2nd ICSU/IUPAC Workshop on Crystal Engineering

The 2nd ICSU/IUPAC Workshop on Crystal Engineering will be held in Como, Italy on August 30-September 1, 2015.

The Chairmen of the Workshop, Pierangelo Metrangolo and Giuseppe Resnati, invite you to participate in this memorable event.

2nd ICSU/IUPAC Workshop on Crystal EngineeringThis international workshop will also serve as the mid-term meeting of the ICSU project CONvINCE “CONcepts and termINology in Crystal Engineering” and of the IUPAC project no. 2012-044-1-100 “Basic Terminology of Crystal Engineering”. The objectives of these projects are to produce guidelines for terminology in the area of crystal engineering.

The program of the workshop will comprise invited lectures by internationally renowned leaders in the field. Poster presentations are also scheduled and opportunities are planned for young scientists’ networking with both peers and recognized leaders in the field.

Participation is free and limited to a maximum number of 150 attendees, which will be selected on a first come first served basis.

The deadline for registration and abstract submission is June 30, 2015.

IUPAC project meeting and workshop: Topology representations in coordination networks, MOFs and other crystalline materials

A follow up to the IUPAC project on the somewhat controversial issue on terminology of metal-organic frameworks and coordination polymers deals with the question of how we describe and communicate the structures of MOFs, PCPs and related network forming compounds.

The use of topology is very efficient in describing, disseminating and even designing such new materials, and the IUPAC task group deals with the project: Terminology guidelines and database issues for topology representations in coordination networks, metal-organic frameworks and other crystalline materials. As it turns out, network topology is also important, albeit sadly neglected, for the group 14 allotropes and even polymorphs of water.

The task group invite all who are interested to a workshop in Samara, Russia 21-23 May 2015 under the devise ”Describe, Disseminate and Design”. The workshop will feature talks by prominent scientist highlighting the network topology approach from many different angles, from mathematics to chemical synthesis and will also help the task group to gather viewpoints from the community. There will also be a poster session.

You can register and submit an abstract until 30th April 2015.

If you are interested but can’t make it, why not send thoughts directly to the project chair, Lars Öhrström or on twitter @larsohrstrom #IUPACmof2

Communicating Crystallography

The Chemical Crystallography Group of the British Crystallographic Association recently held its 2014 autumn meeting — “Communicating Crystallography” — in conjunction with the Royal Society of Chemistry, on 19th November 2014 at Burlington House, London.

With 2014 being the UNESCO International Year of Crystallography, there was no better time to have a meeting to showcase and discuss crystallography-based outreach and education.

Three sessions of talks encompassed the theme of “Communicating Crystallography” from educational, publishing and data presentation points of view. The session on publishing was delivered by the Royal Society of Chemistry and showed how crystallography (and chemistry) can be disseminated through a range of channels — journals, databases and social media.

Topics covered during the sessions included: outreach to students and the general public; communication of results in journals, databases and social media; and curation of data. The insights gained from the meeting have relevance well beyond the confines of chemical crystallography.

The speakers and the audience were excellently engaged, creating a very successful and enjoyable meeting. Thanks go to all involved!
