Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the *11th annual CCP4 crystallographic school 
*“From data collection to structure refinement and beyond” will be held 
on June 18-25, 2018 at Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National 
Laboratory (ANL), near Chicago, Illinois, USA. All details can be found 
at http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/schools/APS-2018/index.php.

*Dates*: June 18 through 25, 2018

*Location*: Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne 
(Near Chicago), Illinois, USA

The school comprises two parts: *data collection workshop* and 
*crystallographic computing workshop*. Data collection workshop includes 
beamline training, data collection on GM/CA at APS beamlines 23ID-D and 
23ID-B equipped with Pilatus3 6M and Eiger 16M detectors respectively, 
and data processing. For data collection, only the participants' 
crystals will be used. Crystallographic computation workshop will 
feature many modern crystallographic software packages taught by authors 
and other experts. The daily schedule will be organized in three 
sections – lectures, tutorials, and hands-on (interactive 
trouble-shooting of the technical difficulties the participants face in 
their projects). We have had considerable success resolving these 
problems in past years, attested by resulting publications (see 

*Applicants*: Graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and young 
scientists at the assistant professor level, along with 
commercial/industrial researchers are encouraged to apply. Only 20 
applicants will be selected for participation. Participants of the 
workshop are strongly encouraged to bring their own problem data sets or 
crystals so the problems can be addressed during data collection and/or 
computation workshops.

*Application*: Application deadline is *Wednesday May 2nd, 2018*. The 
application form, the program, contact info and other details can be 
found at http://www.ccp4.ac.uk/schools/APS-2018/index.php

*Registration fees*: The registration for application is free but there 
is $500 participation fee for the selected academic students and $950 
for the industrial researchers. The link for the on-line payments and 
instructions will be provided once the selection process is completed. 
The students will be responsible for their transportation and lodging. 
The workshop organizers can assist in making the lodging reservations at 
the Argonne Guest House. The workshop will cover all other expenses 
(including meals).

We hope to see you at the school.

Charles, Garib and Qingping
