Estimados amigos del GE3C,
Acabo de recibir el mensaje que recojo debajo sobre uno de los microsimposia que tendrán lugar en el próximo congreso de la IUCr, este próximo verano en Hyderabad (India).
Sin duda, la temática del microsimposio será del interés de muchos de nosotros y seguro que tenemos potenciales contribuciones al mismo. Os lo envío para vuestra información y para que lo distribuyáis en aquellos entornos de posibles interesados.
Un saludo muy cordial.

Dear colleagues and friends
We have been asked to service our crystallographer community by chairing a Microsymposium on “Crystallography around the world” at the 24th Congress of the IUCr in 2017 at Hyderabab. The aim of this MS is double. Firstly, we wish to spread those ideas and experiences that will help other colleagues in their current teaching activities, by selecting oral presentations from the abstracts submitted. Secondly, we would like to generate a discussion about what crystallographers are teaching around the world and how to make it more efficient and more visible.
We realize that this is not a subject that will strongly influence our personal impact index, but you know very well that this is an extremely important issue for all of us. For those who teach regularly, from the School to the University level, and for the visibility and the future of Crystallography. So please, consider contributing and/or persuading your friends and colleagues that you believe have something important to add to this MS. Abstracts are welcome on the following items:
1) Master Courses on Crystallography and related items around the world.
2) Crystallography at PhD programs.
3) Outstanding courses on Crystallography at University level, because they use:
3a) New and effective ways of teaching the practice of Crystallography.
3b) Virtual courses for teaching Crystallography, especially practical Crystallography.
4) Novel approaches to teaching Crystallography in different curricula:
4a) Crystallography in Physics.
4b) Crystallography in Chemistry and Pharmacy.
4c) Crystallography in Biological and Biomedical Sciences.
4d) Crystallography in Materials Science.
4e) Crystallography in Earth and Planetary Sciences.
5) New proposals for teaching Crystallography at the School (at any age level)
6) New materials for teaching: websites, videos, pictures, animations, software, etc…
