The CrystalGrid Collaboratory Foundation Workshop, Southampton, 13-17 September, 2004: a selection of presentations
The objective of the workshop was to discuss and plan the establishment of a global collaboratory for the development and application of eScience concepts and technology to the field of chemical crystallography and dependent or related subjects. The lead roles are taken by the UK National Crystallography Service (Southampton, UK), Indiana University Molecular Structure Center (Bloomington, IN, USA) and the Australian Molecular & Materials Structure Network (Sydney, Australia).
A five day schedule of talks and discussions drew on work and experiences from numerous and varied groups:
Monday 13th, Tuesday 14th September.
Topics:- Grid Infrastructure, Grid Services – Software and Hardware; Security, Licence Keys, Automation etc.
Monday AM.
1. Introduction and Welcome. (Mike Hursthouse, Soton).
