Keep up to date with ECM34

ECM34 will take place in Padova, Italy from 26th – 31st August 2024. Keep up to date with information about the next European Crystallographic Meeting on the conference website.


Padova is one of the most charming towns in Italy and hosts a lively University that is among the oldest in Europe. The historical centre boasts a wealth of medieval, renaissance and modern architecture. From Giotto to Mantegna, from Donatello to Galileo Galilei, Padova has been host to the greatest artists and scientists of the ages, making it a temple of knowledge.


Visiting Padova means a full immersion in arts, history and culture! Moreover, it is in a central position to reach Venice, Verona and the Garda lake, the Dolomites and Adriatic Seaside.


Padova is also a conference-friendly city, as:

  • A medium-size which allows short transfers from one point to another

  • An accessible city with several airports in the surroundings

  • A destination with reasonable hotel rates

​2024 shortly follows the celebration of the 800-year foundation of the University of Padova, and the new inclusion of the «Urbs picta» in the UNESCO Heritage List.

On behalf of the European Crystallographic Association and of the Italian Association of Crystallography (AIC), we look forward to meet you in Padova in 2024.
