The African Neutron Diffraction Meeting - the first of its kind in Africa -
is being organized under the auspices of the International Union of
Crystallography and will take place over the period: 

21-22 August 2003 

The venue will be: 

At a conference centre close to Pretoria, South Africa, with a visit to the
Safari-1 Research Reactor at Pelindaba

The venue is enroute between Johannesburg International Airport and Pretoria
and will enable easy airport transfers. This satellite meeting is scheduled
to allow delegates enough time to proceed on to Durban for ECM-21. As most
international flights to South Africa arrive at Johannesburg International
Airport, delegates to this satellite meeting need only interrupt their trip
to Durban by staying a few days in Centurion. This meeting is planned as a
satellite meeting of ECM-21 (http://www.sacrs.org.za/ecm21
<http://www.sacrs.org.za/ecm21> ), the 21st meeting of the European
Crystallographic Association which will be held in Durban, South Africa from
24 to 29 August 2003.

The theme of the meeting is "Modern Neutron Diffraction and Applications"
and covers topics such as Materials and Solid State Chemistry, Chemical
Structures, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Biological Structure, Physics
and Magnetism, Forward Look: New Opportunities in Neutron Scattering,
Rietveld Refinement Tutorial Session, Tour of the Safari-1 Research Reactor
at Pelindaba.

Participation is unrestricted except for a limitation on the numbers of 50
delegates. Preference will be given to presenters of original research and
to students. Particpation by students and young scientists is strongly
encouraged to stimulate a vibrant interest in neutron diffraction in Africa.

A programme for accompanying persons will be offered in conjunction with
travel agent/tour operator. 

Correspondence should be directed via the Conference Secretariat.
