India to host the XXIV Congress & General Assembly of the IUCr

IUCr2017_logoIndia will host the 24th Congress & General Assembly of the International Union of Crystallography from 21st to 28th August 2017.

A cutting edge program with plenaries, keynotes, microsymposia and posters, commercial exhibits, satellite meetings, workshops and official meetings of the IUCr is planned. This will be a state of the art international meeting set in the unique ambience of India. Hyderabad is a modern city of 9 million people that has gained prominence as an important software and pharmaceutical centre. Its iconic symbol is the Charminar or four minarets, which draws its inspiration from the tetragonal crystal system. It is the central motif in our logo for IUCr 2017.

The web site for the Congress is now available and functional. Find out information about the venue and much much more!

We are sure that IUCr 2017 will be an experience to remember for everyone.
