BACG 2014: 45th Annual Conference of the British Association for Crystal Growth

Start Date 13th Jul 2014
End Date 15th Jul 2014

The 2014 Annual Conference of the BACG will be hosted by the University of Leeds, which is the home of the pioneering work underpinning the discipline of X-ray crystallography undertaken by William Henry Bragg and his son, William Lawrence Bragg in 1912-13, and for which they were jointly awarded a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1915. This conference will provide a forum for the exchange of scientific/technological ideas and findings amongst researchers from the UK and overseas focusing on the following topics. Internationally renowned researchers, both from academia and industry, will deliver a series of stimulating lectures. 

Conference topics:

  • Crystallisation Modelling Across Length Scales
  • Crystallisation for Product Formulation
  • Fundamentals of Nucleation and Crystal Growth
  • Ice Nucleation and Crystallisation
  • Industrial Crystallisation Processes
