The official language of the workshop is English. The Croatian Association of Crystallographers organizes this workshop to mark the 2014 - UN proclamed international year of crystallography in Croatia. Six "hot topics" will be addressed during the intense four working days of the workshop:

1. Hot topics in macromolecular crystallography (by prof. dr. Elspeth Garman, University of Oxford, UK),

2. The whole is more than the sum of its parts (by prof. dr. Hans-Beat Buergi, University of Bern, Switzerland),

3. Charge density (by prof. dr. Dietmar Stalke, University of Goettingen, Germany),

4. Absolute structure and absolute configuration (by prof. dr. Howard Flack, University of Geneve, Switzerland),

5. Twinning in crystallography (by dr. Regine Herbst-Irmer, University of Goettingen, Germany), and

6. Advanced solutions from the Cambridge Structural Database (by Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre, UK).
