Just a reminder that during the IUCr Glasgow Congress
from the 4th to 13th of August, there will be a software
Fayre based around 2 SGI O2s, 2 Compaq PCs running LINUX and
5 Compaq PCs running Windows 95/98.
One suggestion is that participants may like to bring
some data (solved and problematic) and use the opportunity
to try some of the software out or have a hacking session
with colleagues on some of the relevant programs.
(It is preferable to bring data on writable CD-ROMs)
Most of the software available via the CCP14 site will be
installed and the following people have booked slots or
theatres to give demonstrations:
John Gallagher - ORTEX Single Crystal Suite
Pamela Williams - XtalView Crystallographic Software
for fitting of electron density maps and solving structures
by MIR and MAD
Paul Mallinson, Tibor Koritsanszky, Thomas Richter -
Project XD Charge Density software.
David Watkin and Richard Cooper - GUI WinCRYSTALS
Single Crystal Suite.
Syd Hall, Douglas du Boulay - The Xtal Single Crystal
Louis Farrugia - The WinGX Single Crystal Suite
Riccardo Spagna - CAOS (Crystal Structure Analysis Operating
System) Single Crystal Suite
Marian Szebenyi - MacCHESS Software/GUI for processing protein
Robin Shirley - CRYSFIRE(Crys2run of old) for DOS Powder Indexing suite.
Paul T. Beurskens - DIRDIF Structure Solution Software by Patterson methods
and direct methods applied to difference structure factors.
Armel Le Bail - ESPOIR software for structure determination by Monte Carlo
of Powder Diffraction data.
Vaclav Petricek and Michal Dusek - JANA98 - crystallographic computing
suite for ordinary and modulated structures.
Lachlan Cranswick - "It isn't that Hard!" - informal "Trading War Stories and
demo sessions" on how hackers can get into and corrupt your crystallographic
web-data servers/computers - and reliable ways to defend network connected
computers on untrusted networks. (A sort of Crystallographic 2600 meeting?)
There is still room for presenting semi-formal demonstrations
throughout the congress.
The Software Fayre computers are not connected to the
internet so if you wish to see some publically available
crystallographic software installed, please E-mail me.
