Scuola AIC a Bari (29 agosto-2 settembre)

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 2018 edition of the Italian Crystallographic Association (AIC) International Crystallography School (AICS2018) entitled "Powder Diffraction: Theory, Software and Applications", organized by the AIC Commission on Crystallographic Teaching in collaboration with research teams of CNR and University of Bari. 
The School will be held in Bari, Italy, at ‘Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra e Geoambientali, Campus Universitario’, on 29 August-02 September 2018.

The aim of the AICS2018 school is to give an overview on the characterization of polycrystalline materials through X-ray Powder Diffraction. The topics of the school span from the fundamental principles of powder diffraction to advanced methods of data collection and analysis with examples of applications of scientific and industrial interests. Theory will be strictly followed by practical sessions centred on relevant software so that participants familiarize with some widely used computer programs for data analysis and interpretation of the results. The school is mainly addressed to PhDs and young researchers working in the field of Materials Science, Chemistry, Physics, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Cultural Heritage and Engineering.

We can keep the registration fee relatively low as well as offer a convenient package including accommodation, lunches and social activities. Moreover, a number of bursaries are available to cover the registration fee in full or partially.

The deadline for bursary application is 20 May 2018, while registration will close on 15 June 2018.

More detailed information is available on the School web page

Please find attached a poster of the School for displaying at your local institution.

We kindly ask you to disseminate the information about the School to people in your group/institute/department/company who might be interested.

We are looking forward to welcoming you and/or some of your colleagues at AICS2018 in Bari. 

With best wishes,

Chairs of the Scientific Committee

Associazione Italiana Zeoliti: giornate studio a Modena

Le *giornate di studio dell’Associazione Italiana Zeoliti 2018* si terranno
a Modena il 20 -21 giugno 2018 presso il *Dipartimento di Scienze
Chimiche e Geologiche* dell’*Uni*versità di Modena e Reggio Emilia, in
occasione del trentennale della scomparsa del Professor Glauco Gottardi,
fondatore del gruppo modenese di ricerca sulle zeoliti naturali.

Le giornate *prevedono* sessioni scientifiche orali e poster e keynotes
di prestigiosi colleghi. La ricchezza di offerte culturali, la qualità
delle infrastrutture e la centralità geografica di Modena renderanno ancora
più interessante questo appuntamento.

La partecipazione dei giovani ricercatori sarà incentivata con varie
iniziative, tra le quali grants e registrazione a prezzo ridotto per
dottorandi e postDoc.

Sarà possibile inviare i contributi per comunicazioni orali e poster dal 28
febbraio al 10 aprile 2018.

Le informazioni relative a registrazione e sottomissione degli abstracts
sono disponibili sul sito web:

Vi aspettiamo a Modena per le Giornate AIZ 2018

Remote data collection @GrandiSorgenti

Dear Colleagues,

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.
There will be an Instruct-ERIC / OPEN-Sesame Workshop, at the Weizmann
Institute of Science (May 14-18, 2018), describing these protocols for
remote data collection at DLS and ESRF with real-time demonstrations and
the possibility for participants to actually collect
data on their own or test crystals at the ESRF and DLS.
The data processing pipelines and the structure determination pipelines,
that are available at the synchrotron sites, will be explained and used.
This is particularly important due to the 1 year shut-down of the ESRF staring
in late in 2018.

For students/postdocs requiring travel support this will be possible.

There will be excellent opportunities to interact with experts from ESRF,
DLS, MAX-IV (Lund) on how to optimally benefit from this advanced
technology made available at these synchrotron for on-site and remote data
collection for the structural biology community. Computing facilities and
expertise are also available for using the remotely collected data in
subsequent structure determination and structure validation calculations.

The workshop is particularly targeted for students having projects aimed
at 3D structure determination using biomacromolecular crystals, working at
institutes that are a member of SESAME and/or working at institutes of
Instruct-ERIC countries relatively far from European Synchrotrons, as well
as for students from non-EU countries working at EU-institutes who need to
apply for visa, restricting efficient access to perform on-site data
collection. Students are encouraged to sent crystals in advance, which
will then be shipped to DLS or ESRF.

Details on these shipments will be provided to the participants of the

Please apply by the deadline 11-Mar-2018 at:

Best regards
