General Interest Groups
This GIG is a conduit to communicate and discuss the interests of European Young Crystallographers within the association.
This GIG came together to preserve the history of crystallography, to play a part in teaching, consider special requirements of Senior Scientists and any other business connected and concerned to Senior Crystallographers.
The purpose of the GIG on Education in Crystallography is to promote and spread crystallography through education at different levels.
Special Interest Groups
This SIG supports advances in macromolecular crystallographic research by both theoretical and experimental methods and their applications, and bring together researchers interested in these areas.
This group brings together experimentalists, computationalists and theoreticians studying all aspects of electronic charge, spin and momentum distributions in atoms, molecules and condensed matter.
SIG3 promotes experimental and theoretical research on aperiodic crystals, including quasicrystals, modulated crystals, composite crystals, magnetic systems, and polytypes.
The aim of the SIG is to raise the awareness, acceptance and general standard of Electron crystallography through concerted effort of groups and workers in this field. Web site https://ecaelectronsig.wordpress.com/
Modern Mineralogy is focussed on the fine-scale characterization of the structure and properties of minerals and related compounds, thus being essentially a Geo-material Science.
SIG6 promotes access and awareness of crystallographers to new Instruments and Experimental Techniques: synchrotron-radiation, FEL, neutrons and combined methods.
To bring together researchers interested in the theoretical and experimental aspects and applications of MIR phenomena in order to contribute to the advancement of MIR research.
SIG-08 represents, supports and synchronizes activities related to powder diffraction and to stimulate information exchange and diffusion within the European powder diffraction community.
ECACOMSIG (SIG-09) promotes all aspects of Computing in Crystallography. As such, its activities are central to most of the other SIGs in the ECA.
SIG-11 develops and strengthen links and interactions in the community of scientists studying the matter under extreme conditions of pressure, temperature, magnetic field, ...
SIG-12 provides a home within the ECA for the wide range of crystallographers who have materials as their focus and who employ common crystallographic techniques to address problems across the spectrum from magnetism to pharmaceuticals.
Chemistry seen through the eyes of the crystallographer. A gathering point for scientists investigating Molecular Structure and Chemical Properties.
