This workshop is intended especially for chemists and crystallographers working with molecular crystals. The main focus of the workshop will be the structure determination of modulated molecular crystals. The goal of the workshop is to demonstrate that modulated structures can usually be solved and refined quite easily using just the standard crystallographic knowledge and some information about the specifics of modulated compounds, without deep mathematical background.
The workshop starts at 9am and finishes at 6pm. Detailed workshop program will appear HERE.

Topics of the workshop:
- Introduction to the program Jana2006
- Introduction to the structure analysis of modulated structures
- Solution of several simple 3d structures with Jana2006
- Solution of several simple modulated structures
- Related topics: twinning, disorder, rigid bodies ....
Each participant should bring a laptop with operating system WindowsXP or higher, with Administration rights. Installation of all necessary software will be done at the beginning of the workshop. Wireless internet connection including Eduroam is available at the lecture room. Limited number of computers can be provided to people without laptop (please inform us before the workshop that this would be needed)
