2022 IUCr High Pressure Workshop “Advanced High Pressure Crystallography”

Start date: December 6, 2022 - End date: December 10, 2022
Location: Chicago, United States

For the past three decades high pressure research has made breakthrough progress in many fields of science mainly due to the significant improvements in the high-pressure apparatus and developments of advanced static and dynamic probes. Most of the experiments at extreme conditions are very challenging and require dedicated techniques to collect crystallographic data with unprecedented speed and resolution to quantitatively characterize pressure/temperature induced transformations in the crystalline lattice. The tunability, brilliance, and collimation of synchrotron X-ray sources provides scientists with unique capabilities for probing the structural, chemical, and physical properties of various types of materials in-situ at extreme pressure, temperature, and strain with ultra-high spatial, temporal and energy resolution. However, in many cases the complex energy landscapes of multicomponent chemical systems require the use of the predictive power of computational methods that play an essential role in extreme-conditions crystallography coupled with physical experiments.

The purpose of the 2022 workshop of the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) Commission on High Pressure is to bring together researchers who apply extreme-conditions crystallography in combination with other experimental and computational methods to study a wide range of material properties covering various fields of science, including condensed-matter physics, solid-state chemistry, geophysics, materials science, biology, nanotechnology etc. The workshop aims to facilitate extensive discussion and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Students, postdocs and early carrier scientists in particular will find this workshop helpful in gaining improved familiarity with available state-of-the-art methods and how they can be applied to their research.

We plan to organize a tour to the relevant APS beamlines for workshop attendees (pandemic permits) and a half-day tutorial with hands on examples.

Satellite Meetings of ECM33

Start date: August 29, 2022 - End date: August 30, 2022
Location: Lège-Cap-Ferret, France

Within the framework of the next congress of the European Crystallographic Meeting ECM33, the members of the University of Bordeaux are organizing two satellite meetings. These are:

1. Functional Materials under Pressure Satellite Meeting. The meeting will focus on the structure-property relationships of functional materials under pressure, from inorganic materials to molecular materials or active pharmaceutical ingredients. The synthesis of new pressure materials would also be discussed.

2. Chirality in Crystals Satellite Meeting. The topic will cover the different aspects of solid chirality and the contributions of crystallography to study the properties of chiral crystals.

These satellite meetings will allow international participants at the European Crystallographic Meeting to gather around specific topics and engage in sophisticated discussions with other interested parties. The meetings will provide fertile ground for collaborations between regional and international scientists working in the fields of pressure and chirality and, due to the joint nature of satellite meetings, will also provide opportunities for cross-collaboration between the two themes. The intimate setting of the conference, with meals on site and dormitories, will encourage maximum interaction between participants.

Breaking Down the Barriers in Structural Biology into Defined, Measurable and Solvable Problems – GRC

Start date: July 24, 2022 - End date: July 29, 2022
Location: Lewiston, Maine

Structural biology is entering a new era. Not just the virus and biomedicine, not just astounding breakthroughs in prediction, but new and complimentary approaches are exploding onto the scene. It is time to imagine what could be achieved if there were no barriers to structural information, and to contemplate how we will combine our diverse strengths to overcome obstacles we always believed were insurmountable. An excellent place to start is crystallization, where the impact of any improvement would be very high, but predictive theory remains elusive. Preparation of electron microscopy grids faces a similar challenge. Each session will focus on a critical barrier in structural biology, and the goal will be formulating the best advice to newcomers to the field who will face these challenges. Where possible, test data with a clear scoring system will be defined, and friendly competition between proponents of different approaches will be encouraged. Current best practices will be described, evaluated and compared and the relative effectiveness of alternative approaches will be announced at the meeting. Open discussion is expected to uncover new insights, new approaches, new algorithms, and no doubt flaws in the tests. By the end of the meeting we will have established not only new best practices, but also improved the criteria we use to assess them.

Diffraction Methods in Structural Biology

Start date: July 24, 2022 - End date: July 29, 2022
