ICDD Grant-in-Aid Workshop
Ulan-Ude, Russian Federation 2007

This Russian Scientific Meeting, devoted to the 75th anniversary of M.V. Mokhosoev, was held on 25-29 June 2007 near Ulan-Ude on Baikal Lake. Corresponding Member of the Soviet Union Academy of Science, Marks Vasilyevich Mokhosoev, founder of the scientific school, was a well-known specialist in inorganic chemistry and material science. The program included 173 reports (8 plenary lectures, 72 oral reports and 93 posters), which represented scientific results from different organizations and countries: Russia, Ukraine, Mongolia, France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Japan and the USA. The plenary lecture, by the ICDD Executive Director, Timothy Fawcett, "The Growth of the Powder Diffraction File into Advanced Materials Analyses," was devoted to the new opportunities of the PDF-4+ database in different branches of science. Within the framework of the meeting, a seminar on powder diffraction was organized, "The ICDD – Ulan-Ude Workshop: New opportunities in powder diffraction". A total of 78 scientists participated in the ICDD seminar. Among them were researchers from 13 institutes of Ural, Siberian and Far East branches of the Russian Academy of Sciences and seven educational institutes, with a lot of them being Grant-in-Aid recipients for many years. Representatives from Mongolia and Far East institutes (Khabarovsk and Vladivistok) participated in the seminar for the first time.

The seminar program included several lectures. T. Fawcett reported on the development of the PDF. The lecture by Prof. Antipov was devoted to the ICDD activity in Russia. R. Shpanchenko dedicated his talk to the powder data technique and data processing for PDF entries. S. Kirik (Institute of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, Novosibirsk) reported on powder diffraction studies of amorphous mesostructured samples. Phase transitions in molecular crystals of biomimetics and drugs were investigated by powder diffraction by T. Drebuschak (Institute of Solid State Chemistry and Mechanochemistry, Novosibirsk), and structural transitions in catalytic systems – by L. Plyasova (Institute of Catalysis, Novosibirsk). Optimization of the Bragg-Brentano diffractometer was described in the report of V. Lisoivan (Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, Novosibirsk). Structure solutions from high-quality powder data were reported in the lectures of T. Kardash (Novosibirsk University), A. Vasilyev (Institute of Physics, Krasnoyarsk), and B. Morozov and R. Shpanchenko (both– Moscow State University). Two latter reports showed the opportunities of powder diffraction in the structural studies of incommensurate modulated compounds. At the end of the seminar, a presentation by Bruker was given by V. Pribora.

Grant-in-Aid Scientific Seminar
Chernogolovka, Russia Federation 2008

There was an ICDD Databases/Grant-in-Aid program Scientific Seminar held during the conference, "Diffraction Methods in Study of a Matter: From Molecules to Crystals and Nanomaterials", 30 June – 4 July 2008, in Chernogolovka, Russian Federation. The local organizers were Professor Evgeny Antipov and Dr. Roman Shpanchenko of Moscow State University. The Scientific Secretary of the Conference was Dr. Elena S. Khromova.

More than 150 researchers from Russia took part in the conference. Scientists from all Russian regions (Far East, Ural, The Central Region, Caucasus, Moscow, and St. Petersburg) attended the conference. Thirty-one lectures on actual tasks of diffraction methods for substance investigation were presented and about 120 researchers made their presentations during three poster sessions.

Drs. Shpanchenko, D. Sklovsky and A. Mironov answered questions concerning ICDD activities and databases. Due to the sponsorship of the ICDD, the organizing committee supported the accommodation of 10 students at the conference.

Grant-in-Aid Workshop
Kazan, Russian Federation 2009

A one-day ICDD workshop was held in conjunction with the National Crystallographic Conference in Kazan, Russian Federation, 30 November to 5 December 2009. There were about 150 participants. The main topics were: ICDD programs, products focusing on PDF-4 and capabilities of databases for analysis of nano and pharmaceutical materials. Dr. R. Shpanchenko was the workshop organizer. The main speakers were Dr. Roman Shpanchenko, Prof. Evgeny Antipov and Dr. Tom Blanton. Dr. Blanton attended as the ICDD representative. Dr. Shpanchenko and colleagues exhibited the ICDD booth at the whole conference. The ICDD presented three awards to young scientists for the best poster presentations.
