Dear Friends, on the October 10th 2022 we celebrate the World Inclusion Day dedicated to highlight an importance of creating a togetherness among individuals possessing various abilities, backgrounds, ages, races, religions, genders, etc. A spirit of being inclusive is to show an initiative and empathy toward the others building compassionate, welcoming, respectful and united society at the same time. Inclusion is a kindness and honouring others, sharing values among each other, appreciating individualities, making each other comfortable and celebrating being united. The culture of inclusiveness causes teams-in-science happy and consolidated, the same increasing their effectiveness. Wishing us all the happy World Inclusion Day 2022, I invite you to explore and practice by yourself how to be more inclusive. Yours, Magdalena --- Dr. Magdalena Wencka J. Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia Leader of the Equality and Diversity in Material Science RAD
The SCTE Conference, organized biannually, is traditionally aimed to provide a platform to discuss recent discoveries and progress in research on solid compounds containing d- and f-electron elements - in the field of solid state chemistry, physics and materials sciences. It is also a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with other scientists in informal atmosphere and to start new collaboration.

The 9th Conference on Aperiodic Crystals was held on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa during the week of July 8-13, 2018. This International meeting is held every three years and is the flagship meeting of the Commission on Aperiodic Crystals (CAC) of the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr).
This workshop was centred on defect structures, mechanical properties and deformation mechanisms of CMA phase. This meeting was an opportunity for very open discussions including comparison with other types of complex materials even non metallic.

ICQ12 provided an excellent opportunity to learn about new results in the field of quasicrystals and related topics. The ICQ12 followed the Nobel Prize given to Dan Shechtman in 2011 for the discovery of quasicrystals. Professor Shechtman was an honourable guest of the Conference.
