Dear Colleagues,

Under the auspices of the recently created Crystallography Group of the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ), and on behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the First National Crystallographic Meeting which will be held in the 13th and 14th of June 2019 in Aveiro.

Diffraction techniques, in concurrence with Crystallography, have been a growing area of research in Portugal in the last decades. The national connection to the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) was maintained for several years by the Portuguese Physics Society and, very recently it was ensured by SPQ so to guarantee the international projection and visibility of our national scientists.

This First National Crystallographic Meeting aims to bring together all scientists, from different areas of knowledge, working in Crystallography in Portugal, using not just laboratory instruments but also large international facilities such as synchrotron or neutron sources. We aim to create a forum for discussion and exchange of innovative ideas and prospects for the future of Crystallography in the country.

The attendance of students is strongly encouraged. Besides an interesting scientific program which is currently being prepared, a rich social program is being planned for all conference participants and accompanying persons.

We very much look forward to welcoming you in Aveiro.
