Dear Ton,
  We have sought out several speakers already and have the beginning of
a session on Diffraction Image processing and Data Quality.

 Could I suggest some people who may have expertise in some of the other
areas. I am trying to persuade as many people as possible to come.. 

1) Automatic structure solution - the people at CCP4 are working on
scripting to link tasks. Someone may be coming to a commercial

2) Kevin Cowtan is writing basic crystallographic libraries inh C++
which should be accessible for many applications.

 This is in parallel to the work done in USA - Ralf Grosse-K?? has
written cctbx, which handles all symmetry libraries.

It would be good to have either or both of them contribute to the Modern
Programming Techniques section.

I have Emails if the Chair/ co Chairs are interested in following any of
these up ..

 Best wishes Eleanor
