AsCA 2019

16th Conference of the  Asian Crystallographic Association

15-18 Dec 2019 | National University of Singapore| Singapore


The 16th Conference of the Asian Crystallographic Association (AsCA2019) will be held at the University Town, National University of Singapore, Singapore on 15-18 December, 2019. 

As you probably know, the first Asian Crystallographic Association conference (AsCA’92) was held in Singapore in November 1992 organized by late Prof. Koh Lip Lin, Department of Chemistry. Thus AsCA comes home to Singapore after 27 years!

The AsCA2019 conference aims to organize a number of microsymposia, crystallographic software sessions, and a ‘Rising Star’ session by young scientists. Scientific scope of the AsCA2019 will cover all important aspects of crystallography-related areas, including synchrotron/neutron, structural biology, chemical crystallography, materials and polymer science, crystal growth/crystallization, pharmaceuticals, electron microscopy, informatics, and much more. This will provide a platform for those working in these areas to present their most recent research findings and to exchange ideas on the most frontier research topics in crystallography. This also serves to showcase the fast developments of crystallography in this region.

Situated at the nexus of the maritime Silk Road bridging east and west Asia, Singapore is an ideal place for bringing people together from all the walks of the continent. The Lion City has an Indian name, a sizable Chinese, Indian, Malay and even Arab population. Almost anyone can find a place he could call home. It is as cosmopolitan as it can be. The National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technology University and the Agency of Science Technology and Research are testimony of Singapore’s ambition to be a leading power in academic research well beyond the size of the city state and provide the ideal infrastructure for an event of this scale.


We look forward to welcome you to AsCA2019 at Singapore in 2019!
