This conference aims at bringing together researchers and students who are active in the investigation of accessory mineral species, especially those that contain high field strength elements (HFSE). These minerals are typically characterised by complex internal textures and chemical compositions, especially after having experienced alteration at low temperatures. Accessory minerals hence may provide valuable information on both primary formation and post-growth history of their host rocks.

Since the appearance of the pioneering review paper "The current state and future of accessory mineral research" by F. Poitrasson and co-authors (Chemical Geology 2002, vol. 191), enormous progress has been made in the study of accessory minerals, which is especially due to the invent of new analytical techniques. This progress became evident again during the "Workshop on Accessory Minerals" that was held at the University of Warsaw, Poland, in September, 2014, organised by Raymond Macdonald and Boguslaw Baginski.

After two days of fruitful discussions and nineteen oral presentations by researsers from countries worldwide, it was agreed to repeat the gathering of accessory-mineral researchers, however in the form of a genuine conference.
