We are pleased to announce that encouraged by last year’s success we are again organizing CCP4 workshop at Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). All details can be found here http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/schools/APS-2009/



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

Dates June 24 to July2

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


First time this year

There will be two days of beamtime available at GM/CA-CAT beamlines 23ID-B and 23ID-D for collecting data from participants’ samples.


The workshop content

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.

Note: There will be model data sets available for tutorials but data, provided by participants, will have higher priority for the hands-on sessions. Therefore, participants are encouraged to bring their problem data sets and/or crystals.



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 15. Selected participants will be notified no later than April 20. Application form, the program, contact info and other details can be found at
