Towards an African Crystallographic Association

Oral Plenary Strategy 1


Prof. Delia Haynes (Stellenbosch University)


In recent years, there has been significant effort devoted to the formation of regional crystallographic associations in the developing world. During the International Year of Crystallography in 2014, an IUCr-UNESCO summit was held in South Africa. One of the outcomes of the summit was a declaration that envisaged the formation of an African Crystallographic Association, AfCA. This presentation will discuss progress in the constitution of AfCA, as well as the connections between AfCA, the IUCr and synchrotron users.
