Announcing 2nd Open Babble - Pre-registration now open

Pre-registration is now open for the 2nd Open Babble, a hands-on Open Babel workshop presented by Open Babel developers. This will take place on July 5-6 2011 at the Unilever Centre in the Dept of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, UK.

The workshop will start on the afternoon of the 5th July, and finish on the evening of the 6th. The precise topics to be covered will depend on the attendees’ interests but we anticipate covering topics such as how to get the most from the Open Babel command line applications and the GUI, to writing Python scripts and developing software based on the Open Babel library.

Since only 20 places are available, we are running a pre-registration process to select a diverse range of attendees, from novices to expert users, and from both academia and industry. The registration fee will be €70 for academics, and €220 for industry attendees. This includes one lunch and dinner, but does not include accommodation.

We also note that sponsorship opportunities are available.
