First European Mineralogical Conference - microsyposium 38: Structure solution of minerals and inorganics by electron crystallography

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention and invite you to contribute to MS38 Structure solution of minerals and inorganics by electron crystallography at the 27th European Crystallographic Meeting (ECM27) in Bergen (Norway), 6-11 August 2012. You can find more information on the website at http://ecm27.ecanews.org/home.html.

Structure investigation of nano-crystalline minerals and synthetic inorganics by electron crystallography is a new challenging frontier for mineralogy and material sciences. Aberration-corrected microscopes allow imaging of nanodomains and grain boundaries at atomic resolution, while the advent of new electron diffraction techniques, like precession electron diffraction, automated diffraction tomography and rotation method, have significantly reduced the limitations imposed by dynamical effects and have finally allowed the acquisition of 3D diffraction data for ab initio structure determination. We therefore invite scientists working in the mineralogical, structural chemistry and material sciences fields to contribute to this scientific session. Keynote speakers: Joke Hadermann, University of Antwerp, Different approaches to solving and refining complex inorganic structures from electron diffraction; Xiaodong Zou, Stockholm University, Solving 3D structures of nano- and intergrown porous silicates by combining electron crystallography and powder X-ray diffraction.

The deadline for abstract submission is May 14th 2012.

Early bird registrations are open up April 30th 2012.

We look forward for your contributions.
