Dear Participants of ECM33,
The 33rd edition of the European Crystallography Conference (ECM33) has just come to an end after five days of effervescent scientific meetings, and we wish to thank you all for your participation.
After a difficult start in the context of the sanitary crisis until spring, the 110 chairs, the 250 speakers and the 500 other participants finally made the sessions come alive, and crowded throughout the week: 2 plenary sessions, 15 keynotes, and 47 microsymposia.
The conference gathered 883 registrants and received the essential support of 31 sponsors and 16 local and institutional partners. The activity around the industrial booths was never lacking, and let's believe that the impact for the industries will be positive after two years without real interactions.
The participants came from 43 different countries, 757 delegates from Europe, 87 from outside Europe. Naturally, the French were the majority (175), followed by the Germans (120) and the English (110), then the Poles (55).
The M/F parity improves from edition to edition. At ECM33, women represented 39% of the registrants, 46% of the session chairs, and 35% of the speakers.
Three prizes were awarded during the conference: the PERUTZ prize to William CLEGG (UK), the KALMAN prize to Eric COLLET (Rennes, Fr), and the BERTAUT prize to Lukáš GAJDOS (Grenoble, Fr).
About 400 posters were presented in two sessions. Fifteen poster prizes were awarded during the closing ceremony.
We would like to thank you for making the ECM33 a success and we offer you access to the ECM33 photo gallery, thanks to our photograph, Laura MARTIN who should be credited when using her pictures. Besides our photograph’s work, photos were taken by our team of volunteers during the microsymposia; the quality is lower but they will surely make souvenirs.
See you in Padova for ECM34,
