U.S. National Committee for Crystallography
IUCr 2014 Congress and General Assembly The U.S. National Committee for Crystallography (USNC/Cr) would like to encourage participation in the 2014 Congress and General Assembly of the International Union of Crystallography. The Congress and General Assembly will take place at the Palais des congrès de Montréal located in Montréal, Québec, Canada. The Scientific Program has already been defined and an extremely robust offering of presentations is anticipated. More event details can be found on the 2014 IUCr Congress and General Assembly website.
IUCr 2014 Travel Fellowships Deadline: April 10, 2014 The USNC/Cr is providing partial travel support for the IUCr 2014 Congress in Montreal, Canada to undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, untenured faculty, and other recent graduates employed in any of the crystallographic, diffraction, and imaging sciences affiliated with the IUCr. For more details on the application process, please consult the Fellowship Flyer (PDF document)
International Year of Crystallography: 2014 In 1912 Max von Laue showed that X-rays were diffracted by crystals, and in 1913 W. H. and W. L. Bragg demonstrated that the diffraction of X-rays can be used to determine the positions of atoms within a crystal. These groundbreaking experiments mark the birth of modern crystallography. The International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) is marking the centennial of these events by declaring 2014 the International Year of Crystallography (IYCr2014). For more information, please visit the International Year of Crystallography website.
