The ISIS Crystallography User Group meeting is being held in conjunction with the winter meeting of the Physical Crystallography Group of the British Crystallographical Association and the Structural Condensed Matter Physics Group of the Institute of Physics. The meeting is themed “New results from new facilities” and takes place at the Cosener’s House, Abingdon, 5-6 November 2009.


There is no registration fee and ISIS will cover reasonable travel costs for UK academic researchers and PhD students attending the whole meeting. 


Confirmed speakers include:

  • Simon Clarke (Oxford)
    "Controlling the structures and properties of layered chalcogenides and pnictides"
  • Aurora Cruz-Cabeza (Cambridge)
    "Practical lessons from energy landscapes in organic crystals" [PCG PANalytical Thesis Prize winner]
  • Martin Jones (Oxford)
    "Diffraction studies of hydrogen storage materials"
  • Pascal Manuel (ISIS)
    "First results from WISH: a case study with a new iron pnictide!"
