The organizersd have asked me to call your attention to this event.

The Pittsburgh Diffraction Conference, 2000.

	The 58th annual conference will be held Thursday through Saturday, 
October 26-28 at the Pittsburgh Airport Holiday Inn.

National Lab) have organized a symposium on X-ray and neutron small angle 
scattering. Speakers will include Dmitri Svergun (EMBL-Hamburg), Tom 
Russell ( U. Mass., Amherst), Lois Pollack (Cornell Univ.), Martin 
Caffrey (Ohio State Univ.), Cyrus Safinya, Roberto Triolo (Univ. of 
Palermo), P. Thiyagarajan (Argonne Nat. Lab), John Barker (NIST), J. Lal

	Nominations are requested for the Sidhu Award ($500) which is made for 
an outstanding contribution to diffraction or crystallography.  
Nominations, consisting of cv for the candidate and sponsoring letter(s), 
should be sent to Bryan Craven by September 20.  The awardee, who must 
have obtained the PhD after September, 1995, will be invited to give a
