               Preliminary announcement for the
         2008 Kyoto Crystallographic Computing School
                   Sharing our knowledge

The Kyoto Crystallographic Computing School aims to bring together
developers and users interested in looking beyond the interface. The
school is 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
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." Currently, there is a wide range of
crystallographic software under development, including larger
projects such as Clipper/CCP4, CCTBX/Phenix, DANSE, and Age Concern.
These do not only develop new methods, but also harvest the knowledge
previous generations. The Kyoto Crystallographic Computing School
invites the extended community to an intensive session of working
together and learning from each other.
