Dear colleagues, dear friends, dear crystallographers

We are very glad to announce the Summer of Crystallography which will take place in the beautiful small town and famous touristic resort of Bol, on the island of Brač, Croatia, in the Bluesun Hotel Elaphusa (4*), from September 21st to October 2nd, 2016. This project includes two international crystallographic meetings, to be held one just after the other.

The event starts with the 24th Croatian-Slovenian Crystallographic Meeting (CSCM24), from September 21st to September 25th, 2016, which is jointly organized by the Croatian Crystallographic Association and the Slovenian Crystallographic Society, under the auspices of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. All the necessary information on the venue, scientific programme, plenary lecturers, abstract submission, registration procedure, social programme, deadlines, accommodation arrangement, arrival to Bol, can be found at this web site. All contributions will be presented orally. An interesting half-day excursion to the interior of the island of Brač will be organized for all participants and accompanying persons. It should be mentioned that there is no registration fee for this Meeting.

Since 1992, every year the crystallographers from different countries attend the annual Croatian-Slovenian / Slovenian-Croatian Crystallographic Meetings, alternatively in Croatia and Slovenia, to present their work and exchange the ideas in multiple areas of research involving crystallography. Most of the participants of the previous meetings have expressed their opinion that these meetings have been very successful in all aspects, scientifically and socially, offering a friendly and domestic atmosphere.

CSCM24 is followed by the 3rd European Crystallography School (ECS3), from September 25th to October 2nd, 2016. The ECS3 is organized by the Croatian Association of Crystallographers and the European Crystallographic Association. All details about the programme, registration, accommodation and important dates of the ECS3 can be found on the web site

After the 29th European Crystallographic Meeting, Rovinj 2015, Croatian crystallographers are very much looking forward to hosting once again colleagues from across the globe.

On behalf of the Croatian Crystallographic Association and the Slovenian Crystallographic Society as well as the Croatian Association of Crystallographers, it is our pleasure to invite our old friends, previous participants as well as newcomers, and especially young scientists, to attend the events of the Summer of Crystallography in Bol. We do hope that you will keep your stay in Bol and in Croatia in a nice memory.
