Dear Colleagues,


Building on the success of the past 2 years, we are pleased to announce the third annual CCP4 workshop at Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). All details can be found at



"CCP4 school: >From data collection to structure refinement and beyond"

Dates: June 10 to 17.

Site: Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois (Near Chicago), USA


The workshop content:

First two days of the workshop will be dedicated to beamline training and data collection on GM/CA-CAT beamlines 23ID-B and 23ID-D. For data collection, only the participants' crystals will be used.


The workshop will feature authors and experts of many modern crystallographic software packages. It will be organized in three

Sections – lectures, tutorials and hands-on trouble-shooting.

There will be model data sets available for tutorials but data, provided by participants, will have higher priority for the hands-on sessions.



Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists are encouraged to apply. Only 20 applicants will be selected for participation. Participants of the workshop are strongly encouraged to bring their own problem data sets or crystals so the problems can be addressed during data collection workshop and/or hands-on sessions.



Application deadline is April 9. Application form, the program, contact info and other details can be found at


Fees: there will be a $250 contribution towards lodging paid directly to Argonne Guest House. All other local expenses (rest of the hotel bill, meals and refreshments) will be covered by the workshop.
