The First European Mineralogical Conference

European Mineralogical Conference The First European Mineralogical Conference
Frankfurt, Germany, 2-6 September 2012

The idea of having a joint conference amongst the European mineralogical societies was born to foster exchange of new research results between the European countries.
The contributing societies presently are:
  • DMG Deutsche Mineralogische Gesellschaft
  • MinSoc Mineralogical Society of Great Britain & Ireland
  • ÖMG Österreichische Mineralogische Gesellschaft
  • PTMin Mineralogical Society of Poland
  • RMS Russian Mineralogical Society
  • SEM Sociedad Española de Mineralogía
  • SFMC Société Française de Minéralogie et de Cristallographie
  • SIMP Societa‘ Italiana di Mineralogia e Petrologia
  • SSMP Swiss Society of Mineralogy and Petrology

Workshop: Methods of High-Pressure Single Crystal Diffraction

Satellite workshop of the 27th European Crystallographic Meeting

4-5 August 2012

Science Building of the University of Bergen, Norway

We would like to invite you to the workshop "Methods of high-pressure single-crystal diffraction" held from the 4th to the 5th of August in Bergen (Norway) immediately before the 27th European Crystallographic Meeting. This is the second edition of the workshop after the one held in Darmstadt during the 26th European Crystallographic Meeting in 2010.

Topics and program:

  • Introduction and overview
  • Types of diamond anvil cells and loading
  • Data collection procedures
  • Equations of state
  • Integration of high-pressure single-crystal data
  • Integration sessions: software fayre
  • High-pressure single-crystal diffraction at synchrotron sources
  • Intensity corrections
  • Structure refinement: methods & tricks
  • Structure validation
  • Corrections and refinement: software fayre

Convenors: Karen Friese & Tonci Balic-Zunic

SPSSM 2012

International Symposium on Structure-Property Relationships in Solid State Materials The 4th International Symposium on Structure-Property Relationships in Solid State Materials
Bordeaux, France, 24-29 June 2012

The symposium will be an international forum to present and discuss recent research results. The goal is to highlight how the specific physical properties of these materials are related to their structure and/or chemical composition and how these properties may be modified by varying the nature of the chemical bonds, the strength of the electron-electron interaction, the dopant concentration, etc. The meeting will be devoted mainly to structure-property relationships in magnetic, optical, electronic, and functional materials. This symposium will provide opportunities for experimental and theoretical solid state chemists, physicists and materials scientists to share their knowledge and expertise.
