Thanks to support of IUCr and ECA, partial financial assistance may be provided to a limited number of students (of age under 30) and postgraduate students. Application with a short curriculum vitae, confirmation about study and abstract of the conference contribution should be sent to the conference secretary. Successful applicants will be notified with the abstract acceptance and the corresponding grants will be received at the registration desk ECM-18. Limited support from local organisers is available also for other applicants. No strict form of application is required.
All applications should be sent to the conference secretary by April 30, 1998
