2016 Annual Meeting

Denver, Colorado, 22-26 July, 2016

The 66th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association (ACA) will be held in Denver, Colorado, 22-26 July, 2016. The transactions symposium will highlight Structural Dynamics across the disciplines represented by the ACA. The rest of the meeting will continue to reflect the wide reach of crystallographic research, with sessions on sources, methods and results. These include opportunities from new and improved instrumentation, single-/multiple-crystal, powder and solution methods, and hot structural results. There will be sessions highlighting those results requiring complementary techniques, including cryo-electromicroscopy. Invited speakers include 2016's honorees, Jason Benedict (SUNY Buffalo), Axel Brunger (Stanford U.), Elspeth Garman (U. of Oxford) and Benno Schoenborn (Los Alamos National Lab.).

The meeting will include a strong educational component for early career scientists, with specific talks designed to introduce research areas in addition to presenting results. Related evening sessions include a mixer, career fair, career development, and diversity in the laboratory. The conference will end with a closing banquet and the award of poster prizes for the best presentations. We hope to see you in 2016.

Chairs: Amy Sarjeant and Edward Snell
