The meeting in Bloemfontein will consist of a 2.5-day Conference (12 - 15 Oct), followed by a 2-day Summit (15 - 17 Oct).

(i) The program for the Conference (12 - 15 Oct) will focus on the current state of crystallography in Africa, as presented in some 15 keynote lectures, but also by some 15 young scientists in particular from the English, French and Arab speaking African colleagues.

There will also be ample time for presentation of research at Poster Sessions by students and young scientists, and selected poster presenters will further get the opportunity to present their work on short 'flash' presentations of a few minutes each.

(ii) The program for the Summit (15 - 17 Oct) will focus on how to use crystallography as potential vehicle to expand science in Africa. We particularly there need the inputs from both established and young scientists, but also policy makers, who will discuss strategies on possible actions.

A more detailed program follows soon.
