Invitation and welcome

On October 23, 2012, in News, by Andreas Roodt

Dear Colleagues,

The 28th European Crystallographic Meeting will be held in Warwick during August 2013, organized by our British crystallographer colleagues.
We would like to welcome and invite to Warwick all crystallographers and scientists with interests in crystallography and crystal growth to share with us their scientific views and new achievements. It will also provide an excellent opportunity to strengthen the links with the IUCr and the regional associates AsCA and ACA.

The Program Committee is organizing a diverse scientific program of microsymposia and keynote lectures in five focus areas to illustrate the growth in science of the ECA Special Interest Groups and the additional networking activity of the General Interest Groups. At ECM28 we will celebrate the centenary of the first crystal structure determinations, and have the opportunity to view at first hand some of the original equipment used by the Bragg father and son, William Henry and William Lawrence. The award ceremony of the 7th Max Perutz Prize of the European Crystallographic Association will also take place during ECM28.

Another important component of the meeting is the ECA Council, where the councillors from 33 national members get together with the three individual members’ representatives and the corporate associate members’ representative to review the work of the Association.

Everything is in place for a successful 28th European Crystallographic Meeting, and I hope that you will accept this invitation from the ECA and our British crystallographer colleagues. I also look forward to welcoming you in person at Warwick.

Andreas Roodt
European Crystallographic Association
