ECS5 – European Crystallographic School in Stellenbosch, South Africa


Student and young researchers are invited to attend the 5th European Crystallographic School which will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa, 8-14 July 2018 under the auspices of the European Crystallographic Association, International Union of Crystallography and the South African Crystallographic Society.

The aim of the school is to give attendees a fundamental understanding of the principles underpinning crystallography through a combination of lectures and hands-on tutorials. We will begin by covering the basic principles of point groups, space groups, crystallization, data collection, and structure refinement from a theoretical perspective. Thereafter, participants will separate into two groups to apply this knowledge to either biological crystallography or materials science.
