The Organising Committee invites all crystallographers to attend Crystal XX1, the Twenty First Meeting of the Society of Crystallographers in Australia. The conference will be held at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel Conference Centre, Thredbo Alpine Village, NSW, from the evening of Tuesday 1st February 2000 to the evening (5.30p.m) of Friday 4th February 2000.
In the week following the SCA meeting (6th-12th February) the 11th Royal Australian Chemical Institute Convention and the 16th Australian Conference on Electron Microscopy are to be held in Canberra. In addition the 25th Annual Conference on Protein Structure and Function will be held in Lorne, Victoria. These conferences may be of interest to some Crystal XXI participants.
The Thredbo Alpine Hotel Conference Centre is ideally located in the heart of the Kosciusko National Park in the Snowy Mountains of southern New South Wales and is nestled beneath Mt Kosciusko, Australia's highest mountain (2228m).

|Fri. 4th February||
The Conference Lecture will be presented by the 1987 Fellow, Professor Douglas L. Dorset, Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute, Buffalo. (Electron Microscopy, Diffaction and Crystallography).
In addition the following invited speakers will give Keynote Lectures in different areas of crystallography and these will form the focus for the different scientific sessions that are planned. The majority of talks in each session will be drawn from submitted abstracts and we encourage, though not exclusively, contributions in these and related areas of crystallography. In addition it is planned to have a session devoted to Instrumental Developments.
We particularly welcome both oral and poster presentations from students.

Accommodation has been reserved in the Thredbo Alpine Hotel and the Thredbo Alpine Apartments, which should be able to cater for the majority of attendees. Both of these are directly adjacent to the Conference centre, but there is a large range of other accommodation available in the village within easy walking distance. We hope that most people will choose one of the two options provided on the registration form, as this will keep the cost of the hire of the Conference Facilities to a minimum. The Alpine Apartments are fully equipped self-catering units. The units are 3 bedroom units in which 5 people can be accommodated in separate beds. Please indicate on the registration form if you have a preference for with whom you wish to share. There is a small Supermarket nearby.
Thredbo is about 2.5 hours drive from Canberra. Bus transport from Canberra on the afternoon of 1st Feb will be provided and similarly return after the conference on the morning of Saturday 5th Feb. Please tick the appropriate box on the registration form so that numbers requiring this transport can be accurately estimated. Note that the journey to Thredbo requires entry into the Kosciusko National Park. While travel by bus requires a single entry payment of $6 for each person, private cars require a permit ($14) for each day in the park (annual pass $60).
If a sufficient number of people plan to go straight from Thredbo to the Lorne Protein meeting, it may be possible to organise a coach. Please tick the box on the registration form if you would be interested in this travel option.
The Registration form, Accompanying Person form, Payment Form and a printable copy of this Call for Abstracts document may be downloaded using the links below. Please complete the forms and forward with any abstracts to the Conference Office. Note, please also fill in an Accompanying Persons form for EACH accompanying person. The deadline for submission is the 5th November, 1995. Note that this date has been set with a rather longer lead-time to the conference than usual, because of the intervening Christmas/New Year period.
