CEMWOQ-6

The 6th Crystal Engineering and Emerging Materials Workshop of Ontario and Quebec


May 30–June 1, 2019

Concordia University

The Crystal Engineering and Emerging Materials Workshop of Ontario and Quebec (CEMWOQ) is an event that brings together academic, and industrial researchers (students, faculty and staff) working on the design, synthesis, characterization and application of materials, with a focus on solid state chemistry and crystal engineering. The workshop enables the exchange of ideas, serving as an educational and networking event for students, as well as academic and industrial professionals. The workshop consists of plenary and oral presentations, and a poster session with time for discussion within the program. Undergraduate and graduate students are highly encouraged to give oral and poster presentations. Accessibility to students is of utmost importance to us and in the tradition of the workshop, there are no registration fees. We are thankful to our sponsors for making this possible.

 

CEMWOQ-6 will be held immediately after the 10th Canadian Chemical Crystallography Workshop (CCCW19, Concordia University, May 26-30) and preceding the 102nd Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition (CCCE, Quebec City, June 3-7).

Thursday Workshop: Dr. Amy Sarjeant, General Manager, Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre

The CCDC is pleased to present a 2-hour workshop on the Cambridge Structural Database and our software tools. We’ll focus on structure searching and data mining with ConQuest and Mercury, and delve into various ways to investigate intra- and intermolecular interactions in the solid state.

Computers are not required but feel free to bring your own laptops to follow along or work on your own research problems during the workshop time. Software and temporary licenses will be provided for anyone who needs them.
