Welcome to Crystal 30


We invite you to join us at CRYSTAL 30, the 30th Biennial Conference of the Society of Crystallographers in Australia and New Zealand.  The conference will be held in the Hobart Function and Conference Centre, Tasmania from 29 March – 1 April 2016.

The venue enjoys a waterfront location like no other, situated as it is on Elizabeth Street Pier, spanning 100m out over the sparkling water of the Derwent, the centrepiece of Hobart’s bustling waterfront community.  The event spaces boast floor to ceiling windows so delegates and guests enjoy Hobart’s wonderfully clear natural light.

The conference will start on Tuesday 29th March with registration opening at 13:00 and Welcome / Opening remarks at 14:30.
The conference will finish on Friday 1 April with Closing remarks at 12:40 (lunch will not be provided on this day).
