In 2019, the 16th edition of the Pharmaceutical Powder X-ray Diffraction Symposium (PPXRD-16) is organized together with the second edition of the Spring Pharmaceutical Synchrotron X-ray Powder Diffraction workshop (SPS-XRPD-2) by the ICDD and Excelsus Structural Solutions. This joint meeting will provide the opportunity for industrial, academic, and government scientists to hear from leading experts in the area of diffraction methods for pharmaceutical materials characterization. Fundamental, intermediate, and advanced techniques will be presented that will be useful for application in all laboratory settings. This year, SPS-XRPD is joining with PPXRD to highlight the most exciting recent developments and opportunities in pharmaceutical R&D made possible by synchrotron XRPD. The joint meeting also offers the chance to engage an active network of synchrotron, academic and industrial pharmaceutical scientists, promote awareness of this technique and lower the barriers to access synchrotron XRPD and total scattering techniques.

5-7 October 2018
The 9th International Conference of the Hellenic Crystallographic Association (HECRA) will take place in October 5-7, 2018 at the Conference and Cultural Center of the University of Patras in Greece. The conference is co-organized by HECRA, the University of Patras and the Foundation for Research and Technology. The aim of this meeting is to promote and support research and education in the fields of crystallography and structure in Greece. The forthcoming conference will include plenaries and microsymposia dedicated to recent advances in CryoEM, XFELs, synchrotrons, spectroscopic methods and other related techniques for the study of materials, inorganics, small organics and biomacromolecules, emphasizing the progress of structural sciences in recent years.
Dr. Fabia Gozzo is member of the Scientific Committee and gave a plenary lecture.
3-7 September 2018
The 14th Biennial Conference on High-Resolution X-Ray Diffraction and Imaging will take place in Bari, Italy, from 3rd to 7th September 2018. The first day is devoted to the companion school with tutorial lectures, aimed (not only) to students. XTOP brings together scientists from the fields of X-ray diffractometry, reflectometry, standing waves, coherent and conventional X-ray diffraction imaging and topography, as well as X-ray absorption and phase contrast imaging. XTOP is thus one of the central scientific conference concerning methods and instrumentation in laboratory and synchrotron-based high-resolution X-ray diffraction methods, phase contrast imaging, and micro-tomography.
Dr. Fabia Gozzo is a member of XTOP 2018 scientific advisory board and Excelsus Structural Solutions has sponsored the conference.

Advanced analytical techniques are among the keys to success in drug discovery. To remain competitive, pharmaceutical companies must stay at the forefront of innovation and judiciously apply cutting-edge techniques to boost the efficiency and outcomes of pharmaceutical drug development. In this context, Synchrotron X-Ray Powder Diffraction (S-XRPD) is a very powerful technique to add to the analytical toolbox.
The SPS-XRPD workshop will highlight the most exciting recent developments in pharmaceutical R&D, achieved thanks to S-XRPD. It also offers the opportunity to join an active network of synchrotron and industrial pharmaceutical scientists, collaborating to promote awareness of this technique to a wider audience and lower the barriers to access synchrotron characterization techniques.
Excelsus Structural Solutions is co-organizer of the workshop with Purdue University and will participate to the whole event. Don't hesitate to register and meet our team there!
