The Bragg Symposium: celebrating one-hundred years of X-ray crystallography
Elder Hall, The University of Adelaide, 6 December 2012
November 2012 marks the centenary of the founding of X-ray crystallography by Lawrence Bragg, a field in which he and his father, William, made pre-eminent contributions that were recognised by the award of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915. William was the Elder Professor of Physics at the University of Adelaide from 1886 to 1909 and Lawrence was born in Adelaide and received his first degree from the University of Adelaide.
To celebrate this important anniversary, the Bragg Symposium will be held at the Elder Hall, University of Adelaide on Thursday, 6th of December 2012. The Symposium will explore the historical, social and broader scientific impacts of the Braggs' work. The Symposium will have a strong line-up of national and international speakers. Prior to the Bragg Symposium, a combined meeting of the Asian Crystallography Association and the Society of Crystallographers in Australia and New Zealand will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from the 2nd to 5th of December.
Interested persons, in particular University of Adelaide alumni, are most welcome to attend one or both events. Registration is now open.
