The 2012 Gordon Research Conference on Crystal Engineering will be held in the Waterville Valley Resort, New Hampshire, USA from 10–15th June 2012.
The conference is chaired by Robin D. Rogers alongside CrystEngComm Associate Editor, Christer Aakeröy and Mike Zaworotko who are vice chairing). Sessions will include Nucleation, Crystal Growth, and Solid State Reactivity; Polymorphism and Crystal Structure Prediction; and Catalysis in Porous Materials. Susan Bourne (University of Cape Town), Lee Cronin (University of Glasgow), Pierangelo Metrangolo (Politecnico di Milano) and Gautam Desiraju (Indian Institute of Science) have been invited to speak. Read my recent interview with Professor Desiraju here…
There will be a Crystal Engineering Gordon Research Seminar before the conference on 9–10th June, focusing on the design, synthesis, and applications of metal–organic materials and coordination polymers. These seminars are a forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new ideas. The deadline for registration for this seminar is 12th May 2012.
The application deadline for the conference is 13th May 2012. CrystEngComm Deputy Editor, Fiona McKenzie, is planning to attend and would love to meet you there if you are too – please let her know.
