German Mineralogical Society

The German Mineralogical Society is a scientific, non-profit organisation dedicated to promote all disciplines of mineralogy within research and education and foster personal and scientific relations of all members. The DMG was founded in 1908 and today has about 1300 members, who mostly are employed in universities, research institutions and a variety of business companies.

The professional society organises scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational fieldtrips. It sponsors scientific meetings, workshops and short courses, and is the co-publisher of three journals and magazines. A DMG project group connects mineralogists to public schools and offers teaching units.
