School of Advanced Studies in Crystallization and Crystallography for Latin America


The School of Advanced Studies in Crystallization and Crystallography for Latin America (ECRISLA) sponsored by the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) and promoted by the International Organization of Crystal Growth (IOCG) is addressed to graduate students from Brazil and Latin America. These areas of knowledge, crystallization and crystallography are complementary, the event is an important opportunity to deepen their knowledge in an integrated manner. ECRISLA want to create a space for study, discussion and confraternization among teachers, internationally recognized experts, and students. To this end, national and international speakers will address various topics of theoretical and practical methods of crystallization and crystallography studies applied to structure determination of organic compounds and bioinorganic, the crystallization of drugs, materials science and nanotechnology. ECRISLA is structured in two distinct modules: Module 1: Crystallization and Module2: Crystallography. The number of entries for the event will be limited, and partial scholarship can be given to a limited number of students. ECRISLA School will be held in Florianopolis (SantaCatarina, Brazil) 13 - 18 November (Module 1) and 21 - 25 November (Module 2) at the campus of Universidade Federal de SantaCatarina (UFSC) and at the Hotel Maria Mar.
