III ITALIAN SCIENTIFIC GEMOLOGICAL CONGRESS

GEMS

"Research, Tradition and Innovation"

Florence, September 24th - 25th 2012

The 24th and 25th of September 2012 will see The University of Florence and the Museum of Natural History of Florence host the 3rd Italian Congress of Scientific Gemmology - CIGES2012 on the theme of:
GEMSTONES: RESEARCH, TRADITION AND INNOVATION
The Congress is aimed at researchers, with a particular focus on young researchers, as well as those with a solid professional background in the field of commercial gemstone jewellery.
National and International experts will take an in-depth look at theme areas like historical, geologic-giacimentologic, commercial and gemstone jewellery.
The aim of the Congress is that of providing mineralogists, material scientists and gemmologists with the opportunity to meet and to exchange ideas in order to favour professional collaboration from which the scientific, social and commercial communities may benefit.
The Congress will be held, on September 24th, at the Salone Brunelleschi inside of Istituto degli Innocenti, Florence, Piazza SS. Annunziata n. 12, with a number of notable academic and civic guests.
The Congress offers General Presentations of 45 minutes with interventions, by invitation, of 20-30 minutes. A poster session will be run on arguments that concern congress themes.
A round table discussion, will bring the congress with notable guest speakers drawn from academic, gemmological, commercial and political fields.
At the end of the second day, there will be the opportunity to visit the exhibition called “Cristalli” at the Section of Zoology 'La Specola' of Museum of Natural History of Florence.
