ECM32 - XXXII European Crystallographic Meeting

MaThCryst Satellite Conference

Wien, Austria, 16 - 18 August 2019

The XXXII European Crystallographic Meeting was held from 18 to 23 August 2019 in Vienna, Austria.

The IUCr Commission on Mathematical and Theoretical Crystallography (MaThCryst) has organised a Satellite Conference.


16 August, full day: Fundamentals of graph theory and its application to the description and interpretation of crystal structures.

17 August, full day: Modular structures, partial operations and space groupoids

18 August, morning: Contributed talks from the participants



The Satellite was held at the Technische Universität Wien.

Special issue announcement

Crystal Research and Technology Participants to the Satellite are invited to submit contributions to a special issue of Crystal Research and Technology that will be published on occasion of MaThCryst 2019 Summer events. Deadline for submission: 30 September 2019. To submit a manuscript of the special issue follow these instructions:
  1. Prepare your manuscript according to the author guidelines;
  2. Login at Editorial Manager (if you do not have an account, you can create one for free or login with your ORCID account);
  3. submit your manuscript by choosing "By Invitation Only - Mathematical Crystallography 2019".
Your manuscript will undergo a regular peer-review process and, if accepted, will be published as part of the special issue.
