Online Edition of International Tables for Crystallography: Current State and Future Developments

Bilbao, 31 August – 3 September 2011

The workshop will provide an introduction to the current state and future developments of the online version of International Tables for Crystallography, including in particular the new symmetry database. This new web server provides access to databases of symmetry information on crystallographic groups in standard and alternative settings, allowing the study of their group-subgroup relations, including subgroups and supergroups, coset decompositions and the splitting of Wyckoff positions. Applications relevant to specific topics in solid-state physics and chemistry, such as magnetic symmetry, phase transitions and relations between crystal structures, will form an important part of the workshop.

The maximum number of participants in the workshop is limited to 60. Financial support is available for grant applications and the deadline for applications is May 15, 2011. Depending on the available funds, retired scientists will be offered special fees. Registration and additional information: http://www.cryst.ehu.es/ITschool
