Scope and Objectives
The principal objectives of the Macromolecular Crystallography SIG are to support advances in macromolecular crystallographic research by both theoretical and experimental methods and their applications, and to represent and bring together researchers interested in these areas.
All European macromolecular crystallographers are encouraged to join the Macromolecular Crystallography SIG. They must first register as ECA members in one of the allowed categories and afterwards contact the Macromolecular Crystallography SIG secretary.
The SIG on macromolecular crystallography directed by its Executive Committee is organising inter alia:
- Microsymposia and plenary talks at the ECM.
- Additional meetings, seminars, workshops and schools, especially Satellite Meetings of the ECM.
- Cooperation with the IUCr Commission for Macromolecular Crystallography in the organisation of coresponding microsymposia at IUCr Congresses. This will need further discussion with the IUCr and it will be the task of the first chairman to establish such a cooperation.
- Promotion of other activities that may favour the interests and development of research in macromolecular crystallography.
