International Year of Crystallography

Author: Mike Dacombe - Date: 4 December, 2011

Support of the United Nations for the International Year of Crystallography is crucial to our effort to underline the importance of crystallography worldwide. As 2014 is the earliest year for which UN support appears to be feasible, the IUCr Executive Committee has decided that the International Year of Crystallography should be changed to 2014. Work is in hand to have this item included on the Agenda for the September 2012 General Assembly of the UN.

Yours sincerely
