Event Name

The CSD Python API: A Foundation for Innovation

Start Date 22nd Jul 2016
End Date

This is a Workshop of the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association.


The CSD Python API workshop is ideal for researchers that have some basic familiarity with the CSD-System, but are interested in learning about more flexible and sophisticated ways to interact with CSD data and functionality; however, anyone is invited to attend. 

Attendees will not need to be expert in programming or scripting languages, but simply be comfortable with computer systems in general. Our experienced staff will be available to assist with any questions you might have and at the end of the workshop there will be an opportunity to trouble-shoot with the instructors. The instructors will remain for the duration of the ACA conference to provide any additional help and feedback that attendees might appreciate after the workshop.

Almost all ACA attendees will already have access to the CSD Python API through their institution's CSD-System licence, but if attendees do not already have a licence, we can provide short-term workshop licences in advance. Participants will be expected to bring along their own laptops and to have already installed the CSD-System, Python and the CSD Python API on their laptop prior to the workshop.

The workshop will begin at 1:30 and end at approx. 5:00, on Friday, July 22.

Lunch will be provided from 12:30 until 1:30.

All participants must preregister for the workshop, but there is no registration fee.
