Session Abstract

How do people outside of the scientific life, learn about crystallography?  After the massive efforts of the international year of crystallography in 2014, how are crystallographic ideas being communicated now?  For this session we welcome contributions on how social media and new technology is being used to spread the science of crystallography and its application as far as possible inside and outside the crystallographic community. 

For all abstracts of the session as prepared for Acta Crystallographica see PDF in Introduction, or individual abstracts below.
