On behalf of the European Crystallographic Association (ECA) and of the French Association of Crystallography (AFC), it is our pleasure to announce the opening of the website of the 33rd European Crystallographic Meeting. The meeting will be held at the Music Conservatory and recently refurbished Congress Centre in Versailles, close to Paris, between 23rd and 27th of August 2022. Both venues overlook the famous Versailles Chateau.
Although many international scientific conferences have been impacted by the current Covid-19 pandemic, we remain optimistic that in 2022, a full and exciting program can be delivered in Versailles. Nevertheless, we are currently working on contingency plans for hybrid or remote format meetings, which can maintain the spirit of interaction of the ECMs, and we will shortly announce an alternative range of sponsorship packages. Despite the pandemic, crystallography has not stood still, and we will be sharing with you, over the coming weeks, highlights that will serve to whet your appetite for Versailles 2022.
We hope that ECM33 will prove to be a fruitful meeting, and we are looking forward to seeing you in Versailles.

Chairs and co-chair of the local organising committee
