Topics in Mineral Sciences

In 2017 MAC’s Short Course series became ‘Topics in Mineral Sciences’

This series aims to provide reference books and textbooks in the mineral sciences.

Although MAC short courses are normally given at the annual meeting, they may be sponsored at other times of the year at a different venue, and MAC will entertain proposals to underwrite a repeat presentation of the course.

Proposals are accepted by the MAC short course coordinator, for approval by Council at least 15 months before the course is to be offered. The Topics in Mineral Sciences volumes are aimed at the graduate level, targeting both students and professionals who wish to upgrade their skills or who is seeking an overview of the current state of developments and knowledge in the subject.

Check the info that has been prepared to assist the organizers in preparing a 2 to 3 days Short Course and the accompanying volume in the Topics in Mineral Sciences series.
