Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to attend the 47th National Seminar on Crystallography (NSC47), being organized by Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in association with Indian Crystallographic Association (ICA), National Committee of INSA for IUCr and Neutron Scattering Society of India (NSSI) in BARC, Mumbai during June 19-22, 2019. The National Seminar on Crystallography is an annual event of ICA, and NCS47 provides an excellent opportunity for crystallographers from all over the country to meet and deliberate on complementary aspects of crystallographic research using Neutrons and X-rays. Apart from this, structure elucidation through the techniques of electron scattering and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance will also be discussed.

It is a great pleasure to welcome scientists working in all the aspects of crystallography and crystal growth to share their observations, scientific experience and achievements in this meeting. The NSC47 will also provide opportunities to young researchers to interact with scientists working in major national facilities in the country, like the National Facility for Neutron Beam Research in Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai and the Synchrotron Facility, RRCAT, Indore.

The meeting will cover different aspects of crystallographic research ranging from neutron, synchrotron and electron crystallography, small molecule crystallography, macro molecular stuctures, crystal growth and characterization, powder diffraction, functional materials, crystallography under extreme conditions etc to capture developments being made in crystal engineering on multiple fronts. The programme committee has organized a rich scientific programme of plenary talks, invited talks, oral and poster presentations so that there is maximum interaction between the experienced researchers and the beginners.

How to reach BARC

The Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) is located at the Northern East end of the island city of Mumbai. Until recently known as Bombay, Mumbai is India's most cosmopolitan city, finance and business capital and home to the entertainment industry. Mumbai is a vibrant, pulsating metropolis, which affords diverse sightseeing opportunities. Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) is located near Anushakti Nagar Bus Terminus. Anushakti Nagar Bus Terminus is a landmark known to most taxi/auto drivers. The Centre is immediately adjacent to the terminus on the Western side. More details are available on


Limited accommodation for Students, faculty and senior scientists can be arranged in guest houses in Anushakti Nagar, Mumbai on first-come, first-serve basis. Those who desire to book this accommodation should approach the Convener, as early as possible (on or before May 15, 2019). The details of tariff and booking may be obtained from the Convener, Organizing Committee.


Registration is a must for all the participants.
