5th European Crystallographic School

8 July 2018 12:30 - 14 July 2018 12:30, Stellenbosch, South Africa

The 5th European Crystallographic School will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa, 8-14 July 2018 under the auspices of the European Crystallographic Association, International Union of Crystallography and the South African Crystallographic Society.

The aim of the school is to give attendees a fundamental understanding of the principles underpinning crystallography through a combination of lectures and hands-on tutorials. We will begin by covering the basic principles of point groups, space groups, crystallisation, data collection, and structure refinement from a theoretical perspective. Thereafter, participants will separate into two groups to apply this knowledge to either biological crystallography or materials science.

The school will be held on the picturesque campus of Stellenbosch University, which is situated in the heart of the historical town of Stellenbosch, a popular tourist destination surrounded by mountains and vineyards. It is well-known for the excellent locally-produced wine, good food and a range of modern art galleries. Also nearby is Cape Town, a vibrant, cosmopolitan city world renowned for the iconic Table Mountain and beautiful beaches inhabited by penguins!

We look forward to welcoming you to Stellenbosch in July 2018!
