Crystallography nowadays is very interdisciplinary extending from structural biology, pharmacy and chemistry to physics and materials science. It includes study of structure of proteins but also for example the crystals structure and microstructure of minerals, new functional materials, nanoparticles, bulk materials, and thin films. It is interested also in relation between structure and function of materials. Important related topics is development of instrumental techniques for structural characterization of materials including large facilities – XFELs, synchrotrons and neutron sources but also continuous improvement of laboratory equipments, development of optics, better and faster detectors.

The core methods of crystallography are X-ray and neutron scattering. However, mainly in last decade, it includes electron diffraction and microscopy, NMR and different spectroscopies. This development also allows investigation of structural changes under extreme conditions like high and low temperatures, high pressures, time-resolved studies, different in-situ experiments in external fields (magnetic, electric), chemical reactions.

The scope of the congress comprises all this. Moreover, this is the 25th anniversary congress and completes one era of these congresses that started in 1948.

5–8 March 2018 26th Annual Meeting of the German Crystallographic Society (DGK)

Essen, Germany

Dear colleagues,

It is a pleasure and an honor to invite you to the 26th Annual Meeting of the German Society of Crystallography to the University of Duisburg-Essen. The venue of the Annual Meeting is Essen in the heart of the Ruhrgebiet that is actually not as grey as some of you might expect. In the contrary, after coal and steel industries have contracted and shifted to more environmentally friendly processes, this area has undergone a remarkable transformation. Notably, in 2010, Essen was the center of the European Capital of Culture, and in 2017, it is the European Green Capital.
Many scientific disciplines rely on crystallography, covering inter alia fields like materials sciences, geosciences, crystal structure determination, and protein crystallography. The University of Duisburg-Essen with its two campi at Duisburg and Essen (and a third campus for the University Hospital) has two central research units with direct relevance to crystallography: Nanosciences, as represented by the Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CeNIDE), and biological sciences, as represented by the Center for Biomedical Technology (ZMB). Both have supported the Annual Meeting. In the direct vicinity there are other major research institutions like the Universities at Bochum and Dortmund and a number of Max-Planck Institutes and Fraunhofer institutes, many of them relying on chemical, physical and biological crystallography.
A number of prominent Plenary Speakers have agreed to give presentations at our Annual Congress. We invite you to come to Essen in 2018, to contribute and to participate in an exciting conference in a stimulating environment. Join us for a memorable experience!

30 September–4 October 2013 Intermetallics 2013

Banz, Germany

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the upcoming Conference Intermetallics 2013, scheduled from 30 September–04 October, 2013 at the Educational Center Kloster Banz, Germany.
Facing an increasing demand for new materials with improved properties, intermetallic-based materials offer a promising perspective. A possible combination of high strength, low density and good corrosion resistance qualifies them for structural applications, specifically at high temperatures and in severe environments. As some intermetallic phases show unique properties like shape memory and thermo electric effects or have appealing magnetic properties they are also of interest for various functional applications. While Intermetallics today are well accepted as shape memory alloys they are only now – after three decades of exhaustive research and development – used for structural applications, i.e. in flying gas turbines.
The choice of local organisers and members of the international advisory board guarantees not only representation of all relevant topics but also a good balance between research and application. Topics of general importance will be dealt with in a single session in the morning, while current materials, such as γ-TiAl, iron aluminides, silicides or NiTi-shape memory alloys, or certain aspects of intermetallics will be the subject of two specialised parallel sessions in the afternoon. A special topical session will be devoted to powder metallurgical (PM) techniques that are currently employed for processing intermetallic-based materials. A high-profile poster session will be rounding off the conference.
The conference will take place at Kloster Banz near Bamberg. The cloister is situated in a remote place above the valley of the river Main. As a well-known educational centre it is an ideal place for conferences with its good infrastructure and relaxing atmosphere. In addition, being situated in the central part of Germany, it is easily accessible from Nuremberg and Frankfurt airports.

We are looking forward to your participation and would be delighted 
to meet you in Banz,


Your Intermetallics 2013 Congress Office

Macromolecular: To create a sustainable society, highly functional, environmentally friendly materials are required. This symposium focuses on the development of new sophisticated fusion materials and exploration of their optical, electrical, ionic, mechanical, sensing, biomedical, and energy functions. The essential feature of these materials is that they comprise a variety of fused organic and inorganic components. Their design can be inspired by the structures of biominerals consisting of inorganic substances such as calcium carbonate, silica, and calcium phosphate fused with biomacromolecules. The symposium will discuss latest strategies in the development of new bio-inspired synthetic materials that exhibit advanced functions mentioned above. For synthetic fusion materials, a variety of inorganic components and organic molecules such as functional polymers, liquid crystals, and amphiphilic molecules form precisely organized and harmonized structures and their syntheses utilize environmentally friendly processes. The fine control over nano- and micro-level hierarchical structures and interactions at interfaces is a key for construction of such new fusion materials. In this symposium, new directions in synthesis, properties, and applications of fusion materials are presented and discussed.

5–7 September 2016 1st South East Asia Conference on Crystal Engineering (SEACCE)

Department of Chemistry, University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Colombo, Sri Lanka

Three crystal engineering meetings, initially started as tri-nation (China-India-Singapore) series, were held in Singapore (2011), China (2012) and India (2014). The overall enthusiasm and interest these meeting generated over the years provided optimism for further expansion of crystal engineering within the region. To make the scientific exchanges more inclusive and participatory, and also in keeping with the theme of the International Year of Crystallography 2014 to "bringing nations together" with science, it is now felt that other countries in this region should be included as part of this initiative. Such expansion was felt to be essential for the propagation, popularization and growth of crystal engineering in this region. Thus, the theme of CIS was morphed as the South and East Asia Conference on Crystal Engineering, SEACCE in 2014.
