Podcast Series: Remote X-ray Data Collection from European Synchrotrons 

The Workshop on Remote X-ray Data Collection from European Synchrotrons was hosted by the Weizmann Institute of Science, Instruct-ERIC and OPEN-SESAME, 14-18 May 2018. Remote data collection is routinely possible at Diamond Light Source (DLS, Oxford) and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF, Grenoble) and other European synchrotrons are also planning to make this available. The workshop invited experts from across Europe to discuss and demonstrate the protocols for remote data collection. Explanation was given of data processing pipelines and structure determination pipelines available at synchrotron sites. 

More information available from the workshop website, and a short summary report of the results of the workshop can be found here. Sessions were recorded to produce podcasts, listed below.
