We are pleased to announce the IFSC/CCP4 Molecular Crystallography School “From data processing to structure refinement and beyond”, held at Sao Carlos Institute of Physics (IFSC), University of Sao Paulo (USP), Sao Carlos, SP, Brazil.
Dates: November 14th through 24th, 2018
Venue: Sao Carlos Institute of Physics (IFSC), University of Sao Paulo (USP), Sao Carlos, SP, Brazil.
The school comprises:
Theoretical and in-depth tutorial training on state-of-the-art methods in macromolecular crystallography;
Main Topics: Diffraction data processing; Phasing and structure determination; and Model refinement and validation;
Crystallographic computation workshop: will feature many modern crystallographic software packages taught by the authors and other experts. The daily schedule will be organized into three sessions – lectures, tutorials, and hands-on activities, with interactive troubleshooting of the technical difficulties the participants face in their projects.
Applicants: Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young scientists at the assistant professor level, are encouraged to apply. Only 25 applicants will be selected for participation. Participants of the workshop are strongly encouraged to bring their own problem datasets so the problems can be addressed during the hands-on/discussion sessions.
Application: Application deadline is September 30th. The application form, program, contact info and other details can be found at http://www.ifsc.usp.br/mx2018
The registration for application is free. Few scholarships to cover travel expenses for students from Brazil and Latin America will be available. Accommodation expenses will be covered to all participants. More instructions will be provided once the selection process is completed.
We hope to see you at the school.
