ECACOMSIG, the European Crystallographic Association’s Computing Special Interest Group, is organising a two day Computing School on 23rd – 24th of August 2013, immediately before the European Crystallographic Meeting (ECM28) at Warwick University.

The School will provide an introduction to software development for crystallography students and post-docs – especially those who are not currently involved with software development (or at an early stage of this). We will not be teaching the basics of programming, so students will need to be familiar with at least one programming or scripting language in current use. These include both modern languages (e.g. Python, C++, Java) or older languages, such as Fortran, C, Perl or Tcl.

The School will be held over two full days, starting in the morning of 23rd August 2013, so students and teachers should plan to arrive on the evening of Thursday 22nd August.

The School will be open to a maximum of 30 applicants. A limited number of bursaries will be available to assist with the cost of attendance. For more information on bursaries, please contact Harry Powell

The registration fee (including dinner on 22nd and 23rd August, and lunch and refreshments on 23rd and 24th August) is currently planned to be €125.

Registration (including accommodation bookings) will be via the ECM28 website

Further details will be posted on the ECACOMSIG website as they become available.

We look forward to seeing you in Warwick!
