The 5th biennial edition of the ?International Symposium on Granitic Pegmatites? designated ?PEG2011 ARGENTINA?, will be held in the city of Mendoza, Argentina from 20 to 27 ofFebruary, 2011. This conference follows in the sequence of former meetings held in Brno (2003), Elba (2005), Porto (2007) and Recife (2009).This meeting has attracted the participation of 125researchers, from 18 different countries on 5 continents, and will be highlighted by 4 invited lecturers and 55 extended abstracts about mineralogy (28), geochemistry (10), petrology andpetrogenesis (21). The three-day conference (February 21-23) will hold the oral and poster presentations. The post-symposium Field Trip (February 24-27) will visit the San Luis ranges, and will permit the observation, discussion and sampling of different kinds of granitic pegmatites outcropping in the southern districts of the Pampean pegmatite province.The occasion was also considered appropriate to celebrate and honor the life-long academic path of Dr. Petr Cerný, for his outstanding dedication to the investigation of the mineralogy,geochemistry and petrogenesis of granitic pegmatites. Dr. Cerný has been a Corresponding Member of the Asociación Geológica Argentina since 2001, and has particularly contributed to theknowledge base of Argentinean pegmatites, participating in the description of two new minerals and in studies about the mineralogy of pegmatitic assemblages of oxides, phosphates andsilicates.
