Welcome Message from Local Chair!
We warmly invite you to the 16th Conference of the Asian Crystallographic Association (AsCA 2019) to be held at University Town, National University of Singapore, Singapore on 17 – 20 December 2019, and crystallographic workshops on 15 – 17 December.
The AsCA 2019 serves to showcase rapid developments of crystallography in our region. We are anticipating more than 400 delegates from Asian countries. This will provide a platform for those working in these areas to present their most recent research findings and to exchange ideas in frontier research topics in crystallography. The meeting aims to organize a number of scientific sessions devoted to various research fields of crystallography, crystallographic workshops, flash presentations sessions for young researchers and a ‘Rising Star’ session featuring young scientists. The scientific scope of AsCA 2019 will cover all important aspects of crystallography-related areas, including crystal growth/crystallisation, synchrotron, neutron & electron diffraction, structural biology, bioinformatics, chemical crystallography, crystal engineering, materials and polymer science, pharmaceuticals, electron microscopy, and much more.
As you might know, the first Asian Crystallographic Association conference (AsCA’92) was held in Singapore in November 1992 organized by the late Prof. Koh Lip Lin, Department of Chemistry. Thus, AsCA comes home to Singapore after 27 years!
We heartily welcome you to Singapore to participate in this conference along with your students, postdocs, colleagues, and others. Please mark the conference dates in your calendar. We are not sure when will be the next time you will see 400+ crystallographers in Singapore!
