Abstract acceptance started
Today we have started with the abstract acceptance notification process. Because of the high number of MECC + IMA abstracts (~1680) and because of the longer submission and shorter evaluation periods, that process will take about one week.
All abstract rejections were communicated earlier.
Please wait for your personal abstract acceptance e-mail in the coming week. Please contact us for an earlier confirmation only if you really need it urgently.
Contact person: Robert Hohol


Though the normal registration fee is kept low, there are several grant options available. Grants will particularly, but not exclusively, encourage and help the participation of

  • students and young scientists of promising dedication, with first results, but limited funds;
  • retired researchers of strong accumulated academic record, but no more institutional and financial background;
  • active researchers (both in academic and applied positions) from countries where research and teaching of clay science is less organised.
