Crystallographers everywhere have lots of reasons to celebrate in the years 2012-2014 for the centennial of Laue and the Braggs’ discoveries. Already this year there have been conferences held to highlight Laue’s contributions, such as the Laue Day held during the 20th Annual Meeting of the German Crystallographic Society. There will be many events in 2012-2013 to celebrate the work of the Braggs’, including the Bragg Symposium being held during the AsCA 12/CRYSTAL28 meeting in Adelaide, Australia in December 2012, and exhibitions at the European Crystallographic Meeting 2013 in Warwick, UK. The IUCr recently announced that 2014 has now been officially designated ‘International Year of Crystallography‘ by the United Nations, and so we can be sure the celebrations will continue through to the next IUCr Congress in Montréal and beyond!
