All projects and events

This is a concise listing of all major projects and calendar events (past and future) associated with the International Year of Crystallography 2014 under the aegis of this organization.

Crystal-growing competition for UNESCO Associated Schools The International Union of Crystallography is organizing, together with UNESCO, a special crystal growing competition for selected schools belonging to the UNESCO Associated Schools Network. Selected schools receive a starters kit containing some documentation and 1 kg alum, the material to crystallize during this competition. A brochure provides information to teachers and schools who participate in this exciting venture.
IUCrJ - a new open-access journal One of the main initiatives of the International Union of Crystallography to celebrate the International Year is the launch of IUCrJ, a new peer-reviewed journal.
Magnetic Group Tables 1-, 2- and 3-Dimensional Magnetic Subperiodic Groups and Magnetic Space Groups by Daniel B. Litvin
Bragg centennial issue A collection of articles contributed by speakers at the Bragg Centennial Symposium held in Adelaide on 6 December 2012, published in Acta Crystallographica Section A
Early Days of X-ray Crystallography This book relates the discovery itself, the early days of X-ray crystallography, and the way the news of the discovery spread round the world. It explains how the first crystal structures were determined, and recounts which were the early applications of X-ray crystallography. It also tells how the concept of space lattice has developed since ancient times, and how our understanding of the nature of light has changed over time.
X-ray diffraction microscopy special issue In anticipation of the International Year of Crystallography in 2014, Journal of Applied Crystallography presents a virtual issue on recent developments in X-ray diffraction microscopy.
50 Years of X-ray Diffraction A collection of first-hand essays, anecdotes and commemorations, first published in 1962 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first experiments in X-ray diffraction.
Science Crystallography Special Issue Science special issue reprint on Crystallography at 100.
A Little Dictionary of Crystallography The hard-copy publication A Little Dictionary of Crystallography is a printed snapshot of the contents of the Online Dictionary of Crystallography. The Online Dictionary is a project of the IUCr Commission on Crystallographic Nomenclature. This book brings together in one handy pocket-sized reference work a selection of definitions of crystallographic terms, and is the Commission's contribution to the International Year of Crystallography.
