All applications will be carefully considered by an evaluation panel that includes members of the Organizing and Scientific Committees of the ECS2.
Candidates will be selected on the basis of:
- Declaration of motivations for attending the ECS2
- Recommendation letter of their supervisor
Moreover, the selection will aim at satisfying the following criteria:
- Gender balance.
- Representation of as many countries as possible in order to foster international collaborations (applicants from the region represented by ECA, i.e., Europe and Africa, will be given priority).
- All branches of crystallography (e.g., small molecule, macromolecular, biological, inorganic, mineralogical, physical, theoretical crystallography) represented in order to favour exchanges of expertise.
