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
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

Science City, Kolkata, India
15–20 December 2015 The International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
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.

28 March–1 April 2016 2016 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit: Symposium SM1: Liquid Crystalline Materials—Displays and Beyond
Phoenix, Arizona, USA
Liquid crystals are the pervasive display technology in devices ranging from wristwatches to ultra-high resolution televisions. In the last century, this special class of matter has made a remarkable transition from scientific curiosity to ubiquitous to everyday life. The distinctive properties that enable the utility of liquid crystals in displays has also motivated extensive research relating to the general topics of optics (photonics), mechanics, and biomedicine. The utilization of liquid crystals in these areas are examining a diverse range of materials including low-molar mass, polymeric, and composites thereof and range from molecular synthesis to device physics. The goal of this symposium is to contextualize recent advances in liquid crystalline materials with a particular emphasis on research extending the utility of these materials beyond displays into applications such as artificial muscles, microfluidics (lab on chip), chem-bio sensors, optical elements, nanofabrication, smart windows, metamaterials, mechanical actuators, and energy saving/generation/harvesting.
4–7 April 2016 BCA Spring Meeting 2016
The University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK
With the 2nd century of X-ray diffraction now well underway, the BCA 2016 Spring Meeting programme will take stock of the current state-of-the-art and continue to look towards the future.
The Programme Committee have been working hard, and we already have the majority of Plenary and several Keynote speakers in place, spanning a diverse range of subject matter across the four subject groups. The 2016 BCA Prize Lecture will be given by Professor Christer Aakeröy and the Lonsdale Lecture by Professor Arwen Pearson.
The meeting will follow a similar session format to last year, with Plenaries for each subject group, parallel sessions and a range of Workshops, allowing plenty of choice for delegates. Each of the parallel sessions will incorporate a Keynote plus three, rather than two, contributed lectures, in order to allow more opportunities for speakers, in particular younger colleagues.
If your talk doesn’t fit with the proposed Group Sessions, don’t panic! There will be an additional ‘Ad hoc’ session, with content to be chosen from submitted abstracts. Further information, including key dates, scientific programme etc. will be added as things progress.
On behalf of the Programme Committee and Organisers I’d like to welcome you to Nottingham, and look forward to a feast of world-class crystallography!

Recent years have seen dramatic successes in providing ‘atomic level views’ of important transient phenomena in materials, molecular and even biomolecular systems. These landmark studies were enabled by breakthroughs in high time-resolution x-ray and electron diffraction, crystallography, spectroscopy and imaging.
The future of this emerging field looks incredibly bright, with major advances in electron source intensity and coherence as well dramatic new capabilities from X-ray free-electron lasers. Along with new methods to take advantage of these sources, we have new disruptive technologies that are driving this field. The Banff Meeting in Structural Dynamics was founded to provide the perfect forum to disseminate the latest spectacular developments in opening up new vistas with atomic clarity. The first four meetings held in 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015 were a resounding success and will be continued to provide an opportunity to meet and discuss current problems and chart a course for further successes.
