Eighth Asian Crystallographic Association Conference (AsCA '07)

Start Date 4th Nov 2007
End Date 7th Nov 2007


Dear Colleagues:

You are cordially invited to participate in the 8th Conference of the Asian Crystallographic Association, AsCA'07, which will be held at the Howard International House in Taipei, Taiwan from November 4th to 7th, 2007. This conference is the eighth of the conference series on crystallography in Asia since its inauguration in Singapore in 1992, which intends to cover all aspects of crystallography, ranging from inorganic and organic small molecules to macromolecular proteins, viruses, and membrane proteins; from crystal growth to protein engineering; from structural chemistry and material science to nanoscience and nanotechnology; from crystal structure, proteomics, and genomics, to drug design; from diffraction physics and ray optics to the applications of electron, neutron, and synchrotron X-ray photons for structural investigations, etc..

Taipei is situated in a basin in northern Taiwan. The city blends traditional culture and cosmopolitan life. The metropolitan Taipei is the cultural, commercial, finance, and educational centers of Taiwan. There are more than thirty universities and colleges around. In the suburbs, places of historic interest and scenic beauty are worth visiting, such as National Palace Museum, Long-San Temple, Taipei Botanical Garden, Yangmingshan National Park, Zhishan Cultural and Ecological Garden, Hot Springs Area, Beitou Hot Spring Museum, Folk Arts Museum, and the Tower 101, among many other attractions.

We hope that the conference will provide an excellent platform for efficient exchange in many branches of sciences relating to crystallography. And your participation will guarantee the success of the conference.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Taipei.
