Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 8th Conference on Aperiodic Crystals - Aperiodic 2015. This conference is organized under the auspices of the Commission on Aperiodic Crystals of the International Union of Crystallography, and will be held in the Brevnov monastery, Prague, Czech Republic from August 30 to September 4, 2015.

The will be the eight of a series of events held triennially since the first Aperiodic in Les Diablerets in 1994. The aim of the conference is to bring together scientists dealing with all aspects of aperiodic crystals and related problems. The conference will be hosted in the baroque building of the Brevnov monastery - the first male monastery in Bohemia founded in 993 AD. Despite of the historical origin, the venue offers all the necessary comfort for a successful and pleasant conference.

The venue is situated only about two kilometres from the Prague castle and about 20 minutes by tram from the famous historical city centre of Prague. Being considered by many one of the most beautiful cities in the world, we believe that the participants will enjoy not only the scientific programme, but also the opportunity to explore the magic and beauty of this city in the heart of Europe.

Aperiodic2015 immediately follows ECM29 in Rovinj. Topics of ECM29 are much broader, however, for the field of the aperiodic crystals both conferences are closely related. Aperiodic2015 completes and broadens information about our field at ECM29. To obtain the complete overview of the modern aperiodic crystallography, we recommend to visit both conferences.
