ECM31, Oviedo 2018

The 31st European Crystallographic Meeting, ECM31, of the European Crystallographic Association will take place in the Palace of Exhibition and Congresses (PEC) in Oviedo, Asturias, from 22-27 August 2018.

ECM31 is setting up an attractive programme covering the latest advances in crystallography and related sciences to attract young and senior scientists as well as companies and general public. One extensive agenda for accompanying people will be offered, with special attention to babies and children, with a specific programme of baby-care and children activities.

Asturias, and the city of Oviedo in particular, is an historical, active and organized city of open minded, hospitable and altruist citizens and it may be reached by air, train or car. The PEC has a spectacular urban design and offers a modern, functional and versatile infrastructure with all facilities.

For all these reasons, ECM31 will be an effervescent and fruitful scientific, social and commercial meeting with many learning opportunities in every current aspect of crystallography.
