Travel Awards 2019
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winners of the Crystals Travel Awards 2019. Two awards were granted to:
• Mr. Daniel Adam Decato, Ph.D. student at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Montana, Missoula, MT, USA.
• Dr. Haegyeom Kim, Postdoctoral Fellow at Materials Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, CA, USA.
Mr. Daniel Adam Decato is a Ph.D student in organic chemistry at the University of Montana, Missoula, USA (in the laboratory of Professor Orion Berryman). His research focuses on fundamental and functional aspects of the halogen bond, with a recent focus on the synergy between hydrogen and halogen bonds. He will attend the 1st International Conference on Noncovalent Interactions (ICNI) held on 2–6 September 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Dr. Haegyeom Kim is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Materials Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, USA. His research is related to the design and development of energy storage materials, mainly focused beyond Li ion batteries. He will attend the conference the 22nd Solid State Ionics (SSI-22) conference held on 16–21 June 2019 in PyeongChang, Korea.
Both recipients were each awarded 800 Swiss francs towards their travel expenses to attend the conferences in 2019. We congratulate the winners on their accomplishments.
We would like to thank all the applicants for contributing with their highquality submissions, and the Evaluation Committee members for reviewing the numerous applications.

Travel Award 2018
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Crystals Travel Awards. It has been granted to: Dr. Wenhao Sun, a postdoctoral researcher at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, USA. His work involves developing new thermodynamic frameworks and density functional theory (DFT)-based tools to investigate solid-aqueous phase equilibria at the nanoscale, competitive nucleation, and constrained equilibria.

Travel Awards 2017
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Crystals Travel Awards. These have been granted to:
Dr. Benjamin Frandsen, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, USA. His work is focused on magnetic pair distribution function analysis of diffuse magnetic scattering.
Dr. Matthew Dunstan, a research fellow at the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK. His work is focused on harnessing the power of large databases of computationally determined structures of materials, to predict new candidates for use in carbon capture and storage (CCS) applications, in particular on materialsthat are able to reversibly release and recover oxygen from their structure.
