CCP5 People
CCP5 is actively managed by several committee members headed by a chairperson. These executive committee members are expertises in wide-range of scientific disciplines in areas of molecular simulations. Once a year, a large steering committee meets to discuss the project and to appoint new executive committee members. In addition, CCP5 also runs interim meetings on quaterly basis at the Dresbury Laboratory to inform up to date progress of various CCP5 projects, including software development.
