Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to attend the 45th National Seminar of Crystallography organized under the aegis of Indian Crystallographic Association, to be held at Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University), Varanasi. The seminar will cover diverse aspects of crystallographic research ranging from physical, chemical and materials crystallography, life sciences, drug design and development, small and macromolecular crystallography, crystal growth and characterization, powder diffraction, Metal organic framework structures, synchrotron, electron and neutron crystallography. It would be held from July 9-12 (Sunday – Wednesday), 2017. The National Program Committee is working very hard to bring together a stimulating program that covers all aspects of crystallography with research talks on progress at the forefront of our subject.

 Varanasi, also known as Kashi or Benares or Banaras, is one of world's oldest living cities. It is regarded as the religious capital of India. The city is located on the left bank of the holy river Ganga (Ganges), and is one of the seven sacred pilgrimage cities for Hindus. In the words of Mark Twain, the famous English author and littérateur: "Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together”. Lord Budha gave his first set of sermons at Sarnath, located in the outskirts of Varanasi, nearly 2500 years ago. Buddhists from all over the world visit the holy city on pilgrimage.  To be in Varanasi is an experience in itself. The majestic ghats on the banks of Ganga, morning sunrise, visit to famous temples and evening Ganga Aarati are some of the special attractions. Varanasi is also renowned for its rich tradition of music, arts, crafts and education. For more details, visit http://varanasi.nic.in/.

We look forward to seeing you in Varanasi in July 2017.
