Computational aspects of the joint use of SAXS and NMR
                    A WeNMR Workshop

Workshop Web page:
Date and time:   May, 27th, 2011, 11:30 - 19:00
Location:     CERM Conference Room,
             Centro di Risonanze Magnetiche -
             Università di Firenze, Via L. Sacconi 6
             50019 Sesto Fiorentino, ITALIA
Scope of the workshop:
We shall discuss the ways of integrating SAXS and NMR in
the daily routine of structural biologists and define the
computational needs for the broader integration. Emphasis is
put to the methodological developments and to the advanced
computational tools including grid computing and remote experiments.

The number of external participants of the Workshop is limited to 25.
