Dear Ton,
I fully agree with your proposed session for the "small molecule"
world. The question of automation is indeed hot and of  general interest.

I also strongly encourage the setting up of sessions in collaboration
with other SIGs. Can anything be arranged also with the powder or
the charge density people; they certainly have a lot of computing.
For instance a rather hot topic is that of the data reduction softwares
for CCD or IP measures when very accurate data are required for charge
density studies. I heard several complaints about the existing

Best wishes
