European Crystallographic Meeting 2024

August 26 - August 30

€300 – €930

“The flagship of ECA activities is the European Crystallographic Meeting (ECM), held every year, except when there is an IUCr Congress. The ECMs are the main meeting point for crystallographers in the ECA area to show their recent research.

The European Crystallographic Association in close collaboration with the Italian Association of Crystallography – AIC, invite you to Padova (Italy) on the occasion of the 34th European Crystallography Meeting, to participate in the activities of ECM34, to be held from 26-30 August 2024. With a total of ca. 43 half-day microsymposia and more than 15 keynote speakers and two plenary lectures, dealing with a large number of hot topics including biology, material sciences, chemistry, physics, crystal growth, mineralogy, methods, computing or instrumentation. Make sure you checkout the programme, and submit your abstract for oral or poster presentations, in order to share your scientific and technical results with your colleagues and to interact with the most relevant scientist in the field. ECM34 will be a four-day effervescent and intensive scientific meeting with many learning opportunities in every current aspect of crystallography combined with a large commercial exhibition. In addition to the ECA council and the SIGs and GIGs annual meetings, there will be a special Young Crystallographers meeting, multiple workshops and user meetings, lunch meetings, and a wide social programme, which will allow scientists from all over Europe and the world to meet, connect, discuss and exchange.” -copied from the event webpage.

Topics will include:

  • Nucleic acids – protein interactions
  • Hot structures
  • Serial crystallography and dynamics/room temperature
  • AI, software developments and Machine learning applied to MX and CryoEM
  • Infectious and neglected diseases
  • Structural studies in enzymology
  • MX and cryo-EM membrane protein structures
  • Nucleation and crystal growth/Chaperones and crystallization
  • Large assemblies – using X-rays, cryo-EM and Tomography
  • And many more!

Key dates:
Abstract submission deadline: 30 April 2024
Early registration deadline: 30 May 2024

EPDIC18 will follow ECM34: same city, same venue, same abstract submission deadlines! Take a look for topics and more information here.
