The third All Union Conference on the growth of crystals was held between November 18 and 25 1963. The purpose of the conference was to promote the creation of theoretical and experimental bases for the germination of monocrystals, to evaluate the most perspective methods of investigation and to estimate the degree of their perfection. During the conference 150 reviewing and original reports were presented which can be divided into the following four groups, closely interwoven with each other 1 the phenomenological and molecular-kinetic theory of crystal growth, general problems of forming perfect monocrystals, structure of liquids and solutions, particularly in precrystallization period 2 theoretical and experimental investigation of the effect of outer medium bases, supersaturations, pH values, admixtures and other factors on the formation and perfection of monocrystals, mechanisms of growth of real crystals 3 methods of obtaining perfect monocrystals as well as monocrystalline films and dendrites studying the perfection of monocrystals.
