PCG-SCMP Winter Meeting "100 Years of Physical Crystallography"

Our 2014 Winter Meeting at Cosener’s House will be held in Abingdon on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th 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 2013). There will be a poster session and the opportunity for a small number of junior researchers to give short oral presentations. Details of registration and abstract submission deadlines will be available shortly along with a programme.


Registration has now closed due to maximum capacity having been reached.
