THE US PLAYS HOST again this month to the General Assembly and Congress of the International Union of Crystallography after an interval of 21 years. The program and structure of this, the eighth meeting, reflect the broad interdisciplinary character of crystallography. Biological crystallographers have their turn first at Buffalo (see box on page 25 for meeting schedule) for a topical meeting on biologically important substances. This specialized meeting is followed by ten days at Stony Brook, during which many small meetings‐within‐meetings will be held on “Frontier Topics of Crystallography” (see PHYSICS TODAY, July, page 117 for list). More specialized symposia follow at Stony Brook and at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the meeting is topped off by a tour of scientific laboratories in the Washington, D.C. area.
