the ACA for many years. At each annual meeting the (7) best graduate or undergraduate (no post-docs) poster

presentations receive Pauling awards. Each award consists of $250, a complimentary banquet ticket, and a copy of

a Linus Pauling book.

Journal of Chemical Crystallography Prize

The best student, graduate or undergraduate, poster presentation in the area of chemical crystallography or small

molecule structure determination and analysis is sponsored by Springer's Journal of Chemical Crystallography.

The winner will receive their personal choice of books from Springer's extensive portfolio of titles.


RCSB Protein Data Bank Poster Prize

This prize recognizes a student, graduate or undergraduate, poster presentation involving macromolecular

crystallography. The award will be two educational books that will be mailed to the winner after the meeting.

An announcement will appear on the RCSB PDB website and newsletter. For more information, see http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/static.do?p=general_information/about_pdb/poster_prize.html.
