10th CCP4/APS Crystallographic School in the USA

Date: 19-Jun-2017 to 27-Jun-2017

CCP4 are pleased to announce the 10th annual CCP4 USA Crystallography School organised jointly with the National Institute of General Medical Sciences and National Cancer Institute Structural Biology Facility at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL)

The 2017 dates 19-26 June more information can be found via this link

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

The school comprises Data collection workshop: beamline training; data collection on GM/CA@APS beamlines 23ID-D and 23ID-B equipped with Pilatus3 6M and Eiger 16M detectors, respectively; and data processing. For data collection, only the participants' crystals will be used.

Crystallographic computation workshop: will feature many modern crystallographic software packages taught by authors and other experts. The daily schedule will be organized in three sections of lectures, tutorials, and hands-on, interactive trouble-shooting of the technical difficulties the participants face in their projects. We have had considerable success resolving these problems in past years, attested by resulting publications

Applicants: Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists at the assistant professor level, along with commercial/industrial researchers 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 and/or computation workshops.

Application: Application deadline is April 19. The application form, the program, contact info and other details can be found via this link

Registration fees: The registration for application is free but there is $500 participation fee for the selected academic students and $950 for the industrial researchers. The link for the on-line payments and instructions will be provided once the selection process is completed. The students will be responsible for their transportation, lodging and breakfast. The workshop organizers can assist in making the reservations at economical lodging at the Argonne Guest House. The workshop will cover all other expenses.
