Dear colleagues,

It is an honor and a great pleasure to invite you on behalf of the organizing committee to the 31st Annual Conference of the German Crystallographic Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Kristallographie, DGK), which will take place at the Riedberg Campus of the Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main.

We believe that after the long break caused by the Corona pandemic the crystallographic community will be eager to meet again in order to reconnect and to foster new interactions and collaboration. We closely collaborated with the working groups of the DGK to organize a balanced program that covers all areas of crystallography. The meeting this year will comprise 20 microsymposia, two poster sessions and six plenary lectures.  

We are particularly glad that we have been able to attract a number of distinguished scientists that have accepted our invitation for a plenary lecture. We hope that you will all enjoy this meeting and we particularly encourage the young crystallographers to participate in the scientific discussions.  

Kind regards
