International Year of Crystallography - 2014
|UNESCO has designated 2014 as the International Year of Crystallography. Events will be held throughout the year, with the climax at the IUCr's Congress and General Assembly in Montreal, Canada.|
|I am currently involved with several different Crystallographic organisations.
The principal organisation involved with education and promotion of
Crystallography within the British Isles is the
British Crystallographic Association.
It caters for Crystallography in different fields of science -
Industrial Crystallography and
Physical Crystallography. The interests of
Young Crystallographers in all these disciplines are catered
for in their own Group.
This year's BCA meeting was held at the University of Loughborough from 7th - 10th April 2014.
Next year's Annual BCA Meeting will be held at the University of York from Monday 30th March - Thursday 2nd April 2015
Each of the Groups organises their own meetings in the Autumn and Winter; these meetings address particular issues of current importance and interest.
Membership of the BCA entitles the member to reduced rates of attendance at meetings of both the BCA and of all its Groups; student and post-doctoral members can apply for generous bursaries to help cover the cost of attending relevant meetings both in the UK and abroad.
In Europe and Africa, the regional interests of Crystallography come within the
purview of the European Crystallographic
Association. The ECA organizes a meeting every year in which there is no
Last year's European Crystallographic Meeting (ECM28) was held at Warwick University in England.
There is no ECM this year; the next will be held in 2015 in Rovinj, Croatia from Sunday 23rd - Friday 28th August.
I am currently the Chairman of the ECA's Special Interest Group in Crystallographic Computing - "SIG9" or "ECACOMSIG", and am looking after their web-pages, which have some information about activities and sources of crystallographic software.
ECACOMSIG held a workshop on an Introduction to Software Development for Crystallographers prior to ECM28. We are planning a similar event associated with ECM29 in Rovinj in August 2015.
|The Global umbrella organization for the National and Regional Crystallographic Associations is the International Union of Crystallography, which has operated since 1948. As well as holding a Congress and General Assembly every three years (the last was held in Montreal, Canada, from 5th - 12th August 2014, and the next will be in Hyderabad, India, from 21st - 29th August 2017 ), the IUCr publishes scientific journals and books on the topic.|
