The 21st International Conference on Solid Compounds of Transition Elements, SCTE 2018, will take place in Vienna, Austria, from March 25 to 29, 2018.

Being initiated by Prof. Michel (Paris) in 1965 it has a successful history of more than 50 years. The initial triennial cycle was changed to a biannual one in 2006, with the latest conferences held in Lisbon (2012), Genoa (2014), and Zaragoza (2016).

Much in the spirit of previous conferences, the SCTE 2018 in Vienna shall provide a forum for the discussion of new ideas and discoveries on the chemistry and physics of /d/- and /f/-element compounds, covering all aspects of structure, crystal chemistry, and chemical bonding, as well as magnetic, thermodynamic, electronic and phononic properties of different classes and families of compounds and alloys, both in fundamental and applied research.

The conference will feature plenary, invited,and contributed talks, as well as poster sessions.
