Following the policy of ECA the Programme Committee of ECM22 consists
a., chairman: Alajos Kalman
b., representatives of the three disciplines:
     chemistry: Alajos Kalman; physics: Gyula Faigel; biology: Zsolt
c., president of ECA: Hartmut Fuess
d., all 13 SIG chairs (or representatives)
e., a member of the IUCr ExeComm.
f., 3-5 persons representing topics not included in the SIG and/or in
the satellite meetings

The SIG chairs are kindly asked to give the name of the representative
if there is. We would like to ask all of you to suggest persons for
point "f.,".

As you may see in the planned program there are 16 keynote lectures
during the meeting. There are 8 microsymposia with 5 sessions and 5
lectures/MS/session. It means there are 40 sessions and 200 lectures
organized. It has to be pointed out that there are two 30 min lectures
and three 20 min lectures in a session.

The questions to the SIG chairs/representatives in the Programme
Would you give the number and topics of microsymposia your SIG would
like to organize?
Would you suggest lecturers for keynote and MS lectures?
How many delegates are expected by your SIG?

It has to be highlighted that there is a need for more coordination
between different SIG-s in planning the MS-s at the ECM. Joined SIG-s'
microsymposia are encouraged.

Your contribution to set up the scientific program of ECM22 is warmly
welcome, highly needed and much appreciated.

Looking forward to hear soon from you.
Sincerely yours,
Petra Bombicz
