[ccp4bb] 24th CCP4 PROTEIN STRUCTURE WORKSHOP 2017 in Carlisle


This is the first announcement for this year’s CCP4 PROTEIN STRUCTURE WORKSHOP 2017 in Carlisle. Please register soon and no later than Friday the 1st of September.


INVITED SPEAKERS: Allen Orville (Diamond Light Source) and Neil Ranson (University of Leeds).

The AIM of the meeting is to foster discussion on many aspects of protein structural work: It provides an ideal opportunity for those early in their scientific career to present and discuss their latest work (including work in progress) at an external scientific meeting. The meeting is run with a friendly, informal atmosphere in mind.

Every year we are grateful to the invited speakers who generously give us their time and share their extensive experience.

VENUEFusehill Campus, University of Cumbria, Carlisle

DATES: 6-8th of September (lunchtime to lunchtime)

COST, including registration, two night’s accommodation and meals on site: FREE for students at UK universities who submit a talk title (talks on ANY TOPIC related to structural biology are welcomed), and the bargain price of £160 for other participants, with thanks to CCP4 and our sponsors for their generous support.

PROGRAMME: Will include a plenary session, during which the invited speakers will focus on focus on cryo-em and XFEL. We will have an update on the CCP4 software suite. The remainder of the programme will be made up of short talks chosen from those submitted by students and postdocs.

POSTER SESSION: We will again hold a poster session; presenting a poster is not intended as an alternative to students submitting a talk title. The intention is to provide an opportunity for those who would like to discuss any aspect of their work in an informal setting, and explore alternative ideas. Often the number of titles submitted for talks exceeds the time available, so the poster session also ensures that everyone can present their work in some form at the meeting. The poster can cover the same work as your oral presentation or be completely unrelated. Posters may have been presented elsewhere.

We hope to secure sponsorship for a prize for best poster and best talk.

SOCIAL PROGRAMME/WORKSHOP: If possible to organize and enough participant we will organize a workshop on CCP4i2 and/or CCPem. Otherwise Thursday afternoon will be free for walking, exploring Carlisle, playing football etc. The Conference dinner will be on Thursday evening
