SCTMS delegation came back from the ECM-30 
26 September 2016

20160923-01Six researchers of Samara Center for Theoretical Materials Science took part in the 30th Meeting of the European Crystallographic Association (ECM-2016) that was held from August 28 to September 1, 2016 in Basel, Switzerland.

About 990 European scientists attended the conference. The participants discussed relevant issues of sciences greatly influenced with Crystallography – Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Minerology, etc. Every day of the conference was full of reports and lectures, workshops and sessions. The program also included plenary lectures of the Nobel laureates Prof. Ada Yonath and Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn.

Eugeny Alexandrov presented an oral report «Topological collections and knowledge bases for applications in crystal engineering of coordination compounds». Dr. Alexandrov also made a presentation at tutor’s session where he reported on topological analysis in materials science using ToposPro software package.

Other SCTMS researchers presented their scientific research results at poster session: Tatiana Akhmetshina «Two-shell nanoclusters in intermetallic compounds: beyond the icosahedral core», Elizaveta Timofeeva «Crystallochemical analysis of ion conductivity in K+-oxygen containing inorganic compounds», Andrey Goltsev «The taxonomy of rod-packing coordination networks», Ekaterina Kuzneysova «Selection of most promising hypothetical zeolite frameworks for the synthesis of new zeolites» and Aleksandr Garin «Topological analysis of self-catenated motifs in coordination networks».
