Lachlan’s Software Fayre

The Software Fayre is dedicated to the memory of the late Lachlan Cranswick.

The Software Fayre is organized for the demonstration of free and/or open-source software used for the analysis of powder diffraction data.

It will take place during lunches and poster sessions in the AURIGA room (June, 13-14) and in the ROOF room (June, 15).

To obtain information and book a time slot for presentation, please contact Dr. Corrado Cuocci (

The slots are filled according to a “first come first served” policy.
