Welcome note

Helmut Ehrenberg

Dear crystallographers,

You are cordially invited on behalf of the local organising and programme committee to the 25th Annual Conference of the German Crystallographic Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Kristallographie, DGK), which will take place at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

The conference venue is the Audimax located at the Forum in the centre of the university’s main campus. All aspects of crystallography will be addressed. This year’s focus is on the structure-property relationship especially for energy materials. Contributions to this research field can also be compiled in a special issue of “Zeitschrift für Kristallographie” as original papers or reviews. Please indicate with your registration if you want to contribute to this Special Issue.

Several renowned scientists from different fields of crystallography have accepted our invitation for a plenary lecture. The 25th DGK annual meeting will comprise 18 microsymposia, six plenary lectures and two poster sessions. This conference should provide to all of you an inspiring scientific platform to promote crystallography. In agreement with the aims of the German Crystallographic Society especially young scientists are encouraged to participate in the conference actively, for example in the frame of lightning talks in dedicated sessions.

We are looking forward to your attendance and scientific contributions.

Helmut Ehrenberg
Conference Chair
