4th International Online Conference on Crystals

September 18-20, 2024

You are cordially invited to participate in the 4th International Electronic Conference on Crystals (IOCC 2024), sponsored by the MDPI open access journal Crystals. This is a new and improved initiative based on the experience from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd International Electronic Conference on Crystals, (https://iecc_2018.sciforum.net/https://iocc_2020.sciforum.net/https://iocc_2022.sciforum.net/) which affords the opportunity for researchers engaged in the study of crystalline materials to present their research and exchange ideas with their colleagues. We take full advantage of the Internet, removing the need to travel and omit participation expenses. This is a virtual conference held at Sciforum.net. Sciforum.net is a platform developed and sponsored by MDPI to organize electronic conferences, and to provide our community with the technical support for hosting our digital conferences.

The fourth conference will be organized around the following topics and related themes.

1. Liquid Crystals
2. Biomolecular Crystals
3. Crystal Engineering
4. Inorganic Crystalline Materials
5. Organic Crystalline Materials
6. Hybrid and Composite Crystalline Materials
7. Materials for Energy Applications
8. Crystalline Metals and Alloys

Participants stand a chance to win six highly coveted Best Oral Presentation Awards and Best Poster Presentation Awards, with prize money.

Accepted papers will be gathered in the Proceedings journal (ISSN: 2504-3900) of the conference for free. Selected extended versions of the papers can be published in the journal Crystals with a discount of 20% on the Article Processing Charge (ISSN 2073-4352; Impact Factor: 2.7).

I am looking forward to seeing your participation in these exciting discussions, hearing new ideas and perspectives in the field and welcoming all participants to the online conference.
