Description India will host the XXIV Congress & General Assembly of the International Union of Crystallography 2017 from 21st to 28th August 2017 with optional tours on the 29th. We extend a warm welcome to all crystallographers across the world for the very first time to our ancient and intriguing nation!

An exciting and informative scientific programme that is both broad and varied, encompassing plenary lectures, keynote lectures, microsymposia, poster presentations, commercial exhibits, special interest group meetings, official meetings of the IUCr and the General Assembly sessions is planned.

The IUCr 2017 will be held in Hyderabad, a modern city of 8 million people that retains its old world charm. Originally the capital of gracious and opulent royalty, the city has now gained international prominence as an important software and pharmaceutical hub. The iconic symbol of the city is the Charminar or four minarets, which draws its inspiration from the tetragonal crystal system. It is the central motif of our logo for IUCr 2017. Hyderabad boasts of a futuristic airport with a wide range of international and domestic connections, through hubs like Singapore, Dubai, Qatar and Abu Dhabi. The Congress venue, Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC), is a state-of-the-art centre, on par with the best Congress destinations around the world and equipped with the best technological, communication, digital and audio-visual tools. The entire crystallography fraternity in India is excited about this event and have pledged their support to make the conference a wonderful success. We are sure that IUCr 2017 at Hyderabad will be an experience to remember for all of us.

Incredible India is known for the warmth and hospitality of its people and diversity of nature, culture and language. We offer you a wide range of tourism activities to see and enjoy – including the historic Charminar of Hyderabad, the imposing palaces of Mysore, the pristine beaches of Kerala and many other attractive destinations. Needless to say, the Taj Mahal continues to mesmerise tourists from near and far. And of course, the mouth-watering array of cuisines and delicacies that we are renowned for! We are sure the hospitality of the East and the ambience of Hyderabad will make the 2017 Congress a memorable event. Come feast yourself on the riches of Hyderabad!
