IUCr 1996 Triennial Report - European Crystallographic Committee (ECC)

No formal meeting was held in 1993.

The main event in 1994 was the 15th European Crystallographic Meeting (ECM-15) in Dresden, Germany. As usual, ECM-15 was supplemented by interesting satellite and related meetings: the Second European Symposium on X-ray Topography and High-Resolution Diffraction in Berlin, Germany, the 16th General Meeting of the International Mineralogical Association in Pisa, Italy, the Aperiodic '94 International Conference on Aperiodic Crystals in Lausanne, Switzerland, the XVI Conference on Applied Crystallography in Cieszyn, Poland, a meeting on Practical Aspects of Crystal Structure Analysis in Dresden, Germany, a Workshop on High-Pressure Crystallography in Dresden, Germany, and the especially productive traditional pre-ECM symposium on Organic Crystal Chemistry OCC94 in Poznan, Poland.

Five new member countries were elected: Russia, the Czech and Slovak Republics (joint membership), Serbia, Estonia and Moldova. The traditional discussion on the formation of a European Crystallographic Association and collaboration with other parties concerned with crystallography in Europe took place.

The above report has been prepared from the annual reports for 1993 and 1994. Sadly, the IUCr representative, Yuri Struchkov, died in 1995.
