowns evolving to friends. If there is only one mineral symposium you ever plan on attending, then this one would be my choice. If distance is an issue, then the one in New Mexico is a close second.
My best advice: attend both, and more than once! :-)

Previous Rochester Symposia have been written up in the following articles:

But remember: nothing even comes close to attending this symposium in person!
Cheers, Herwig
