Set-up Session

Please bring your own Laptops along to the workshop. It would also be very useful if you had set up CrysAlisPro, Olex2 and any other crystallographic software (ShelXL, PLATON) before the workshop starts. This half-hour, pre-workshop session is your chance to sort out any last-minute problems you might have experienced.

Please note: This session is in parallel with the Plenary talk of the ICCC. It gives you a unique chance to interact with the authors of CrysAlisPro and Olex2.


Data Collection and Reduction with CrysAlisPro (Mathias Meyer)

This hour will be lecture-style -- we will introduce the key concepts or working with Olex2 and work through one or two very simple example structures.


Olex2 -- What it can do for you  (Horst Puschmann)

We will introduce the key concepts of Olex2 and work through one simple example structure. We will then showcase a number of selected features of Olex2 that will help with your structural work with organometallic and metal-organic compounds.

12.15 pm


This workshop is free to attend and no formal registration is required, but please register your interest. This means we can keep in touch with you and send you valuable information ahead of the workshop.
