33rd European Crystallographic Meeting
23-27 August 2022 in Paris, France
On behalf of the European Crystallographic Association (ECA) and of the French Association of Crystallography (AFC), we would like to bring you up to date with the organization of the 33rd European Crystallographic Meeting. The meeting will be held at the recently refurbished Music Conservatory and Congress Centre in Versailles, close to Paris, between 23rd and 27th of August 2022. Both venues overlook the famous Versailles Chateau.
22nd Congress of the Carpathian-Balkan Geological Association 
7–11 September 2022 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria

The 22nd Congress of the Carpathian-Balkan Geological Association will be held on 7–11 September 2022 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria (https://cbga2022.geology.bas.bg) to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the association. CBGA2022 aims to bring together geoscientists from Southeastern Europe with geoscientists from all over the world for a meeting covering all disciplines of Earth Sciences. The congress is a forum where scientists can present and discuss their recent results and create ideas about collaborative cross-border fundamental and applied studies, for training and specialization in the Carpathian-Balkan realm and beyond.

The registration for CBGA2022 is now open. 17 general and 11 special sessions, pre-mid and post-congress field workshops/ excursions and field workshops are included in the program. Full papers/ short communications can be submitted to the official journals of CBGA Geologica Carpathica and Geologica Balcanica until 05.05.2022 and 15.05.2022, respectively. Abstract submission and early-birth registration are closing on 15.06.2022 (all forms and instructions available on the web page).

In order to be widely used as a pure alternative to hydrocarbon fuels in transport (cars, etc.) and other energy-intensive applications, hydrogen must be able to be stored efficiently. This requires the development of new materials capable of storing hydrogen at high weights and volumes. Metal Organic Networks (MOFs) have potential for industrial applications provided that centers bearing open metal focal points are generated. This will make it possible to increase the affinity of the surface for H2, which will lead to a higher storage capacity at room temperature. Structural studies of MOF at high pressures are key to creating the right material
