Though the normal registration fee is kept low, there are several grant options available. Grants will particularly, but not exclusively, encourage and help the participation of

  • active researchers (both in academic and applied positions) from countries, mainly from Latin America, Asia and Africa, where IMA had smaller impact in the last decades and/or where research and teaching of mineral sciences is less organised;
  • students and young scientists of promising dedication, with first results, but limited funds;
  • retired researchers of strong accumulated academic record, but no more institutional and financial background.
