Imaging, Diffraction and Crystallography

- where John Spence’s Legacy Leads Us

Location: Arizona State University, Tempe campus Dates: 11-13 October, 2022

John Spence had a remarkable scientific impact over an illustrious career spanning nearly 50 years before he passed away in June, 2021. His friends and colleagues are honoring his memory with an international symposium based around the topics of imaging, diffraction and crystallography. A key objective is to project his achievements into the future by discussing current state-of-the art as well as exploring future directions and opportunities in related fields. Contributed talks and posters in these general areas are welcome. We are especially interested in providing an open forum for the next generation of researchers in these areas.
