ICDD Events

The International Centre for Diffraction Data promotes materials characterization methods to the diffraction community through global conferences and exhibits. The International Centre provides financial support to selected scientific meetings related to X-ray powder diffraction. In addition, we often support workshops held in conjunction with conferences and exhibits.

The ICDD hosts, provides financial assistance, runs workshops and user group meetings, and/or contributes other support to the meetings below. Please be sure to visit our booth (where applicable) and/or meet one of our representatives during these events – ICDD will be represented at these Global Conferences, Workshops, and Exhibits.
