Bruker-AXS / MIT Symposium 2009


Information about location can be found here.

The Bruker-AXS / MIT Symposium is an annual event, directed towards chemists and crystallographers from the greater Boston area. The next symposium will be held on Satruday, February 14 2009. The motto of the 2009 Symposium will be "Chirality in Natural Compounds and Pharmacologically Active Small Molecules" and will focus on crystal structures of organic molecules and the challenges of absolute structure determination.

The symposium will be coupled with a Workshop about Crystal Structure Refinement on Friday, February 13 2009, the day before the symposium. The focus of the workshop will be announced soon. The number of participants for the workshop is limited to 30 -- please apply early, as we will grant places mostly upon a first-come-first-serve basis.

In addition to the workshop and the symposium there will be a Poster Session. Every participant is more than welcome to present a poster, preferably taking into account the motto of the meeting. A qualified group of judges, which has yet to be determined, will be rewarding one poster with the Bruker/MIT Poster Prize (generously funded by Bruker-AXS).
