All events for this Day

Event Name

2nd Pan African Conference on Crystallography (PCCr-2)

Start Date 28th Jan 2019
End Date 2nd Feb 2019

This conference follows a successful one held in 2016 in Cameroon and
aims at bringing together African crystallographers, mineralogists,
structural scientists and biologists to increase awareness of
crystallography and improve the educational opportunities for African
researchers and students of all levels. The variety of activities will
provide opportunities to engage with the scientific community, from
expert crystallographers to young researchers and students of all ages,
as well as government representatives and policy-makers in Ghana.  Other
African Scientists from North, Egypt, to the South, South Africa using,
practicing and/or developing crystallographic methods (X-ray, neutrons,
electron diffraction, NMR and other spectroscopies, solid state
calculations) will also meet to build a network of African academics,
scientists and engineers which should result in the launch of the
African Crystallography Association. Among the 300 expected attendees,
recognized scientists from all over the world will also be invited and
will attend the meeting. This conference will also be specially graced
by Professor Sir Tom Blundell, the 2013 Nobel Prize laureate in
