IUCr 2023 Local Organising Committee

Everyone is welcome at IUCr 2023. We’re ready in Melbourne to bring the Congress back to the Oceania region after 36 years. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the crystallographic community to experience Australia and the unique nature of our region. Melbourne itself is well known for being very friendly and is a diverse, multicultural and progressive city.

The LOC is working hard to make sure the IUCr 2023 is affordable for all. We also want you to bring your families along. Our Congress will have family-friendly initiatives, including on-site childcare and inclusive activities.

Holding the IUCr Congress in Melbourne ensures a safe and secure environment for all participants. As well as hearing about cutting edge science, you can experience our city’s eclectic culture. From the labyrinth of laneways, modern architecture and an abundance of open green spaces - to the wealth of public attractions and the renowned Melbournian coffee, cafés and art scenes.

We can’t wait to show you!
