The International Programme Committee welcomes the submission of abstracts for presentation at the
th Meeting of the European Crystallographic Association


JANUARY 30, 2024

Opening of abstracts submission.

Each registered participant can be the presenting author of only one submitted abstract for the scientific programme (PL, KN, MS), but submit a second abstract to sessions M37, MS38, MS39, MS41, MS42 and MS43. However, every participant can be a non-presenting co-author on an unlimited number of abstracts.


MAY 7, 2024 CLOSED

Deadline for abstracts submission.

MAY 15, 2024 CLOSED

Notification of abstracts acceptance.


  • Deadline for early bird registration.

  • For each abstract, at least one co-author must register for the conference (one registration - one abstract).

  • Abstracts submitted after this date will be allocated with Late Abstract Submission Regime.


All Abstracts submitted after May 7 will be allocated as posters, upon acceptance.

Abstracts submitted between May 8 and May 30 will be included in the Book of Abstracts, upon acceptance.

Abstracts submitted between May 31 and June 30 will NOT be included in the Book of Abstracts.

To ensure inclusion in the conference programme, the presenting author (of either oral or poster presentations) must be registered by 30 June 2024 (CEST 23:59).
