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.' With
in mind, the school aims are 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.



The Venue

The 2008 Crystallographic Computing School will be held at the Kansai
Seminar house; at the town of Kyoto. Kyoto is the cultural center of
Japan with its long history. The modern city treasures its heritage
its 1600 Buddhist temples, 400 Shinto shrines, and its exquisite
gardens. Kyoto is also a center of Japanese tradition.

The Kansai Seminar House was originally derived from a movement
initiated in Germany by the Christian Churches soon after World War
The influence reached Japan in the 1960's and the Kansai Seminar House
was founded in Shugakuin, Kyoto in 1967. Contributions came from the
Christian Academy Movement of Germany, churches affiliated with NCC-
and Japan.
