DGK Jahrestagung 2021




The next Annual Meeting of German Crystallographic Society (29. Jahrestagung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Kristallographie - DGK) will take place from 15-18 March 2021.

The DGK2021 will be organised by DESY (Hamburg, Germany) as a virtual event, due to the present situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Crystallography is a modern, interdisciplinary field of research and relevant for many innovations ranging from novel pharmaceuticals to new materials. We are looking forward to meet crystallographers from different disciplines and to offer a virtual platform for a fruitful exchange of ideas at the DGK2021.
