ECACOMSIG organised a two day Computing Workshop based in Rovinj, Croatia. It was associated with the European Crystallographic Meeting (ECM29) which was also in Rovinj.

The Workshop provided an opportunity for younger developers to meet and engage with senior developers and also with their peers in Crystallographic Methods development.

The Workshop was held over two full days (21st & 22nd August); there was an introductory lecture and "get-together" on the evening of 20th August, so participants should plan to arrive on that afternoon.

The Workshop was open to a maximum of 40 applicants. A limited number of bursaries was available to assist with the cost of attendance. For more information on bursaries, please contact .

Generous sponsorship has allowed us to set the registration fee (including lunch and refreshments on 21st and 22nd August) to € 100, excluding accommodation.

Registration (including accommodation bookings) is via the ECM29 website

All queries should be sent to either or .
