HEC-17 : 17th Heart-of-Europe Bio-Crystallography Meeting 2014 25th-27th Sep 2014

Venue :
Akademie Berlin-Schmöckwitz
Wernsdorfer Straße 43
12527 Berlin

The meeting will be held in Berlin and it is being organized by Dr. Manfred Weiss and Dr. Uwe Müller from the Macromolecular Crystallography (MX) Group of the Institute Soft Matter and Functional Materials (F-ISFM) at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

The meeting will welcome a prominent scientist to give the renowned HEC keynote speech. The keynote speech will be given by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Klebe, who is currently professor for pharmaceutical chemistry at the University of Marburg, Germany. Focus of his research is directed towards the understanding of protein-ligand interactions, including chemical synthesis, microcalorimetry, molecular biology, crystallography, bioinformatics and software development.

15th International Conference on the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules, September 17 – 20, 2014 – Hamburg, Germany

It is our great pleasure to invite you to join ICCBM15 with focus on macromolecular crystallization for novel radiation sources such as free electron lasers and complementary methods.

For the individual desiring to learn how to grow crystals or to acquire new crystallization skills, the conference is preceded by a 2.5 days workshop consisting of short presentations, practical demonstrations and hands-on exercises by renown experts.

We very much look forward to personally welcome you and/or your colleagues in Hamburg for an illuminating meeting.

BCA Spring Meeting 7th-10th April 2014

University of Loughborough

“Crystallography @ 100: Looking to the future, learning from the past”

The Annual Spring Meeting of the British Crystallographic Association will be held at Loughborough University from 7th-10th April, 2014

The Spring meeting will follow the successful format used in recent years with the traditional Young Crystallographers’ satellite meeting on Monday 7th April followed by the main meeting starting at lunchtime on Tuesday 8th April with the final session finishing at lunchtime on Thursday 10th April.

Crystallography as a field of research has reached its centenary and 2014 has been designated by UNESCO as the International Year of Crystallography. The theme of the meeting is in tune with these milestones and will be “Crystallography @ 100: Looking to the future, learning from the past.” The meeting logo incorporates an image of the X-ray diffraction pattern of NaCl reported by W. L. Bragg in the charmingly titled 1913 paper “The Structure of Some Crystals as Indicated by their Diffraction of X-rays”

PSDI 2013 – Photo Gallery

Take a look at the online photo gallery from the 2013 Protein Structure Determination in Industry meeting held in Lucerne, Switzerland.

EVENT : PSDI 2013, Hotel Astoria, Lucerne. 3rd-5th November 2013.

We will be exhibiting at this year’s PSDI meeting in Lucerne, Switzerland.  Come and see our new online DLS application and the great new software features we have built in to i-Size software.  The booth will feature a functioning W130i DLS system which you can try for yourself to see how easy it is to use.

RAMC 2013 – Le Bischenberg Conference Centre, Strasbourg, France. 8th – 11th Sept 2013.

We are supporting and exhibiting at this year’s RAMC meeting at Le Bischenberg Conference Centre, nr. Strasbourg, France. Sunday, 08 September 2013 – Wednesday, 11 September 2013.

As usual, Avid Nano will have a full exhibit of the W130i dynamic light scattering system and accessories. This year, we will be showing how a standard low volume quartz cuvette can be utilized to collect the highest quality DLS data from just 2uL of sample.

RAMC and Le Bischenberg Conference Centre is a great meeting and venue and we look forward to meeting you all.
