Dates and venue

The satellite was held from 24 to 26 August, 2004, at the same site of the ECM-22 congress, namely the ELTE Convention Centre ( Eötvös Loránd University, Institute of Chemistry, address: H-1117, Budapest, Pázmány Péter sétány 1).

The next meeting organized by the MaThCryst group will be a Summer School in Nancy (France), from 20 to 24 June 2005. RGISTRATIONS OPEN!

The Organizing Committee of the ECM-22 Satellite Meeting on 'Crystallography at the start of the 21st century: Mathematical and Symmetry Aspects' observed the basic policy of non-discrimination and affirms the right and freedom of scientists to associate in international scientific activity without regard to such factors as citizenship, religion, creed, political stance, ethnic origin, race, colour, language, age or sex, in accordance with the Statutes of the International Council for Science. At this satellite no barriers existed which would have prevented the participation of bona fide scientists.
