Dear Colleagues,

Building on the success of the past 3 years, we are pleased to
announce the fourth annual CCP4 summer school at Advanced Photon
Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). All details can be
found at http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/schools/APS-2011/index.php


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

Dates: June 7 to 15.

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


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 8. 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.
