2005 Siena Crystallographic Computing School - 18th to 23rd August, 2005
      Certosa di Pontignano, University of Siena, Tuscany, Italy, 

Registration information:

   500 Euro for full accomodation including meals (shared room) 
   400 Euro for lodging not included (but includes cost of 
       lunches and dinners). 



Due to the generosity of the school sponsors and firming up of the
school finances, we can now offer a number of PhD student and young
postdoc bursaries (which are subject to stipulations of the sponsors).
The bursary is 450 Euros to pay the bulk of the registration fee (which
includes shared accommodation and meals). Preference will be given to
applicants who are more remote from Siena and/or invited to present
their work.

There are two separate bursaries streams:

 - 450 Euro bursaries for PhD students and young postdocs in 
     the developing world
 - 450 Euro bursaries for PhD students and young postdocs in 
     the European Union

 - (Successful developing world applicants are required to pay the remaining
    50 Euros of the registration fee; and travel costs to the school)
 - (Successful European Union applicants will be paid the bursary in the
    form of a refund at the school)

There is a deadline of Friday 27th May for bursary applications.
Send a brief E-mail to Lachlan.Cranswick at with your:

  - student / postdoc details,
  - software or algorithms under development as part of your PhD/postdoc, 
  - contact information of your supervisor (postal address, telephone,

Note on School Accommodation:

Only shared accommodation is now available at the Certosa (computing
school venue). 


For single accommodation off-site:

The school accommodation webpage does list some nearby B&B's that might
be more affordable than the hotels.  Camping is also an option.

Casa Lucia is a recommended B&B 
And a car is needed to reach the Certosa di Pontignano from the various
hotels and B&Bs.
