Dear Colleagues,


We are pleased to announce the fifth annual CCP4 summer school 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 19 to 26.

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


The school content:

Data collection workshop the first two days: 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.

Software workshop: The rest of the time after data collection will feature many modern crystallographic software packages taught by authors and other experts. 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 at the assistant professor level 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 17. The application form, the program, contact info and other details can be found at


Fees: There is no fee for the workshop. The students will be responsible for their transportation and lodging. The workshop organizers will arrange economical lodging at the Argonne Guest House. The workshop will also cover the expenses for all meals and refreshments.
