The ICDD Spring Annual Meeting!
22-26 March 2004 - ICDD Headquarters

Plenary Session: Advanced Instrumentation
Advances in generator design, powerful high efficiency optics, fast and/or multidimensional detectors have resulted in increased design flexibility and new analysis capabilities in X-ray analyses. Leading experts in instrument design discussed the technology behind these developments and their applications. In addition, Dr. Pierre Villars discussed the development of a new structural prototyping system used by the Linus Pauling File and proposed for the Powder Diffraction File.

The International Centre for Diffraction Data invited its members, friends, and colleagues in the scientific community to our Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting was held from 22-26 March 2004 at ICDD Corporate Headquarters in Newtown Square, PA. This year, ICDD augmented its typical meetings by adding a Plenary Session on Advanced Instrumentation, a guided tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and  followed by an evening Technical Poster Session and reception on Tuesday, 23 March.

Highlights Tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art:
Discover the many unique treasures found within the majestic walls of one of the largest and most important art museums in the United States. This guided tour will offer a spectacular look at a sampling of the over 300,000 works of art sure to meet the varied interests of all in attendance. Built in 1876, this great art institution is home to some of the most brilliant artistic achievements known throughout the world. We invite ICDD members, spouses, families, and guests to join us!

Poster Session and Reception
Following the museum tour,  ICDD will sponsor a poster session and reception on Tuesday, 23 March 2004, at 7:30 pm at the Concordville Inn Restaurant (Gold Ballroom), adjacent to the host hotel, the Best Western Concordville Hotel and Conference Center. 

ICDD is soliciting poster presentations and their electronic abstract for this event. Here's an opportunity to display and communicate your studies and research results. Posters relating to all aspects of X-ray analysis or work relating to ICDD are welcome. Technical inquiries should be addressed to the Poster Session Team, Jim Kaduk, Kaduk@polycrystallography.com; Ray Goehner, rpgoehn@sandia.gov; or Scott Misture, misture@alfred.edu. Questions concerning the submission process should be addressed to Eileen Jennings at jennings@icdd.com.

Regional Technical Co-chairs review activities in their region of the globe (eight regions) and present recommendations for future activities.

Annual Meeting of Members
All members come together for a formal gathering at this meeting to hear remarks from the Chairman, a review of the Board of Directors' (BoD) and Headquarters' activities, reports of selected BoD Committees, including the Technical and Finance Committees, as well as reports of Task Groups. The results of the 2004 Election of Directors will be formally announced to the membership at this meeting. Corporate activities are also discussed along with any new business items brought forth by members.
