IUCr 2023: latest news


The IUCr 2023 organisers would like to acknowledge and thank the more than 1600 authors who responded to the Call for Abstracts (see the geographical distribution below), and all those who have taken advantage of early-bird registration.


Due to the size and capacity of the venue, we are happy to report that we have extended the space and are now in a position to accept additional submissions for Poster presentations. Therefore, the Organising Committee now invites prospective authors to submit poster abstracts for the Congress by 31 May. 

We are also excited to release some details regarding the IUCr 2023 Social program. For the duration of the Conference, daily morning, lunch and afternoon tea breaks are included in your registration fee. The traditional Welcome Function on Tuesday 22 August will be hosted at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre amongst our valued sponsors and exhibitors. We plan to provide some Australian treats and fine beverages on this occasion.

Rounding off the social program and celebrating the near end of the Conference on Monday 28 August, we will host the Gala dinner event “A Night at the Museum” at the famous Melbourne Museum. This is an event not to be missed. We promise this will be something special and includes access to the Dynamic Earth Exhibit, which is befitting for a dynamic crystallography group. All social functions, plus catering and transfers, are included in your registration. Please note that standard registration ends on 23 June but if you submit a poster and register by 31 May, you will receive the early bird rate!

For a chance to win a complimentary full registration, why not enter the Photo 51 - IUCr 2023 Photographic Competition? For the Coffee Category, we invite you to take a picture of yourself that best represents coffee OR art & culture in your hometown. We encourage you to think a little differently, have fun and be creative. Entries, which will be judged by the Melbourne Convention Bureau, will close on 15 June. Good luck!
