Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce ADD2016, the 3rd edition of the School

and Conference on Analysis of Diffraction Data in real-space:


co-organized by the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) and the European

Synchrotron (ESRF), and taking place:

                   7 to 11 March 2016

at the European Photon and Neutron (EPN) campus in Grenoble, France.

Building on the positive experience of ADD2011 (12-14 October 2011) and

ADD2013 (18-22 March 2013), the 4-day programme of ADD2016 offers a

2-day School followed by a 2-day Conference, basically the same format

as ADD2013.

The ADD2016 School and Conference aim to deepen the understanding and

to further the training of the various communities working on real-space

data analysis for neutron and x-ray diffraction techniques.  Fourier

transformation of diffraction data into real-space, traditionally used for

the structural determination of liquids and glasses, is now increasingly

employed for partially-disordered crystalline powder samples.

The scientific scope of ADD2016 will also include single-crystal diffuse

scattering, for which the School proposes a 5th hands-on tutorial for

training in using the YELL software, in addition to the hands-on tutorials

for DISCUS, PDFGUI, RMCprofile and EPSR that were offered for ADD2013.

As opposed to ADD2013, each tutorial for ADD2016 will take place twice,

so that students can participate in two different tutorials.

Real-space analysis of total-scattering data or “PDF-analysis” provides

a snapshot of the local structural disorder within the sample, which is

complementary to the space-time averaged structure provided by the

well-known Rietveld refinement of diffraction data.  PDF-analysis now

enjoys a wide field of application, in particular to nano-structured


More detailed information, including on-line registration and a

preliminary programme, can be found on the webpage link given above.

Note that registration is already open, and that the deadline for

abstract submission is 21 January 2016.

Looking forward to seeing you in Grenoble,

The organizers:

   Michela Brunelli (SNBL/ESRF)

   Gabriel Cuello (ILL)

   Henry Fischer (ILL)

   Gavin Vaughan (ESRF)
