ECA – Distinguished Lectures on Quantum Crystallography and Complementary Fields

The ECA (European Crystallographic Association) invites you to join the online lectures on Quantum Crystallography and Complementary Fields.

This time there will be 2 lectures which will start at 4 pm CET on the 12th of January, 2023:

Lecture 19: Jean-Michel Gillet: “Phase Space Quantum Crystallography: how about considering the other axis?”

Lecture 20: Katarzyna Pernal: “Reduced Functions and Descriptors for Accurate Electronic Structure Prediction and Understanding Chemical Bonding”

Such lectures will be held once per month, started in December 2023. For registration and more information, please have a look at the event page here.

Merry Christmas & a happy new year!

We really enjoyed meeting our members again at the symposium, and are very happy that we have welcomed a group of new members! Looking forward to meeting you after the holidays!

Inaugural lecture Dr. Raimond Ravelli – Nov. 18. 2022

Former chair of the NVK, Dr. Raimond Ravellli, will provide his inaugural lecture to be appointed Professor in Structural Biology on Friday November 18th, 2022 at Maastricht University. The title of this lecture is “Musing on Nanobiology” and will also be broadcasted through a live-stream. Please find more information here.

On his inauguration, Raimond Ravelli showed a beautiful animation of the SARS-CoV-2 virus life cycle, watch it here.

 

We are looking for you!

We are looking for someone with affinity for social media, who is willing to contribute in keeping track of the Twitter and LinkedIn accounts of the NVK. Please contact us if you are interested, it would be of great help!

Next up: NVK Young Researchers Retreat

On September 29th and 30th, 2022, we are organizing the NVK Young Researchers Retreat! Please find the preliminary program and registration details here.

All participants will present their work, both PhD students and early researchers working in industry or industry are welcome to contribute, which will result in a wonderful and inspiring program! Our key-note speaker, Dr. Yesid A. Ramirez, will talk about his research related to . Additionally there will be plenty of time to network with our sponsors from industry, and of course with your fellow young crystallographers. Also, the career session will provide a overview of career options and plenty of time to discuss these with people who have been in the field for a longer time, both industry and academic science.

In short: interesting science, plenty of options to network, think a bit about your future career, and of course we will have a lot of fun! We hope to see you there!

Registrations are open!

Please register for the NVK symposium on “Reflections on Diffraction”. PhD students and early postdocs are also welcome to register for the Young Researchers Retreat 2022.

The symposium and ALV will be held on June 17th in Utrecht. Find more information about the day full of interesting lectures and the possibility to meet up again with old friends and colleagues here.

The Young Researchers Retreat will be held on September 29th and 30th in Nunspeet. Find more information about those two days packed with crystallography, a lot of fun and an excellent opportunity for networking with fellow young scientists here.
