Students & Retired

Delegates who register at the category 3 are asked to submit relevant proof of their student/retirement status.

Students are considered graduate or PhD students of crystallography and related disciplines under the age of 35 (including those who turn(ed) 35 during the year 2018). Under any circumstances delegates with the obtained PhD or above the age of 35 cannot register as students. Proof of status, including the supervisor’s contact, university document proving the student status, or the passport/ID should be uploaded in a single pdf file.

Retired persons are considered delegates over the age of 65 (including those who turned 65 during the year 2016) and who are NOT regularly employed.


In order to promote the attendance to the ECM31 to those participants that have children, we provide free children registration (category 5). Delegates who register a child can also register one accompanying person for free.


Registration under category 6 is only allowed to the stand staff of an exhibiting company. As the booth rental automatically includes one full registration per booth, exhibitors will be allowed to register one additional person per single booth, provided the person is working on the booth.
