Traditional European Powder Diffraction Conference will be held
at the Czech Technical University in Prague.
The conference follows immediately the ECM in Budapest, Hungary.

It begins with a Size-Strain workshop - the fourth continuation of
the Size-Strain conferences, now planned as more focused to line profile analysis,
crystallite size and lattice defects analysis.

The EPDIC conference will start on Thursday, September 2 with a
full-day software workshop and
concentrated to two topics - size/strain and phase analysis software.

The programme schedule is similar to last EPDICs with plenary lectures,
two parallel microsymposia and two poster sessions.
Wide scope of powder diffraction should be presented with applications
in physics, chemistry, materials science, pharmacy, mineralogy, and even in biology.
Powder diffraction study of different materials will be presented:
organic and inorganic materials, nanomaterials, thin films and multilayers,
polymers, minerals, metals and alloys, magnetic and ferroelectric materials,
ionic conductors, composites, ceramics, catalysts, intermetallic compounds, disordered structures,
amorphous materials, glasses.

Main topics: structure solution and refinement, stress, strain and texture,
phase analysis, non-ambient conditions, phase transitions, fibre diffraction,
software, databases, instrumentation, hard X-rays, diffraction of neutrons and electrons,
reflectivity, small-angle scattering.
