Tuesday 23 August 2022 – Saturday 27 August 2022

The 33rd European Crystallographic Meeting has an exciting scientific program, and will be held in Versailles. Two topical public lectures have also been prepared, covering the restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral and the celebration of the bicentenary of the death of Abbé Haüy.

CCDC is proud to present a workshop as part of the event, for researchers to learn how to better leverage the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) in their research.

We will also be exhibiting on stand 19. Please come by to meet the team and hear about latest news and updates.


CCDC Workshop:

Title: Cambridge Structural Database for structural chemists and biologists

Date: Tuesday, 23rd August

Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM CEST (8:00 AM - 3:00 PM BST)

  • 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM:  Visualisation: Mercury (small molecules) and Hermes (proteins)
  • 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM: Analysis of molecular structure with Mogul for chemical and biological crystallographers
    [lunch break]
  • 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM: Advanced analysis: intermolecular interactions with Full Interaction MapsCSD-Materials overview, and basics of protein-ligand docking with GOLD  
     (with a 10 minute break between CSD-Material and GOLD)

The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD), managed by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) and a reference in crystallochemistry, lies at the interface of chemistry and structural biology. In addition to a very comprehensive database, software tools allow researchers to extract knowledge from the data.

Before the opening of this meeting, the French Network of professional crystallographers (ЯÉCIPROCS), the structural biology group of the French Association of Crystallography (AFC) and the CCDC wish to welcome chemists and biologists in a 'satellite' workshop on the tools of the CSD. After a general presentation and demonstration of the available tools, a more practical part requiring the use by the participants of their own laptops (internet access and electrical plugs required) will take place.
