Hi Peter, Glen,
I'll be going (or trying to at least).

> Thanks for forwarding that Glen - it would be great if any of

> Is anyone interested & reasonably close to Cambridge UK?

> > --------------------------------------------
> > What, why and how?
> > ------------------
> > The world of the PDB will be changing rapidly and profoundly over the
> > few
> > years. A major change will involve the transition from PDB to mmCIF/PDBx
> > the principal deposition and dissemination format (see
> > http://www.wwpdb.org/news/news_2013.html#22-May-2013 and
> > http://wwpdb.org/workshop/wgroup.html). To help software developers in
> > area of structural biology to make the transition and begin supporting
> > mmCIF/PDBx format in their own programs, wwPDB (http://wwpdb.org/) is
> > organising a programmers workshop. This two-day event will include
> > by
> > experts in mmCIF/PDBx (http://mmcif.rcsb.org/) and developers of
> > language-specific libraries or packages (C/C++, Java, Python). Ample time
> > will
> > be devoted to tutorials and individual "code hacking", with the experts
> > available to assist the workshop participants. Confirmed tutors include
> > Adams (Phenix), Eugene Krissinel (CCP4), Garib Murshudov (Refmac),
> > Prlic (RCSB), Sameer Velankar (PDBe) and John Westbrook (RCSB).
> > When and where?
> > ---------------
> > The workshop will be held at the EMBL-EBI (http://ebi.ac.uk/) in
> > Cambridge, UK, on 20 and 21 November 2013.
> > How much?
> > ---------
> > If you are selected as a participant, we expect you to pay for your own
> > travel
> > to and from Cambridge. However, there is no fee for this workshop, and we
> > will
> > provide accommodation (at the HolidayInn Express in nearby Duxford;
> > http://www.hiexpresscambridgeduxford.co.uk/), lunches and a workshop
> > on
> > the 20th (all thanks to generous funding from the Wellcome Trust to
> > Who can apply and how?
> > ----------------------
> > This workshop is intended for "high-powered" software developers in any
> > of structural biology and structural bioinformatics whose products
> > (read/write) PDB data - e.g., X-ray, NMR, 3DEM, SAXS/SANS, hybrid
> > visualisation, validation, modelling, docking, structure prediction,
> etc. To
> > ensure a high ratio of tutors to workshop participants, the number of
> > participants is limited to 15.
> > You can apply for the workshop by sending an e-mail to Sameer Velankar at
> > PDBe
> > (sameer at ebi.ac.uk) no later than 31 August 2013. Please include:
> > - a brief description of the software program(s) or package(s) you have
> > developed or are developing, what it does, in which field, how many
> > relevant publications, etc.;
> > - what programming language(s) you are specifically interested in;
> > - how you would benefit from this workshop;
> > - any specific topics or questions you would like to see addressed in the
> > workshop.
> > If the workshop is oversubscribed, we will use the information and
> > motivation
> > provided by the applicants to select the participants.
> > Participants are expected to bring their own laptop with compilers etc.
> > installed. No previous knowledge of mmCIF/PDBx is strictly needed, but
