Abstract submission

The International Programme Committee welcomes the submission of abstracts for presentation at the 31st Meeting of the European Crystallographic Association.

The abstract submission is independent of the registration procedure (except for the abstracts submitted within the Late Abstract Submission Regime). However, the presenting author must be formally registered at the conference at latest by 1 June 2018, in order his or her abstract to be included into the final programme and abstract supplement. One registered participant can be the presenting author at only one submitted abstract for the scientific programme (PL, KN or MS-1 to MS-45). However, every participant can be a non-presenting co-author on an unlimited number of abstracts. In addition, every participant can submit a second abstract to one of the General Interest Microsymposia (GI-MS45 to GI-MS48).

All accepted abstracts will be published in the online journal Acta Crystallographica Section A as well as on the website of the ECM31 meeting.
