3rd European Olex2 Meeting

3rd European Olex2 Meeting

Author: OlexSys Ltd/24 October 2019/Categories: Software, OlexSys Ltd, Workshops

The workshop is now fully booked. If you register now, then we will place you on a waiting list and will inform you as soon possible if a place becomes available.


We will hold our 3rd European Olex2 meeting as guests of The University of Edinburgh from 18th -- 20th March 2020. In last year's meeting, we tried to organise two streams: 'Getting Started with Olex2', and 'Olex2 for Advanced Users'. This year, we will try something different, and we will 'stagger' the workshops. We will begin with a beginner's introduction to Olex2 on the afternoon of the first day (Wednesday, 18th March). On Thursday, we will assume some basic familiarity with Olex2 and cover the full range of Olex2 features, including:

  • Structure Refinement & Model Building
  • Restraints & Constraints
  • Working with Disordered Structures
  • Using a solvent mask (SQUEEZE/olex2.mask)
  • Making pictures
  • CIF file generation in Olex2
  • Finishing Structures for Publication
  • Twinning
  • NoSpherA2

On Friday morning, we will cover advanced topics and hope that we will achieve a role reversal here: We would love to hear your suggestions, concerns, comments -- and in general learn from you so that we can make Olex2 even better.
