To recognise the outstanding achievements of the late Dr Andrew Parkin in his roles as scientist and teacher, the YCG holds an annual Parkin Lecture at the YCG satellite meeting. The YCG satellite directly precedes the BCA Spring Meeting, which this year takes place on the 6 – 9 April 2020 at the University of Leeds. The prize lecture is awarded to a Young Crystallographer who has been recognised for outstanding contributions to promoting science, raising public awareness of science, teaching crystallography/science or showing originality in outreach and teaching activities.
Friday 31st of January is the deadline for nominations by peers, supervisors, or self-nomination. If you are, or know someone who is deserving of this award, please come forward! Full details can be found here.
Please send your nominations to [email protected]

At the ECM this summer in Basel there will be a Science Slam taking place during the meeting!
For this you will have three minutes to present your research to a large public, in an entertaining way. You can use powerpoint or other supports – as you wish but remember, you have only 3 minuets so make them count! The decision will be taken by the public using an applaudimeter… and the winner will win a prize. For inspiration checkout the Famelab YouTube channel.
