14th Canadian Chemical Crystallography Workshop (CCCW23)

May 30 – June 3, 2023 in Vancouver, Canada

The program will consist of short lectures and demonstrations throughout the meeting. Topics may include crystal growth, diffraction theory, symmetry and space groups, reciprocal space, integration of data, structure solution and model building, refinement, and analyses and presentation of the derived data. Participants will be solving and refining structures starting almost immediately. We will have several experienced crystallographers helping throughout. 

It will be impossible to go into great detail on so many topics in such a short time, so most concepts will be explained using models and examples. By the end of the workshop, most participants are able to solve and refine routine crystal structures, as well as some problem cases. Participants will also made connections with experienced crystallographers who will be able to continue answering questions after the workshop.

The program for 2023 has not yet been finalized, however, below is the final program for CCCW22. Similar topics will be covered in 2023. Please note that the 2023 program has been extended by one day, in order to facilitate more problem solving and one-on-one opportunities for students and instructors.
