The 28th European Crystallography Meeting

On August 30, 2013, in News, by Richard Cooper

The main conference drew to a close following an inspiring lecture by Nobel Prize winner Dan Shechtman “Quasi-Periodic Materials – Crystals Redefined”.

Conference organisers Sandy Blake and Elspeth Garman thanked the many people involved in planning and running the meeting; the meeting has been an outstanding success thanks to a lot of hard work behind the scenes. A special thanks to Mike Glazer, Pam Thomas and their team for the wonderful ‘Two Braggs Exhibition’ which has run throughout the meeting and brought together a fascinating and inspiring collection of artefacts, art and correspondence never before seen in one exhibition.

During the closing ceremony many poster prizes were awarded. Congratulations to all of the well-deserving winners. Details will appear in the meeting reports, which will be linked from here, in due course.

The organisers would like to thank all of the exhibitors and sponsors of ECM28 for their financial support and contributions to the conference, both scientific and social. We are very grateful to the International Union of Crystallography, the European Crystallographic Association and the British Crystallographic Association for their support.

Finally, on behalf of the other organisers and delegates: a special thank you to Sandy and Elspeth for delivering an exciting, stimulating, and well run conference! See you at ECM29 in Rovinj, Croatia.
