3rd Annual CCP-SAS Project Workshop
May 23-25, 2016
NIST Center for Neutron Research
While there is no fee for attending this Workshop,
it is being held on the NIST campus. As such all participants will be required to register with NIST
BEFORE May 13, 2016
in order to gain access!
This Workshop follows on from the previous two workshops at NIST in February 2014 and
Diamond in October of 2014 and the interim closed project meeting held at SAS-2015 in Berlin
in September 2015. The Workshop will consist of three parts. On Monday will be the presentation sessions
of broad interest to the scientific community. Attendees are encouraged to bring posters explaining
their use of these kinds of modeling techniques or illustrating their need for such. Tuesday morning will
be devoted to a meeting between the CCP-SAS project and individuals or institutions with activities in
related software development areas, interests in participating in the CCP-SAS current or projected activities
and facilities with potential interest in deploying CCP-SAS products on their servers for use by their users
and thus have a potential interest in helping with maintenance activities. Discussions will focus on current
activities, directions and needs with a goal of elucidating adjustments to CCP-SAS activities in the remaining
funding cycle, and, more importantly of developing collaborations with other projects and identifying areas for
joint funding applications moving forward. Finally on Wednesday there will be two hands on tutorial sessions:
How to wrap existing code using GenApp to produce a web GUI and run on a cluster backend, and code development
in the SASSIE framework.

The easiest way to travel to the hotels from any of the three nearby airports is to go to the airport shared ride
counters and book a shuttle. Cost should be on the order of $35-$45/person. For larger groups a taxi will probably
be more economical.
