Structure Solution from Powder Diffraction Data
September 14-19, 2003
Congress Center Academia, Stara Lesna, Slovak Republic

The purpose of this conference is to assess the progress
made in the theory and techniques of structure solution
based on powder diffraction data and to point to areas
where further work is needed. Special attention will be
paid to structure prediction done by energy minimization,
because its results are frequently checked by Rietveld refinement.
It is believed that a combination of these two methods will
in a near future become a standard tool.

The scientific program will include both invited and contributed
 lectures, micro-symposia and poster sessions.
 A commercial exhibition will be also organized.

The main topics of the conference are :
1. optimal data collection strategies, autoindexing, space group determination,
2. Patterson & direct methods,
3. structure determination by global minimization methods,
4. structure prediction & modeling,
5. structure determination & refinement from neutron data,
6. accuracy of structure solutions,
7. influence of "real" structure,
8. applications to physics, chemistry, pharmacology & biology,
9. industrial applications,
10. other.

A preliminary list of speakers include : Robert Dinnebier,
Alexander Dzyabchenko, Armel Le Bail, Daniel Louer,
Norberto Masciocchi, Paolo Radaelli, Jordi Rius,
Christian Schoen, Robert Snyder, Peter Stephens,
Robert Von Dreele, Jonathan Wright
