University of Liverpool International Year of Crystallography 2014 Symposium

1 July 2014

Members are invited to this free University of Liverpool event to celebrate the International Year of Crystallography, including a talk from a Nobel Prize winner.

International Year of Crystallography 2014

On 17 July 2014, the University of Liverpool is holding a full-day symposium dedicated to the science examining the arrangement of atoms in solids. 

Three separate sessions will celebrate the University’s award of an honorary degree to Professor Dan Shechtman (Nobel Prize 2011) as well as the contributions of Charles Barkla and Sir Lawrence Bragg. Charles Barkla, a Liverpool graduate and a staff member of the University, played a key role in establishing X-ray crystallography (Nobel Prize 1917) while Lawrence Bragg established its fundamental basis (Nobel Prize 1915).

The symposium is open to all scientists, science students and members of the public. Some knowledge of the physics involved would be helpful to get the most from sessions one and two. The event is part of the University of Liverpool’s Science and Society Lecture series.

Registration is free and includes lunch and reception. For further details and registration, visit www.liv.ac.uk/events/science-and-society/international-year-of-crystallography
