Professors J. W. Steeds, D. L. Dorset and M. A. Van Hove have been involved with the organization of Microsymposia for the Seattle Congress. Professor J. W. Steeds is chairing a session on Strain Measurement and is the Organizing Committee member responsible for the session on Characterization of Defects, Microstructure and Texture. Professor D. L. Dorset is chair of the session entitled Methods of Structure Determination and Organizing Committee member responsible for the session on Direct Methods of Phase Determination from Surfaces.
The Commission has decided to seek a redefinition of its area of responsibility and believes that the best interests of the gas electron diffraction community, at present associated with this Commission, would be served by transfer to the Commission on Small Molecules. We are at present investigating the possibility of this transfer.
One of our members, Professor D. L. Dorset, has recently published a book entitled Structural Electron Crystallography with Plenum Press. This is particularly timely because there is considerable growth of interest at present on the levels of quantitative accuracy that can now be achieved by electron diffraction in modern electron microscopes.
