Since 2010 Klaudia Hradil is the head of the X-ray center of the Technische Universitat in Vienna, Austria. She received her PhD in crystallography at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, Germany, in 1995. After a postdoctoral at the Hahn-Meitner institute in Berlin she worked as university assistant at the mineralogy/crystallography department of the university of Wurzburg. From 2003 she build up and runned the thermal triple axes spectrometer PUMA at the Heinz Meier-Leibnitz neuron source in Garching, Germany. She is a board member in various review panels of research neutron sources research for beam time proposals in the field of structure and inelastic neutron scattering. Furthermore, she serves as general secretary of the national committee for crystallography in Austria and the special interest group for neutron and synchrotron research within the Austrian physical society. She has been working within various fields of crystallography, condensed matter physics and material science. Besides the research work she also was intensely involved in instrument design for neutron and X-ray lab sources.

Dr. Sci. Nadezhda Bolotina was graduated from the Moscow State University of Education as a mathematician and started as an engineer in the Shubnikov Institute of Crystallography of Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, creating new algorithms and software for the X-ray and neutron diffractometers. Since then, her scientific interest is invariably concerned with advanced techniques of the crystal structure analysis giving new possibilities to investigate the crystal growth, structure properties relationship. Her PhD (1995) and DSc (2007) were obtained from the Shubnikov Institute of Crystallography in field of crystallography and crystal physics. To date, she is the leading researcher of the Shubnikov Institute of Crystallography; the chair of Commission on Aperiodic Crystals of Russian National Committee for Crystallography. For the last ten years she has been working as the co-editor of the IUCr journal Acta Crystallographica Section B: Structural Science, Crystal Engineering and Materials. She was a member of Commission on Aperiodic Crystals of International Union of Crystallography (IUCr), a member of Organizing and Programming Committees; the chair and co-chair of a number of the workshops and microsymposia of various crystallographic meetings.
