PCG-SCMP Winter Meeting "New Developments in UK Materials Crystallography"

Our 2013 Winter Meeting at Cosener’s House will be held in Abingdon on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th November. The meeting will again be held jointly with the ISIS Crystallography User Group meeting and follow the popular format of previous years (see for example Winter 2012). There will be a poster session and the opportunity for a small number of junior researchers to give short oral presentations.
