The Crystallographic Community

Crystallographic Computing School
Sharing our knowledge

Kyoto, Japan

18 August - 23 August 2008

The aim of the Kyoto Crystallographic Computing School, organised by the Commission on Crystallographic Computing, was to bring together developers and users interested in looking beyond the interface. The school was structured to foster the exchange of ideas via formal lectures, afternoon tutorials, coding challenges and code comparison sessions. During the first conference on crystallographic computing held at the Pennsylvania State College, USA in April 1950, Ray Pepinsky's introduction noted that solving the major computing problems would 'require many minds. Our aim here is to share what we know - to cross-pollinate our minds.'
