The ECM-21 Durban Crystallographic Software Workshop homepage is at http://www.ccp14.ac.uk/projects/ecm21-durban2003/

With a main theme of "Crystallographic Software Wizardry in Single Crystal and Powder Diffraction"; and thanks to resources provided by the Congress organisers, there will be a free software workshop as part of the ECM-21 conference registration. A variety of speakers will show participants some of the advanced features in available crystallographic software.

The main aim is to have 20 minute live sessions that show 1 to 2 problems on using the power tools in the various crystallographic software packages in handling tricky problems that might not appreciated.

When speakers and software to be shown are finalized, it is requested that participants will read up on the software prior to the workshop. Weblinks will be provided as talks are confirmed (CD-ROMs can be sent with most of the software and information to those isolated from the internet). Thus presenters can go straight into their software demonstrations with very minimal introduction.

A light breakfast is provided from 8am to 9am. In theory, morning and afternoon tea/coffee is included (but not lunch)

For those staying in accomodation a distance away from the International Conference Centre (and as per being a tourist in any country or city), please read up on the local street-safety guide and tourist advice. Such a website explicitely exists for Durban, the "Durban Safety Guide":
