The executives of Asian Crystallographic Association (AsCA) wanted to know about the political unrest in Bangladesh in the beginning of March 2013 and became worried about possible low attendance in the 12th Conference of the Association (AsCA’2013). Bangladesh Crystallographic Association (BCA) and Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of AsCA’2013, explained the political situation of Bangladesh. We believe that the present political unrest will not be there in December 2013 and the political situation will not be in our way to hold AsCA’2013 from 01 -04 December 2013. BCA requested AsCA executives to allow us to organize AsCA’2013 since it is yet 8 months to inaugurate the conference. However, AsCA executives and councilors decided to shift the venue from Dhaka. BCA regrets to announce that the venue of AsCA ‘2013 has been shifted from Dhaka due to political unrest in Bangladesh. We are extremely sorry for the inconveniences that would cause due to the shift of venue of AsCA’2013.
The Asian Cystallogrgaphic Association (AsCA) is very pleased to announce the teriennial scientific meeting to be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2013. The 12th Conference of the association (AsCA’2013) will take place in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, from 01-04 December 2013. This metting is special, as the Internation Union of Crystallography is celebrating the centennical of the birth of modern X-ray crystallography by Laue and Bragg.
The metting will cover diverse aspects of crystallographic research ranging from synchrotron and neutrons to materials and life sciences. I hope you will mark your calender to be a part of the scientific and cultural excitement. I extend a very warm welcome to you to attend AsCA’2013.

Asian Crystallographic Association
We cordially invite you to attend the 12th Asian Crystallographic Association meeting (AsCA’2013), which will be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on 01-04 December, 2013.
Crystallography plays an important role in physics, chemistry, biology, mineralogy, earth science, pharmaceuticals, etc. and has high scientific and technological potentials in the immediate issues such as health, environment, enery, information, etc. The program will cover diverse aspects of crystallography, such as instrumentation, methods, structure science, diffraction, proteins, drug design, etc. using electrons, laboratory X-ray, synchrotron, neutrons, etc.
Our hearty invitation is extended to all crystallographers and their accompanying persons to attend AsCA’13 and to enjoy scientific and social activities.
We are looking forward to seeing many old friends and newcomers in all fields of crystallography in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
