There are five subject based groups within the British Crystallographic Association:
This award is made on the basis of published research within the scientific field of interest of the CCDC and BCA-CCG, defined as:
"Original research in the field of chemical crystallography or the application of crystallographic information to structural chemistry. This definition shall include advances in instrumental, experimental, theoretical or computational techniques that contribute to this field."
The European Crystallographic Association (ECA) is inviting nominations for the fourth Max Perutz European Crystallographic Association Prize to recognize a significant achievement or discovery in crystallography in the past 5-10 years. The deadline for nominations is 28 February 2009.
The prize, including a monetary award and certificate of recognition, will be awarded at the opening ceremony of the 25th European Crystallography Meeting (ECM-25) to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, 16-21 August 2009.
I would like to welcome you to the new BCA website, crystallography.org.uk, which I hope you will find helpful and informative. I would like to thank Sandy Blake, Simon Coles, Mike Probert, Will Bisson and particularly Richard Cooper for all the hard work they have put in setting up the site over the last few months.
The Erwin Felix Lewy-Bertaut Prize is awarded to a young European scientist in recognition of notable experimental, theoretical or methodological contributions to the field of the analysis of matter using crystallographic or neutron scattering methods.
The deadline for nominations is 28 February 2009.
The 2009 Bertaut prize will be awarded at the ECM 25 in Istanbul, August 2009. Candidates from all fields of crystallography are welcomed.
