CCG Autumn Meeting 2021

The British Crystallographic Association Chemical Crystallography Group (CCG) are hosting their Autumn Meeting on Wednesday 24th November 2021. The event will run over one day and will be held in a virtual format.

The theme of the meeting will be ‘Crystals out of Equilibrium’, with a range of speakers looking at dynamic crystals and processes, functional properties and metastability of crystalline materials.

Early evening social event:

After the meeting there will also be an online social event for continued discussions and the chance to interact with the community a little more informally.

There will be a small registration fee of £10 to cover the costs of technical assistance and to support the scientific endeavours of the CCG.

We look forward to seeing you all (virtually) in November!
