Nuovo Workshop della Commissione S&C

Carissimi Colleghi,

la Commissione Strumentazione e Calcolo di AIC è lieta di annunciarvi l’organizzazione del Workshop dal titolo:

‘Microscopi Giganti: introduzione alle applicazioni delle grandi sorgenti’

che si terrà a Milano il 13 Maggio, 2019.

Lo scopo del workshop è quello di fornire un’introduzione alle grandi sorgenti (luce di sincrotrone e neutroni), sia dal punto di vista teorico che applicativo.

Il programma del workshop prevede una iniziale descrizione teorica della interazione materia-radiazione (raggi X e neutroni), evidenziandone differenze e

complementarietà, seguita da presentazioni distinte sui sincrotroni e sulle sorgenti di neutroni. Verrà inoltre fornita una overview sulle principali linee

per la diffrazione da polveri presenti in Europa. Il workshop proseguirà con le introduzioni alle varie applicazioni: alta pressione e temperatura, materiali

disordinati, tomografia a raggi X, per concludersi con i consigli pratici su come scrivere un buon proposal.

Tutte le lezioni saranno tenute da esperti del settore che hanno lavorato o lavorano presso le grandi sorgenti.

Il workshop è indirizzato a laureandi, dottorandi, tecnici e ricercatori (per i quali è gratuito), e ai professionisti operanti nel privato e/o nell’industria

per i quali è richiesta una quota di registrazione di 70 € (+IVA).

 

Inoltre, sono disponibili borse a parziale copertura delle spese sostenute dai giovani accademici provenienti da fuori regione.

 

Tutti i dettagli sono disponibili al seguente link: https://microscopigiganti.wordpress.com/.

Dall’indirizzo https://microscopigiganti.files.wordpress.com/2019/03/workshopaic4.3.pdf) è possibile scaricare la locandina che vi chiediamo di utilizzare per pubblicizzare l’evento.

I membri della Commissione Strumentazione e Calcolo sono a disposizione per eventuali chiarimenti.

Oxford school in neutron scattering

16th Oxford School on Neutron Scattering

 

Date and Venue: 2-13 September 2019, St. Anne’s College, University of Oxford.

 

About the School: The school is intended primarily for scientists, student and postdoctoral researchers, who are new to the field of neutron scattering. It provides an excellent introduction to the field, which is developed through to its application in contemporary research. Lectures and tutorials covering all aspects of the theory and practice of a variety of neutron scattering techniques will be given by international experts. Students will gain a comprehensive grounding in modern techniques and applications at both steady state and pulsed neutron sources and have the opportunity to hear about the latest research being carried out with the technique. The school has its origins in 1966,as the first one of its kind, and many famous neutron practitioners have attended the schools of the past 50 years.

 

Programme: The first week of the school introduces students to the core concepts of neutron scattering, neutron sources and instrumentation, neutron diffraction and spectroscopy. The second week splits tuition into three focused science areas, physics, chemistry and soft/bio, and provides lectures on neutron techniques and concepts which are most relevant to each area. Each lecture will be accompanied by a tutorial session. The students will be asked to make short presentations to their peers about their current research projects and work in pairs to write a beamtime proposal. The students will also have the opportunity to visit the ISIS Pulsed Neutron and Muon Facility in Didcot, and to attend a number of evening lectures from prestigious names from the neutron community. In addition, this year are providing an option maths refresher for those students who may want it.

 

Application: To apply for the school you will need to submit both a personal statement and a statement from your academic supervisor that will be used in the selection process. Applications should arrive no later than the 12th May 2019. The course is normally highly oversubscribed, so we encourage applicants to apply in plenty of time, as late applications will not be accepted. Applicants are selected for the course based on their requirements for neutron scattering techniques as part of their present and future research activities. Applicants will be notified shortly after of the outcome of their application. The school is open to all applicants worldwide.

Fees: School fees for 2019 are £590 (~ €670) per residential student which includes the cost of a en-suite room during the school, breakfast and evening meals, teaching materials, drinks reception and the gala dinner. There are 50 residential places available. There are also 10 non-residential places for students who do not require local accommodation, at a school fee of £170, which includes teaching materials, drinks reception and gala dinner. Fees will be payable once the names of successful applicants have been announced.

ADD2019: da Michela Brunelli

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce ADD2019, the 4th edition of the School and Conference on Analysis of Diffraction Data in real-space:

https://workshops.ill.fr/e/add2019

co-organized by the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) and the European Synchrotron (ESRF), and taking place 17 to 22 March 2019 at the European Photon and Neutron (EPN) campus in Grenoble, France.

Building on the positive experience of ADD2011 (12-14 October 2011), ADD2013 (18-22 March 2013) and ADD2016 (7-11 March 2016), the 5-day programme of ADD2019 includes 2-1/2 days for the School followed by 2-1/2 days for the Conference, basically the same format as for ADD2016.

The ADD2019 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 ADD2019 pertains to both x-ray and neutron diffraction techniques, and will again include single-crystal diffuse  scattering as an integral part of the School and the Conference.  The  School proposes pedagogic lectures on real-space data-analysis techniques followed by 7 parallel sessions of hands-on tutorials for training with various data-modelling software packages: DISCUS, PDFgui, DiffpyCMI, EPSR, Spinvert, RMCProfile, and Yell.  The Conference proposes 8 invited talks and about 16 additional oral contributions, as well as a poster session.

Real-space analysis of total-scattering data or “PDF-analysis” provides  a snapshot of the local structure within the sample, and is therefore sensitive to both static and dynamic atomic correlations, and hence 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 materials.

More detailed information, including on-line registration and a preliminary programme, can be found on the webpage link given above.
Note that registration will soon open, and that the deadline for abstract submission is 27 January 2019 (oral and poster contributions), and 24 February 2019 for late abstract submission (posters only).

Looking forward to seeing you in Grenoble,

The organizers:
Michela Brunelli (DUBBLE/ESRF)
Gabriel Cuello (ILL)
Henry Fischer (ILL)
Gavin Vaughan (ESRF)
