  • Welcome

    Dear Colleagues,
    On behalf of the European Network of Crystal Growth (ENCG), the Institute Chimie-ParisTech (ENSCP) and the Institute of Physico-Chemical Biology (IBPC), the French Committee for Crystal Growth (CFCC-AFC) is pleased to welcome you in Paris, France, from Monday, July 25th, to Wednesday, July 27th, 2022 to attend the 7th European Conference on Crystal Growth (ECCG7), which will be held at the Novotel Paris Est Conference Center.
    Young researchers and PhD students from all over Europe and the rest of the World are most welcome to participate to the 3rd European School on Crystal Growth (ESCG3), which will be held prior to ECCG7, from Wednesday, July 20th, to Saturday, July 23rd, 2022, at ENSCP and IBPC, in the Quartier Latin district.
    We consider the forthcoming Seventh European Conference on Crystal Growth, ECCG7, as a significant international scientific event that goes far beyond the European borders. We believe that ECCG7 will have a major impact in the condensed matter physics and chemistry communities, the biological crystallization community, for the material science researchers, young scientists and PhD students, all being involved in the field of phase formation and crystal growth.
    The conference program of ECCG7 will include 15 sessions covering the most advanced research in all topics of crystal growth phenomena, theory, experiments and applications, planned to be presented and discussed in three plenary lectures, about 30 invited talks, various oral presentations and poster sessions. For the first time, ECCG7 will implement three parallel sessions. A gala dinner on the Seine riverboat La Patache is also planned. Besides, ECCG7 will be the opportunity to award many prizes (DGKK, Crystals, CrystEngComm, …), especially for PhD students and young researchers, and to hold the general assembly of the ENCG.
    We are also thankful to the sponsoring companies, our long-term partners in the quest for high technical quality in our scientific work.
    We hope that you will enjoy both your stay and scientific experience in Paris, France.
    Looking forward to meeting you in Paris,
    The ESCG3 & ECCG7 organization committee

  • Gender balance statement


    Herewith, we the organizers of ESCG3 and ECCG7 accept and agree with the statement of the General Assembly of the IUCr:

    “The International Union of Crystallography strives to achieve gender balance in all its institutions and activities bearing in mind other diversity needs and its existing obligations to geographic and academic discipline representation where appropriate.”

    As organizers of both ESCG3 and ECCG7, we will promote and address gender balance in respect of all activities regarding selection of participants.
    Furthermore, we will observe the basic policy of nondiscrimination and affirm the rights of scientists throughout the world to adhere or to associate with 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 ESCG3 and ECCG7 no barriers will exist which would prevent the participation of bona fide scientists.

    We shall apply a speaker gender policy and provide statistics relating to gender balance on the conference website.
    The Chairmen of ESCG3 and ECCG7
  • 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.
