Conference / Materials, Structure, and Dynamics: the European Crystallography Meeting  2016

The European Crystallography Meeting will gather up to 1000 participant from various areas of crystallography. It is organised around several "Focus Areas", each of them featuring a number of micro-symposia. One of them is on "Neutron Scattering under Non-Ambient Conditions" with a main emphasis on *high pressure*. We highly encourage you to attend this meeting and in particular the micro-symposium, abstract submission is now open.

28/08/2016 to 01/09/2016
