BCA Spring Meeting

07 Apr 2014 - 10 Apr 2014 - Loughborough, UK

The Spring meeting will follow the successful format used in recent years with the traditional Young Crystallographers’ satellite meeting on Monday 7th April followed by the main meeting starting at lunchtime on Tuesday 8th April with the final session finishing at lunchtime on Thursday 10th April.

Crystallography as a field of research has reached its centenary and 2014 has been designated by UNESCO as the International Year of Crystallography. The theme of the meeting is in tune with these milestones and will be “Crystallography @ 100: Looking to the future, learning from the past.” The meeting logo incorporates an image of the X-ray diffraction pattern of NaCl reported by W. L. Bragg in the charmingly titled 1913 paper “The Structure of Some Crystals as Indicated by their Diffraction of X-rays”
