GIG-01 Young Crystallographers

Registration is now open for the European Young Crystallographers Satellite Meeting, which will take place on Sunday 28th August 2016 at the UniBasel Biozentrum.

At this event, early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their work and socialise with their peers in an informal and friendly environment.
Oral and poster presentations from all aspects of crystallography will ensure that there is something for everyone’s interests!

Abstracts for this satellite meeting should be sent directly to Andrew Maloney ( Abstract submission is still open for poster presentations.

A registration fee of EUR 25.00 is payable by clicking on the “Buy Now” button below.


Scope and Objectives

The purpose of the General Interest Group for Young Crystallographers (GIG-YC) is to represent the interests, needs and concerns of European Young Crystallographers. In particular the GIG’s goals are:

  • To incorporate the YCs into the ECA community and promote activities at scientific, organizational and social levels
  • To construct an appropriate scenario for the exchange of ideas and information relevant to YCs
  • To act as a breeding ground for new projects and collaborations between different groups initiated by YCs taking their first steps into independent research


Membership of this Group is open to all European graduate students as well as postdoctoral fellows or other young scientists who are starting their career in crystallography or in any related area. To join the group you must be an individual member of the ECA. For registration please click the “Join Group” button in this page.
