38th National Seminar On Crystallography will focus on new perspectives to identify new challenges and breakthroughs in the field of Crystallography. The seminar is an annual event organized in order to provide a perfect platform for the Indian Crystallographers to meet in one place to discuss the subject crystallography from traditional to emerging areas. The seminar will provide an excellent opportunity to the exchange of knowledge and show case of latest inventions. It aims to bring in the next generation researchers in contact with the subject experts from academia, R & D laboratories and industries. The most leading crystallographers covering all areas of crystallography have been carefully selected by the Organizing Committee to deliver Public, Plenary, Keynote and Invited Talks.
The topics of interests for the seminar include:
Instrumentation and Experimental Techniques, Methods for Structure Determination, Computers in Analysis, Molecular Modelling and Molecular Design, Crystallography of Biological Macromolecules, Crystallography of Biological Small Molecules, Crystallography of Organic Compounds, Crystallography of Organometallic, Coordination and Main Group Compounds, Structure/Property Relationships, Crystal Engineering, Inorganic Crystallography and Geosciences, Crystallography in Material Science, Surfaces, Interfaces, Liquids and Thin Films, Fibre Diffraction, Charge, Spin and Momentum Density, Diffraction Physics and Optics, Mineral Synthesis, Crystal Growth: Techniques, Instrumentation and Applications, Characterization of Defects, Microstructures and Textures, Electron Microscopy, Electron Diffraction, Non-Ambient Conditions, Symmetry and its Generalizations, A periodic and Incommensurate Structures, Crystallographic Topology, Databases, Industrial Crystallography, Crystallographic Teaching, The History of Crystallography & Art, Cultural Heritage, Archaeology and Crystallography.
