Hot Topics in Contemporary Crystallography

Start Date 10th May 2014
End Date 16th May 2014

The workshop Hot Topics in Contemporary Crystallography will take place in Hotel Jakov, in the Solaris beach resort, near Šibenik, Croatia, from May, 10th to May, 15th, 2014. The official language of the workshop is English.

The Croatian Association of Crystallographers organizes this workshop to mark the 2014 - UN proclamed international year of crystallography in Croatia. Six "hot topics" will be addressed during the intense four working days of the workshop:

  1. Hot topics in macromolecular crystallography (by prof. dr. Elspeth Garman, University of Oxford, UK),
  2. The whole is more than the sum of its parts (by prof. dr. Hans-Beat Buergi, University of Bern, Switzerland),
  3. Charge density (by prof. dr. Dietmar Stalke, University of Goettingen, Germany),
  4. Absolute structure and absolute configuration (by prof. dr. Howard Flack, University of Geneve, Switzerland),
  5. Twinning in crystallography (by dr. Regine Herbst-Irmer, University of Goettingen, Germany), and
  6. Advanced solutions from the Cambridge Structural Database (by Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre, UK).
The workshop aims at:
  • Promotion of excellence and innovation in crystallography,
  • Transfer of state-of-the-art knowledge and know-how to the most talented and motivated PhD students and postdocs in crystallography and related disciplines,
  • Popularization of crystallography, and
  • Celebration of the International Year of Crystallography (2014) in Croatia.
Participants, who will be chosen among the highly motivated applilcants - young scientists working in crystallography and related fields, will be invited to present their own research via short (10 to 15 mins) talks or on posters. A small number of participants invited to the workshop (27) will give a chance to young crystallographers to share their ideas and experience among them, as well as to discuss their work and problems they encounter with the experienced senior scientists who will be attending the workshop as lecturers or tutors.
