Slovenian Crystallographic SocietyWith the desintegration of Yugoslavia in 1991 many of the Yugoslav scientific societies and associations ceased with their activities. Thus the Yugoslav Center of Crystallography, which was established in February 1966 under the auspicies of Yugoslav Academy of Sciences and Arts (Zagreb) also stopped with the official work on 6 January 1992. The Slovenian crystallographers on 2 June 1992 formed the Initiative Board: Prof. Ljubo GOLLICC, Prof. Velibor MARINKOVICC, Prof. Albert PRODAN, Prof. Vencceslav KAUCCICC and Prof. Ivan LEBAN. The aim of the board was to make all neccessary works that the Slovenian scientists in crystallography could join the European Crystallographic Committee (ECC, now European Crystallographic Association, ECA) and the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr). The government of newly established and internationally recognised state Slovenia through the Ministry of Science and Technology gave us all support, which culminated on 3 August 1992 at 14th European Crystallographic Meeting in Enschede (The Netherlands) and on 22 August 1993 at 16th General Assembly of the International Union of Crystallography in Beijing (China), where Slovenia officially became the member of ECC and IUCr (Category I, Adhering Body - Ministry of Science and Technology, Republic of Slovenia), respectively. The Slovenian Crystallographic Society is now acting as a section of the Slovenian Chemical Society.
