Congratulations to CrystEngComm prize winners: Bhupinder Sandhu, Yue Qiu and Shane Nichols. They were awarded their prizes at the Midwest Organic Solid State Chemistry Symposium XXVII (MOSSCS) which took place at Kansas State University, USA from the 9th – 10th June 2017. CrystEngComm Associate Editor Christer Aakeroy was on hand to present their certificates.

The MOSSCS symposium provides opportunities for the scientific community to exchange ideas and research results on the organic solid state in a relaxed environment. The symposium involves presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral associates as well as invited lectures on topics of current interest.

Further information about the symposium can be found on their website.

Poster prizes at IUCr Congress 2011

Congratulations to Sajesh Thomas from Bangalore, India and Christophe Vande Velde based in Antwerp in Belgium, recent winners of the CrystEngComm poster prizes at the IUCr Congress in Madrid which took place from the 22-30 August this year.

The prizes were presented to Sajesh and Christophe by CrystEngComm Advisory Board member Catalina Ruiz Perez. The winners each received an RSC book, a subscription to CrystEngComm and a CrystEngComm poster prize certificate.

Sajesh’s poster was entitled ‘Observation of a Conserved ‘Selenium Bond Synthon’ Involving Se…O Interaction’ and Christophe presented a poster on ‘Non-centrosymmetric Molecules – Centrosymmetric Structure?’

I was  also in attendance at this busy  meeting packed with excellent posters and talks on a huge range of topics from the field of crystal engineering and crystallography. I had a fantastic time at this well organised congress and arrived back with some IUCr mugs to remind me of the conference!  CrystEngComm Webwriter Claire Murray was also in beautiful Madrid at the event so look out for her report on her congress experience – coming soon to the CrystEngComm blog……
