RSC Advances was pleased  to sponsor the 20th International Conference on the Chemistry of the Organic Solid State (ICCOSS XX), held on the 25-30 June 2011 in Bangalore, India.

The conference gave a broad overview of the recent progress in all aspects of organic solid state chemistry and generated productive discussions. Professor T N Guru Row, Associate Editor for RSC Advances and one of the organisers of the conference, described the meeting as a great success and a great opportunity for well-respected national and international leaders in the field of organic solid states to get together to discuss the advances in this area.

Professor Christer Aakeroy, Kansas State University, USA, and Associate Editor for our sister journal CrystEngComm, was the chair of the poster prize committee. The RSC Advances poster prizes were awarded to two young participants (see pictures below) at the conference namely:
