Consortium for Management of Experimental Data in Structural Biology

Third imgCIF workshop (new series) at BSR 2007 in Manchester and at Diamond:

The Management of Synchrotron Image Data:
Changes to the imgCIF dictionary and software, interaction with NeXus

Sponsored by DOE under grant ER64212-1027708-0011962, NSF under grant DBI-0610407 and NIH under grant 1R13RR023192-01A1

You are cordially invited to a CBF/imgCIF workshop in two lunch sessions at BSR 2007 in Manchester and at Diamond.

The first session will in Manchester on Tuesday, 14 August from 12:45 to 13:45. It will provide an introduction to imgCIF and NeXus and a brief review of current progress. This event will take place in the Barbirolli Room at Bridgewater Hall and will take place from 12.45 to 13.45. This lunch meeting is open, but advance registration is required by e-mailing bsr_imgcif_aug07@medsbio.org.

The second session will be at Diamond on Friday, 17 August at 12:30 to discuss recent changes in the imgCIF dictionary and software and the interaction with NeXus. It will be held in room 1.17 of Diamond House as a working lunch. This lunch is open both to BSR attendees and others, though places are limited and advance registration is required by e-mailing bsr_imgcif_aug07@medsbio.org. Lunch will be provided. This Diamond workshop will be organized in two phases. We will begin with short presentations and some discussion from 12:30 to 13:45. Then there will be a break, and more substantive discussions will continue from 14:00 until the BSR coaches leave at 17:00. (If you are a BSR delegate coach travel is provided but you must complete the relevant form within the BSR 2007 joining pack.) Please feel free to go to the BSR 2007 sessions at 2 pm and the subsequent Diamond tour and to rejoin the discussions at the end to see how they turned out.

There has been a great deal of progress in the past year. There is a lot to report and a lot to discuss. If you work with raw experimental data in structural biology, these workshops may prove interesting for you.

Thanks to funding from DOE, NSF and NIH we have some funds to help with travel to these workshops. If you need assistance, please contact us by e-mailing bsr_imgcif_aug07@medsbio.org.

For further information and to register for either workshop please contact Herbert J. Bernstein and Alun Ashton at bsr_imgcif_aug07@medsbio.org
