European Young Crystallographers Satellite Meeting
Sunday 25th August
University of Warwick, Warwick Arts Centre

The first European Young Crystallographers Satellite Meeting will take place at ECM28, where early stage researchers will have the opportunity to present their work in an informal and friendly environment. This event has been made possible by grants from the European Crystallographic Association and the International Union of Crystallography, for which the organisers are very grateful.
