The mission of the association

The Italian Crystallographic Association (AIC) is a non-profit, scientific organization recognised in 1998 from the Italian Ministery for University and Research. Today, AIC has about 300 members. Founded in 1967 with the aim of promoting and enhancing the study of the arrangement of atoms in matter, its causes, nature and consequences, the methodologies and the techniques related to such studies. The Association favors all initiatives to promote crystallography, encourage interaction between researchers who, in the context of various disciplines, use crystallographic methods as well as the educational dissemination and scientific diffusion of crystallography and crystal growth.

The AIC is ruled by the executive committee (Consiglio di Presidenza, CdP) elected for a three years term by all the members and consisting of the President, vice-President, past-president, treasurer, secretary and five councilors.
