Re: IUCr congress - Teaching nominations and suggested symposia -CCT nominations for IUCr XXI

Dear Colleagues,

even though the list is getting long, I would like to suggest topics of:

Teaching the imperfect; disordered structures

Teaching physical/chemical properties

The fist suggestion is somewhat related and overlapping with the suggestion
for -Teaching modern concepts required for understanding incommensurate,
       non-periodic and magnetic crystallography
I would think that modern concepts have evolved regarding teaching the second
topic, especially with different applications of crystals in mind.
