Welcome to the British Crystallographic Association Spring Meeting 2017

On behalf of the Programme Committee and Organisers, I am pleased to welcome you to the BCA Spring Meeting 2017.

The meeting will present the latest research and developments within the crystallographic community, following the established programme structure that has operated successfully over the last few years. In Lancaster, we will benefit from three spacious lecture theatres that are side-by-side, giving comfortable surroundings and easy movement between parallel sessions. Each of the BCA’s interest groups will present a Plenary Lecture, and the oral sessions will comprise a Keynote Lecture, followed by three lectures to be selected from submitted abstracts. There will also be a range of Workshops, to provide a more practical emphasis.

A major part of the meeting is an opportunity to meet and discuss with our exhibitors. The exhibition and poster sessions will benefit from being in a single room, which is a short walk away from the lecture theatres. The programme has been suitably “tuned” to ensure that there is ample time for these important activities. Anyone wishing to get a head start on Campus navigation can already take a virtual tour using the iLancaster app!

I encourage you to return to this site regularly to follow programme updates and announcements. The continued success of the BCA Spring Meetings is of course dependent on the delegates that attend – so we very much hope to see you in Lancaster next April.
