Spring meetings of the British Crystallographic Association

The annual Spring Meeting of the BCA brings together all four subject groups and the Young Crystallographers group for a three-day conference in the UK.

Next meeting

The 37th spring meeting at University of Leeds on 6th - 9th April 2020 has been postponed. The BCA Spring Meeting will now take place on the 29th March - 1st April 2021 at the University of Leeds.

The Officers and Council of the BCA have been closely monitoring the situation generated by the continuing spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus for some time. It is with great regret that we have concluded that the 2020 Spring Meeting should now be cancelled. Great uncertainty remains over the future spread and severity of the epidemic, but the signs are that it may become very serious by the dates scheduled for the meeting. Other comparable meetings are also being cancelled, and a number of companies and universities have announced travel restrictions for their staff. We wished to act prudently and promptly to inform existing registrants, and cease accepting new registrations.

We apologise for the cancellation, but these are exceptional times and it was not an easy decision. Discussions are ongoing in Council on the way forward, and we will work to put in place arrangements for the refund of registration fees.

Simon Phillips President
