After two postponements caused by the Corona virus pandemic, we are delighted to announce that the 17th edition of EPDiC (EPDiC17), along with its satellite meetings, will be held as an in-person conference in Šibenik - an emerging star of the Croatian Adriatic coast, from May 29th to June 3rd, 2022.
The European Powder Diffraction Conference, EPDiC, is a biennial conference dedicated to all aspects of the analysis of polycrystalline materials by diffraction methods. Each EPDiC has the aim to highlight the latest developments in powder diffraction including methodology, data analysis and instrumental advances. EPDiCs traditionally bring together the scientists from institutes, universities and instrumentation companies to discuss the progress in academic and industrial research related to powder diffraction, and with EPDiC17, we shall follow the tradition.
The historic town of Šibenik is conveniently settled in a picturesque bay where the Krka River, one of the most beautiful karst rivers in Croatia, flows into the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic and from where the spectacular Šibenik archipelago with its over 250 islands, islets and rocks as well as two national parks, Kornati and Krka, are just a stone throw away. Not less important is the vicinity of two major international airports, those of Zadar and Split, from where we will be happy to organize an easy and pleasurable transfer to the conference venue - the brand new Šibenik Amadria Park Convention Centre.
We have no doubts that EPDIC17 will provide an attractive scientific programme covering a wide range of hot topics interesting for powder diffraction community. It will be a lively occasion to gather the information of recent progress, information and new knowledge that have not been easy to exchange over the last two years.
It is our great pleasure to invite all of you to join us at f2f EPDIC17 and enjoy both a great conference and a pleasant and successful stay.
