2015 ACA Annual Meeting - American Crystallographic Association
The ACA meeting is an annual event providing scientists from a wide variety of backgrounds the opportunity to exchange cutting edge ideas and techniques in multiple areas of research. Each meeting highlights various aspects of crystallography and demonstrates their significance to the greater scientific community. Vendors display the latest technology at the exhibit show.
Topics including protein structure and drug design, materials research and engineering, among others. Scientific sessions are organized by the twelve Scientific Interest Groups (SIGs) within the Association: Biological Macromolecules, Fiber Diffraction, General Interest, Industrial, Materials Science, Neutron Scattering, Powder Diffraction, Service Crystallography, Small Angle Scattering, Small Molecules, Synchrotron Radiation, and Young Scientists. Some sessions are jointly sponsored, while other are singularly organized.
Special award symposium acknowledge outstanding achievement in crystallography. Various annual awards are presented to both mature and early career scientists.
About the ACA:
The American Crystallographic Association, Inc. is a non-profit, scientific organization of over 2,200 members in more than 60 countries. ACA was founded in 1949 through a merger of the American Society for X-Ray and Electron Diffraction (ASXRED) and the Crystallographic Society of America (CSA). The objective of the ACA is to promote interactions among scientists who study the structure of matter at atomic (or near atomic) resolution. These interactions will advance experimental and computational aspects of crystallography and diffraction. Understanding the nature of the forces that both control and result from the molecular and atomic arrangements in matter will help shed light on chemical interactions in nature and can therefore lead to cures for disease.
There may be many networking opportunities at the 2015 ACA Annual Meeting - American Crystallographic Association. Find out more in the event details below.
