The Croatian Association of Crystallographers (CAC) is a professional association and a non-profit organization, established on August 24, 2012. The CAC became a legal entity by the formal decision of the Office for general administration of the City of Zagreb, from October 9, 2012. Currently, the President of CAC is Dr. Aleksandar Višnjevac, vice-president is Dr. Ana Šantić, secretary of the Association is Dr. Marijana Jurić and Dr. Jasminka Popović is elected treasurer.
The CAC was founded with the objectives of promoting excellence, collaboration and careers development within the Croatian crystallographic community, as well as promoting Croatia as the regional stronghold of the crystallography. These objectives are being accomplished by organizing international workshops, conferences, and other scientific meetings, helping and promoting the international collaboration of scientists, visits abroad, life-long education of its members, and funding the research activities. 29th European Crystallographic Meeting (Rovinj, Croatia, 2015) with over 1000 participants, 3rd European Crystallography School (Bol, Croatia, 2016), 17th European Powder Diffraction Meeting (Šibenik, Croatia, 2022), and the series of Hot Topics in Contemporary Crystallography (HTCC) workshops make up our conference portfolio.
