ELEMENTS 5 talks at IMA2010

Elements - An International Magazine of Mineralogy, Geochemistry, and Petrology is published bimonthly by 15 international and national societies.

In 2010, ELEMENTS magazine celebrates its 5th anniversary. The International Mineralogical Association pays tribute to the great service ELEMENTS has given to the international mineral sciences-related community by offering six IMA2010 plenary talks (ELEMENTS5 talks) on topics representing some of the most exciting and popular themes of the past ELEMENTS issues.

The first issue of ELEMENTS was published in January 2005, and since then the magazine has been filling a gap in mineral sciences in a very professional and attractive way. Due to the effort of the founding, principal and managing editors, during the past five years 30 issues have been published (187 thematic articles, 2054 pages).

Elements 5 talks are scheduled every day, from Sunday (Aug. 22) to Friday (Aug. 27)
(for a general overview, see the IMA2010 Plenary and Elements5 talks timetable)
