Report of the Seventh Slovenian-Croatian Crystallographic Meeting, Radenci, Slovenia, June 1998

The seventh joint meeting of Slovenian and Croatian crystallographers was held in Spa Radenci, Prekmurje in Slovenia from 18-20 June 1998. The meetings are being organised by the Slovenian Crystallographic Society and Croatian Crystallographic Association and co-chaired by Prof. Ljubo Golic(Ljubljana) and Prof. Boris Kamenar (Zagreb). The financial sponsors of the meeting were the Ministry of Science and Technology of Slovenia and the Faculty of Chemistry and the Chemical Technology, University of Ljubljana. The meeting was also kindly supported by Philips (The Netherlands), Anton Paar (Austria), Bruker-axs (Germany), Huber (Germany), Molecular Structure Corporation (Europe), Nonius (The Netherlands), Stoe & Cie (Germany), Krka (Novo mesto, Slovenia) and Labena (Ljubljana, Slovenia).

The scientific programme included four invited plenary lectures presented by:

Prof. M. Kaftory (Technion, Haifa, Israel): Three Decades of Chemical Reactions in the Solid State, From Photodimerization to Methyl Transfer

Prof. E. Tillmanns (University, Vienna, Austria): How to Avoid Unnecessarily Low Symmetry in Crystal Structure Determinations

Prof. A.M. Tonejc (University, Zagreb, Croatia): High-Resolution Electron Microscopy (HREM): Image Processing Analysis of Defects and Grain Boundaries in Nanocrystalline Materials

Dr. K. Djinovic Carugo (EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany): Protein Function Through Crystallography

All together 57 crystallographers participated at the meeting and they presented 40 oral contributions dealing with all aspects of crystallography and its applications in fundamental, chemical, physical, protein research and in material science. The official language of the meeting, written and spoken, was English. Abstracts of the plenary lectures and oral contributions were published in the Book of Abstracts. The participants also enjoyed a pleasant trip to wine cellars in Gornja Radgona and the conference dinner in the local pub "Janzev vrh" in the middle of vineyards near Spa Radenci. The programme of the meeting is displayed on the net at http://www.uni-lj.si/www/kem/meeting.htm . The Eighth Croatian-Slovenian Crystallographic Meeting will be held in June 1999 at the Istrian coast in Croatia.
