Total Crystallography is a universal methodology for crystallographic structure solution and refinements of arbitrary polycrystals and powders. The method determines the molecular arrangement within each grain. It applies to simple inorganic structures as well as to large macromolecules and it attempts to probe grains on all scales from 100 nm to 1 mm.

The 3-day Workshop aims at explaining the TotalCryst methods and demonstrating the FABLE package. The technique will be introduced via lectures on the basic principles behind the methods as well as application examples from diverse fields. Oral or poster presentations are invited from all participants. Extensive software demonstrations and hands-on tutorials will be offered. There is an option to work on personal data, provided contact is made to organizers beforehand.
