Synopsis: New materials play an increasingly important part in technology and every day´s life. Their development, design, and fabrication is often challenging and needs detailed knowledge of the structure at all length scales down to the atomic level. Understanding physical properties, grounded on the crystal structure, and generating knowledge about crystal structures, is the domain of crystallography. Its significance has been acknowledged by the United Nations (UN) in declaring the year 2014 as the International Year of Crystallography.
In this symposium some frontiers of crystallographic work are highlighted.
