We are pleased to announce that in 2018, from June 25 to June 28, the third joint conference of the Italian Crystallographic Association (AIC) and of the Italian Synchrotron Radiation Society (SILS) will be held in Rome.

The program selected by the Scientific Committee will encourage the participation and contacts between members of the two associations involved, enabling ideas exchange in scientific fields concerning the study of condensed matter properties, such as Crystal Growth, Nanoscience, Methods and Techniques for the determination of Atomic, Electronic and Vibrational Structures, Molecular Recognition, Polymer and Materials Science, Molecular Medicine and Structural Biology.

About the Conference

Crystallographic methods and synchtrotron radiation are powerful for the analysis of biological macromolecules and materials. Thus, we are confident that Rome will be the venue in which scientists from different fields will innovate and find stimuli for growth and collaboration.

A prestigious scientific tradition links the study of crystallography and synchrotron science to Rome, which hosted the pioneering X-Ray diffraction works of G. Giacomello in the mid thirties and where the first Italian synchrotron was conceived and built in 1959 at Frascati, now INFN national laboratory.

We foresee the participation of scientists from Italian Universities and Research Institutes to create a vibrant and interdisciplinary event, international participants and speakers will be welcome witnessing the global profile and collaborations of both Societies.
