Dear all,

Reminder for CCP-EM Spring Symposium.  Similar to CCP4 Study Weekend
this conference
aims to provide a forum to highlight state of the art developments in
computational cryoEM and related themes as well as showcasing outstanding
recent applications. We promote an inclusive, friendly atmosphere welcoming
both old and new to the community. Topics range from detector developments,
image processing, single particle reconstruction, high resolution model
building & validation, machine learning, tomography and electron

The conference will be held 11-12th April at Keele University 2018
conference centre. Confirmed speakers include:

Mark Basham (Diamond)
SuRVoS: software for volume segmentation.

Sacha de Carlo (Dectris)
Detector technologies for high-resolution TEMs.
