Event Name Polish Crystallography: Past, Present and Future
Start Date 14th Apr 2014 10:00am
End Date 14th Apr 2014 3:15pm
Duration 5 hours and 15 minutes
Description On the occasion of declaring by the United Nations the Year 2014 as the International Year of Crystallography, on 14th April 2014 we organise a Seminar entitled: "Polish Crystallography: Past, Present and Future" at a new building of the Warsaw University Biological and Chemical Research Centre.

The Seminar will consists of two parts: one focused on the past history of crystallography in Poland and the other one on the present challenging topics which are of interests for the Polish community.

Below is the programme of this Seminar which will be also attended by Prof. Gautam Desiraju, President of IUCr:
