70th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association


Scientists interested in molecular and materials structure with specialties in biology, chemistry geosciences, materials science and much more will converge on the San Diego waterfront in August 2020 for exchange of scientific research and technique know-how for the 70th Annual Meeting of the ACA. For 2020, the meeting will have the overall theme of “Training the Next Generation”. Session topics will expand well beyond traditional single-crystal and powder X-ray diffraction techniques to include next-generation methods and facilities such as cryo-EM, micro-electron diffraction, and advanced capabilities at national synchrotron and neutron sources. The conference also seeks to empower the next generation with session content balanced between new scientific results and education on how to perform similar work.
