  • Welcome

    We already know that ECCG7 will be a significant international scientific event that goes far beyond the European borders. Prior to ECCG7, young researchers and PhD students from all over Europe and the rest of the World will participate in the 3rd European School on Crystal Growth (ESCG3), held at ENSCP and IBPC, in the Quartier Latin district.

    The conference program of ECCG7 includes 14 sessions covering the most advanced research in all topics of crystal growth phenomena, theory, experiments and applications, planned to be presented and discussed during 4 plenary lectures, 24 invited talks, 77 oral presentations and 92 poster communications. For the first time, ECCG7 will implement three parallel sessions. A gala dinner on the Seine riverboat Le Jean-Bruel is also planned. Besides, ECCG7 will be the opportunity to award 7 prizes (DGKK, Crystals, CrystEngComm, Acta Crystallographica B), 4 of them being intended to early career scientists, and to hold the general assembly of the ENCG.

    We express our gratitude to the International Union of Cristallography (IUCr) for supporting both ESCG3 and ECCG7 by means of IUCr Awards for early career researchers. Indeed, 5 session invited lectures, 32 oral communications and 52 poster communications will be delivered by early career scientists at ECCG7. Among them, 22 will participate in the ESCG3.
    The future of the scientific research in crystal growth is in Paris for 3 days!
    We are also thankful to the sponsoring companies -our long-term partners in the quest for high technical quality in our scientific work- and to our exhibitors.
    Despite the dramatic international context, which impacted the organization of these two events, we hope that you will enjoy both your stay and scientific experience in Paris, France.

  • The International Union of Crystallography Awards Young and Early Career Scientists Grants

    The International Union of Crystallography awards Young and Early Career scientists grants to graduate and post-graduate students as well as post-doctoral fellows, with a maximum age of 30 (exceptionally 35). Participants outside this age group may be considered Early Career scientists and are eligible to receive awards provided they are graduate students, post-graduate students, post-doctoral fellows or within five (5) years of receiving a graduate degree.
    To apply for this IUCr Award, please send an email containing your full name, affiliation, mailing address, age, gender, job status, country of origin and list of papers published in the IUCr Journals (if any).
  • IUCr Scientific Freedom Policy Statement

    The Organizing Committee of the 3rd European School on Crystal Growth and the 7th European Conference on crystal Growth shall observe the basic policy of non-discrimination and affirms the right and freedom of scientists to associate in international scientific activity without regard to such factors as ethnic origin, religion, citizenship, language, political stance, gender, sex or age, in accordance with the Statutes of the International Council for Science. 
    At the 3rd European School on Crystal Growth and the 7th European Conference on crystal Growth, no barriers will exist which would prevent the participation of bona fide scientists.
  • Historical review

    European Conferences on Crystal Growth (ECCG) are organized every three years under the supervision of the European Network of Crystal Growth (ENCG) and local key representative organizations in the field of crystal growth.

    The birth of ENCG took place during a meeting held on October 21st, 2010 at the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth in Berlin. This meeting was attended by 31 participants from 22 European countries and chaired by the President of the International Organization on Crystal Growth, Prof. Roberto Fornari, and the President of the German Association of Crystal Growth, Prof. Peter Rudolph.

    As a result, ENCG re-established the European Conference on Crystal Growth series and the 4th European Conference on Crystal Growth (ECCG4) took place in June 2012 in Glasgow, Scotland, hosted at the University of Strathclyde.

    ECCG series* continued by combining ECCG with the European School on Crystal Growth (ESCG), and in September 2015 ECCG5 together with ESCG1 took place in Bologna, Italy.


    From 13th to 20th of September 2018, the Institute for Physical Chemistry of the Bulgarian Academy of Science and the European Network of Crystal Growth organized in Varna, Bulgaria, the second edition of the European School of Crystal Growth (ESCG2) and the sixth edition of the European Conference of Crystal Growth (ECCG6). ESCG2 gathered 59 attendees, mainly from Europe, but also from Russia, America, Turkey and Australia.

  • Why Paris ?

    From 20th to 27th of July 2022, the 3rd European School on Crystal Growth (ESCG3) and the 7th European School on Crystal Growth (ECCG7) will be organized in Paris, France. While the school, ESCG3, will be augmented by a 4th day and will include demonstrations on both computational and pulling machines, the conference, ECCG7, will implement three parallel sessions.

    ESCG3 will be held from July 20th to 23rd, 2022, in both Chimie-ParisTech and Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique. Chimie-ParisTech is one of the most famous French graduate school in chemistry, and a great part of its research institute focused on materials science. Its founder,

    Charles Friedel (founder and director 1896-1899), is a famous French mineralogist and chemist who co-discovered the Friedel-Craft reaction and who attempted to synthesize diamond.
    Henri Moissan, its 2nd director (1899-1907), was awarded the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1906 for his work in isolating fluorine. He also developed the electric arc furnace and synthesized refractory carbides.
    Georges Urbain, director of the School between 1928 and 1938, was a French chemist who discovered lutetium in 1906 after developing a technique of separation by fractional crystallization of rare earths
    On the other hand, Jean Perrin, creator of IBPC, was a famous French physicist, Nobel prize in physics in 1926 for his work on the sedimentation equilibrium, used for the analysis of molecular weight of proteins and their interacting mixtures. He is also the founding father of the CNRS.
    Close to Chimie-ParisTech and IBPC is located the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN),
    where Auguste Verneuil, was appointed applied chemistry professor from 1892 to 1905. This is where he invented the Verneuil method for growing synthetic ruby and corundum, which made its mark in the realm of industrial crystal growth.
