During the first conference on crystallographic computing held at the
Pennsylvania State College, USA in 1950, Ray Pepinsky's noted that
solving the major computing problems would 'require many minds. Our
here is to share what we know - to cross-pollinate our minds.'

School Aims:

To have the crystallographic computing experts of the present, help
train and inspire a generation of experts for the future. This will be
achieved by the use of an excellent (and full) program of lectures and
tutorials.  Speakers are listed at:
