CrystEngComm at the 2nd Southeast Asian Conference on Crystal Engineering

This August the 2nd Southeast Asian Conference on Crystal Engineering (SEACCE-2) was held at Sunway University, Malaysia.

Hosted by Professor Edward R.T. Tiekink, Head the Research Centre for Crystalline Materials at Sunway, the event aims to bring together researchers from Southeast Asian Nations, along with China and India, to discuss recent advances from across the fields of crystallography, crystal engineering, supramolecular chemistry, and more! Over 100 delegates participated in the activities with good representation from Thailand, India, The People’s Republic of China, Singapore, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and hosts Malaysia. Featuring internationally renowned keynote speakers Gautam Desiraju, Chen Xiao-Ming and Jagadese J. Vittal as well as submitted talks and poster presentations, the conference gave emerging investigators and students to network with some of the leaders in the field.
