Here’s a picture of me with Suzanna and Colin from this year’s Spring ACS meeting in Dallas; hopefully the CCDC exhibition stand will have lots of visitors in Montreal! It promises to be a busy congress for us; as we’re involved in several events.
My colleague Suzanna Ward will be giving an entertaining talk on some of the more interesting structures in the CSD. The presentation is called “A Celebration of 700,000 Small Molecule Crystal Structures” and Suzanna will take this opportunity to thank you, our depositors, and highlight some of your remarkable achievements before finding out how you would like to see us develop in the future.
We’re also hosting a workshop where we’ll be giving participants a chance to get some hands-on experience with some of the more advanced features of the CSD System. The workshop aims to demonstrate some of the applications we offer for crystal engineering or solid form analysis, with experienced CCDC staff on hand to help you get the most out of our software.
Both these events require registration, more information is available from our events page
or the IUCr2014 website.
Colin Groom is also giving a talk, at the MS-30 microsymposium, on “Data to Knowledge: How to Get Meaning from Your Result” on the afternoon of Thursday 7th August. We’re sponsoring Poster prizes for young scientists too, so there should be plenty of opportunities for you to meet up with CCDC staff throughout the Congress; please come and say hello!
