Chemical Crystallography @ Central Facilities: BCA CCG Autumn Meeting 2018

Registration is now live for this year’s BCA CCG Autumn meeting at Queen’s University Belfast on 31st October 2018.
This year’s meeting will be focused on the topic of “Chemical Crystallography @ Central Facilities”. Register here for this exciting one-day meeting!

Opportunities for student and ECR attendees:

  • Student poster session. This year’s meeting will include a lunchtime student poster session, ensuring lots of opportunities for student to get experience of presenting their research in a friendly atmosphere. Student attendees who wish to present a poster during the lunchtime poster session should email their poster title to Katharina Edkins ([email protected]) no later than 5pm on 26th October 2018.
  • Early Career travel bursaries. Thanks to our fantastic meeting sponsors, there will be the opportunity for early-career researchers presenting at the meeting to receive a small bursary contribution towards their travel expenses. Please contact Katharina Edkins ([email protected]) for further information.

With a strong variety of talks from scientists working with Central Facilities across the UK, Europe and the USA in areas including synchrotron, neutron, laser spectroscopy and computational research, the meeting will be of broad interest for researchers and students in Chemical Crystallography.

There will also be a lunchtime poster session and prizes with plenty of opportunities for student participation and networking.

ECM31 – European Young Crystallographers Satellite Meeting

Attending ECM31 in Oviedo this summer? Then come along to the European Young Crystallographers satellite meeting!

At this event, early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their work and socialise with their peers in an informal and friendly environment.

Oral and poster presentations from all aspects of crystallography will ensure that there is something for everyone’s interests!

Where: ECM31 venue.
When: 22 August, 2018
Registration: The registration fee is 20 €. Please login the user area using your ECM31 account (e-mail address and password) to register for this satellite.
