25th IUCr congress satellite — IUCr2021 Computing School
09 Aug 2021 - 14 Aug 2021 • Nové Hrady, Czech Republic
The Computing School will cover aspects that are relevant to all fields of crystallographic computing. As the main topic we will focus on the determination and the use of eigenvectors and eigenvalues and their applications in the different fields of crystallography. Applications range from the well known principal component analysis and other statistical and machine learning techniques to modelling using Markov processes, or optimization of functions. Fields such as image processing, information theory, and crystallography make use of these in many of its most fundamental methods. It impacts directly macromolecular crystallography in both phasing and refinement aspects. In small molecule crystallography and materials science research, it allows the understanding of very fundamental physical properties of matter. In this school, our aim is to learn and teach about this general topic from the computing aspect of the fundamentals, but also the computing tools and the data.

25th IUCr congress satellite — School on SAXS/SANS and BioSAXS/BioSANS data analysis
11 Aug 2021 - 13 Aug 2021 • Kutná Hora, Prague, Czech Republic
The school is intended to provide participants with brief theoretical background of small-angle scattering theory, followed by introduction to application of SAXS (and SANS) in Biological field (protein SAXS/SANS) and materials SAXS/SANS fields. Majority of the time will be in parallel sessions where lecturers will demonstrate examples of analysis of typical cases using standard commonly used software packages. Participants will be encouraged to follow instructors on their own computers. This course is intended for students and young scientists attending IUCr meeting.

25th IUCr congress satellite — TOPAS Intensive Course
12 Aug 2021 - 14 Aug 2021 • Prague, Czech Republic
We are pleased to announce a TOPAS Intensive Course with hands-on training. The primary topic of this course is to teach participants the operation of TOPAS in Lauch Mode operation (scripting mode) for structure determination and refinement using both Bragg diffraction as well as PDF data. The course is open to all applicants interested into the structure analysis capabilities of TOPAS.
