The Dutch Crystallographic Society (NVK) will have their yearly symposium (general members meeting) on February 5, 2020 from 19:00h to 21:00h.  We will have three speakers highlighting topics of present-day crystallography. Before the meeting, at 17:00h, there will be the ALV, where we will discuss with the members what we did last year and what our plans are for the future. At 18:00h we will have a joint dinner buffet. The scientific program starts at 19:00h. After the talks we can have drinks. The ALV is open for NVK members. Anyone else who is interested can join for dinner, talks and drinks. Registration is closed now.

Monique van der Veen (Chemical Engineering, Delft University of Technology):
“The dynamic nature of Metal-Organic Frameworks”

Remy Loris (Vrije Universiteit Brussel):
 “Bacterial toxin-antitoxin systems: complex regulatory mechanisms for proteins without function?”

Conference location:

The meeting will be held in the Antropia, Cultuur- en Congrescentrum,
Hoofdstraat 8 in Driebergen. Antropia is very close to the train station Driebergen-Zeist as well as the A12 (exit Driebergen-Zeist).

If you come by train, you can travel to Driebergen-Zeist station, cross the road towards the P&R parking garage of the station and walk in front of the garage to the left onto the footpath and follow the signs for Antropia. (You will see Landgoed de Reehorst on your right.) You can easily plan your train journey here.

If you come by car, you can park at Q-Park P + R Station Driebergen Zeist. Navigate to Stationsweg 15B or Oude Stationsweg 13.

Details (in Dutch) on how to get there can be found here.

We look forward to see you at the NVK yearly symposium!
