Summer of Crystallography

We are very glad to announce the Summer of Crystallography which will take place in the beautiful small town and famous tourist resort of Bol, on the island of Brač, Croatia, in the Bluesun Hotel Elaphusa (4*), from September 21st to October 2nd, 2016. This project includes two international crystallographic meetings, to be held one just after the other. The event starts with the 24th Croatian-Slovenian Crystallographic Meeting (CSCM24), from September 21st to September 25th, 2016, which is jointly organized by the Croatian Crystallographic Association and the Slovenian Crystallographic Society, under the auspices of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. All the necessary information on the venue, scientific programme, plenary lecturers, abstract submission, registration procedure, social programme, deadlines, accommodation arrangement, arrival to Bol, can be found at the conference web site: All contributions will be presented orally. An interesting half-day excursion to the interior of the island of Brač will be organized for all participants and accompanying persons. It should be mentioned that there is no registration fee for this Meeting. Since 1992, every year crystallographers from different countries attend the annual Croatian-Slovenian / Slovenian-Croatian Crystallographic Meetings, alternatively in Croatia and Slovenia, to present their work and exchange ideas in multiple areas of research involving crystallography. Most of the participants of the previous meetings have expressed their opinion that these meetings have been very successful in all aspects, scientifically and socially, offering a friendly and domestic atmosphere. CSCM24 is followed by the 3rd European Crystallography School (ECS3), from September 25th to October 2nd, 2016. The ECS3 is organized by the Croatian Association of Crystallographers and the European Crystallographic Association. All details about the programme, registration, accommodation and important dates of the ECS3 can be found on the web site After the 29th European Crystallographic Meeting, Rovinj 2015, Croatian crystallographers are very much looking forward to hosting once again colleagues from across the globe. On behalf of the Croatian Crystallographic Association and the Slovenian Crystallographic Society as well as the Croatian Association of Crystallographers, it is our pleasure to invite our old friends, previous participants as well as newcomers, and especially young scientists, to attend the events of the Summer of Crystallography in Bol. We do hope that you will keep your stay in Bol and in Croatia in a nice memory. 22.11.2013. Croatian Association of Crystallographers proudly announces the workshop “Hot Topics in Contemporary Crystallography” to be held in Šibenik, Croatia, from May, 10th to 15th, 2014. Endowed and highly motivated PhD students, postdocs, and other young crystallographers are welcome to apply. Thanks to the generosity of our numerous supporters we shall cover most of the expenses related to the workshop to all invited participants.

However, the number of participants is strictly limited. So, don’t waste your time. The deadline for application is February, 0st, 2014. Late or incomplete applications will not be taken into consideration. We’ll have excellent lecturers and tutors, friendly atmosphere and beautiful surroundings on one of the most beautiful spots on the majestic Croatian Adriatic coast. Please visit the website of the workshop for more: Radionica “Hot Topics in Contemporary Crystallography” održat će se, od 10. do 15. svibnja 2014 u hotelskom kompleksu “Solaris” nadomak Šibenika, u organizaciji Hrvatske Udruge Kristalografa (HUK). HUK se, organizacijom ove radionice, pridružuje obilježavanju Svjetske godine kristalografije – 2014. Na radionici će, kao predavači i moderatori sudjelovati neka od najvažnijih imena suvremene europske kristalografije – prof. Elspeth Garman sa Sveučilišta u Oxfordu, prof. Howard Flack sa Sveučilišta u Ženevi, prof. Hans-Beat Buergi sa Sveučilišta u Bernu, te prof. Dietmar Stalke i Dr. Regine Herbst-Irmer sa Sveučilišta u Goettingenu. Uz njih, svoje će najnovije proizvode predstaviti i najveća baza kristalografskih podataka na svijetu – Cambridge Structural Database (CSD). Izdavač CSD-a, Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre, je jedan od donatora Radionice. Na Radionici očekujemo sudjelovanje 20 visokomotiviranih talentiranih mladih znanstvenika koji rade u području kristalografije i srodnih disciplina. Zahvaljujući potpori brojnih privatnih sponzora i donatora, kao i institucionalnoj potpori MZOS-a RH, Međunarodne udruge kristalografa te
Europske kristalografske zajednice, organizatori će pokriti većinu troškova sudjelovanja na Radionici svim pozvanim sudionicima. Veselimo se vašem dolasku.
