ICG2017 - Italian Crystal Growth

Italian Crystal Growth Conference Italian Crystal Growth - Materials and Methods in Crystal growth Conference
Milan, Italy, 20-21 November 2017

For some years now, the Italian Crystal Growth Conference has been representing a key landmark of outstanding scientific quality for the community of Italian crystal growers and, in general, for scientists involved in the development of novel crystalline materials with advanced functionalities.
This year, the following topics will be covered by dedicated scientific sessions:
  • Fundamentals of Crystal Growth
  • Low Dimensional Structures: films, wires, dots
  • Organic-based Materials
  • Crystalline Materials for Energy
  • Industrial Crystallization
  • Crystallization of Biomolecules

The 2nd European Mineralogical Conference

European Mineralogical Conference The 2nd European Mineralogical Conference
Rimini, Italy, 11-15 September 2016

Following the success of the 1st European Mineralogical Congress held in Frankfurt in 2012, emc2016 will showcase the state-of-the-art of mineralogical sciences, promoting exchange of new research results between the European - and international - countries. The title of the emc2016 has been conceived to echo the aphorism by late C. V. Guidotti (19.09.1935-19.05.2005) “Minerals, the Alphabet of Geology, and Rocks, the Words of Geology”.
The contributing societies presently are:
  • DMG Deutsche Mineralogische Gesellschaft
  • MinSoc Mineralogical Society of Great Britain & Ireland
  • MinSocFin Mineralogical Society of Finland
  • 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
with participation of:
  • EMU European Mineralogical Union

EosFit Workshop

EosFit workshop at ECM-2015 in RovinjEosFit

Friday August 28th 2015

Hotel Park, Rovinj, Croatia

An equation of state (EoS) describes how the volume or density of a material varies with changes in pressure and temperature. It also defines how some of the elastic properties of the material change in response to compression and expansion. Equations of state therefore provide not only fundamental thermodynamic data but also give insights in to the details of interatomic interactions within the solid state, as it is these that resist the externally-applied compressive stresses. EoS are thus fundamental to understanding the structure-property relationships in crystalline materials. Workshop participants will be introduced to equations of state to describe the volume variation of crystals with pressure and temperature, and taught how to use the EosFit-7 software to determine elastic parameters from diffraction data.

Dr. Ross J. Angel, University of Padova
Dr. Tiziana Boffa-Ballaran, Bayreuth
Dr. Matteo Alvaro, University of Padova
