The 29th European Crystallographic Meeting

The 29th European Crystallographic Meeting (ECM29) will be held in Rovinj, a coastal Croatian town where subtle Mediterranean grace, traditional Croatian hospitality and rich history and culture coalesce in a unique and uncomparable blend.

The Executive Committee of the Croatian Crystallographic Association (CCA) decided at its meeting of 23 May 2011 to accept the invitation of the European Crystallographic Association to present the bid to host the ECM29 in Croatia. We immediately opted for Rovinj as the conference host town candidate. Rovinj is a true pearl of the Croatian northern Adriatic, located on the western Istrian coast, in the very heart of Europe. The ECM29 venue will be the Adris exhibition and convention centre. Located just steps away from the historical centre of Rovinj, within walking distance from the majority of hotels, from the city port and bus station, this fascinating convention venue is a considerately renovated old tobacco factory complex which allows all the activities of the ECM29 to be organized under a single roof.

For colleagues coming from numerous research centres and universities across central Europe, a useful piece of information could be that you can easily reach Rovinj from Munich, Milan, Vienna, Budapest or Belgrade, in just six hours drive or so.

Traditional Croatian policy of open borders for all visitors coming in good faith, is even enhanced now, as Croatia, since 1 July 2013 became a proud 28th member state of the European Union. All visitors from within EU/EEC are allowed to enter Croatia with a valid ID or passport, and citizens of many countries outside EU/EEC can also enter Croatia without visa. Croatia is also recognized as one of the safest tourist destinations on the Mediterranean. For more practical information please visit the info section of the ECM29 website.
