IUCr 1996 Triennial Report - Asian Crystallographic Association (AsCA)

The 1993 council meeting was held during the Beijing Congress and for 1993-1996 Professor W. T. Robinson was elected as President, Professor Yu Wang as Vice-President and Professor Z. Zhang as Secretary and Treasurer.

The second conference of the Asian Crystallographic Association (AsCA '95) was initially planned to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. However, in 1994 circumstances forced the Organizing Committee to change the location to Bangkok, Thailand. AsCA '95 was held on the campus of Chulalongkorn University, 22-24 November 1995. About 240 people attended the highly successful meeting, including about 100 from Japan. Each day's sessions began with two plenary lectures (with speakers from Japan, Australia, China, India and Taiwan and a special lecture by the IUCr President, P. Coppens) followed by six microsymposia and accompanying poster sessions.

AsCA '95 has contributed much to AsCA itself which now seems to be firmly established. In association with AsCA '95, two schools were held: the Asian School on Crystallography of Precious Materials just before the meeting (20-21 November) and the Asian School on Crystallographic Computing just after (27-30 November).
