IUCr Scientific Freedom Policy Statement

The Organizing Committee of the European Powder Diffraction Conference (EPDIC17) shall observe the basic policy of non-discrimination and affirms the right and freedom of scientists to associate in international scientific activity without regard to such factors as ethnic origin, religion, citizenship, language, political stance, gender, sex or age, in accordance with the Statutes of the International Council for Science.

At this Conference, no barriers will exist which would prevent the participation of bona fide scientists.

Statement on Gender Balance at EPDIC17
The EPDIC17 Organizing Committee, (which itself is composed according to the gender balance policy) fully supports and promotes gender equality in accordance to the IUCr principle:

https://www.iucr.org/iucr/principles-and-policies/gender-balance

We will enforce and ensure the gender equality among our lecturers and participants, and we will pay a special attention to the gender balance in evaluating bursary applications.

Total scattering studies and disorder

May 27 10:00 - 12:00

Hall Šibenik II

Total scattering and associated pair distribution function (PDF) analysis constitute a powerful methodology for local structure studies. The strength of the approach stems from its utilization, on an equal basis, of both the Bragg and diffuse scattering signals to create a model-free histogram of interatomic distances. The PDF has no presumption of periodicity, making it ideal for studying structure of any class of material, and on a hierarchy of length-scales. The methodology can thus be routinely applied to diverse material classes from molecular systems, liquids, solutions, glasses, nanocrystalline,  nanoporous and bulk crystalline materials with heterogeneities. This symposium will emphasize in particular novel and emerging approaches in total scattering data acquisition and analysis that expand the horizons of applicability of this potent method to such areas as studies of thin films, textured materials, local magnetism, and works under in-situ and operando conditions and in complex sample environments.

Utilization of complementary techniques for structural studies and imaging 

Chairs:

Bob Cernik

May 29 13:30 -15:30

Hall Šibenik II

Technical advances in instrumentation, such as intense X-ray beams, high efficiency and energy sensitive detectors, with combined ancillary probes, have made powder diffraction a unique tool for spatially and time resolved physico-chemical investigations on complex systems of interest in materials chemistry and environmental science. In addition, these methods allow us to create full 3D reconstructed images from crystallographic phase or spectroscopic information.
This is because powder diffraction can couple flexible sample environments with complementary techniques (i.e., fluorescence or absorption spectroscopy/phase contrast or colour tomography) and simultaneous ancillary probes (Mass Spectrometry, Raman or InfraRed Spectrometry) for studying solid state structural processes in realistic environments. Example would include the study of catalysis; battery and fuel cells, cement and cementitious materials and engineered stains in fabricated components all on the relevant time scale to the underlying processes. This micro-symposium will emphasize novel and emerging developments in these fields for structure analysis and imaging.
