Dates: 2 to 6 March 2015
Registration: starts 1 November 2014
Venue: Institute Laue-Langevin, Grenoble
The 7th ILL Annual School on Neutron Diffraction Data Treatment using the FULLPROF suite will be held in Grenoble at the Institute Laue-Langevin from 2 to 6 March 2015 (*).
FPS aims to contribute to the training of scientists in treatment of X-ray and neutron diffraction data.
The school is based on intensive hands-on sessions using the computer programs of the FullProf Suite. The lectures and tutorials will provide the essential tools necessary for an efficient use of the FullProf Suite at an intermediate level. In addition to general applications, magnetic structure determination and refinement will be given particular attention.
The school lasts 4.5 days: 2 days dedicated to general applications plus 2.5 days dedicated to the analysis of magnetic diffraction data.
There are 6 theoretical modules plus 10 hands-on sessions for which each participant should bring his/her own laptop with the FullProf Suite already installed.
The school is intended for PhD students and experienced scientists with a basic knowledge of diffraction techniques and crystallography. As usual, among the participants there will be a mix of different levels of experience in using FullProf. It is recommended, to those who consider themselves as beginners, to read the FullProf manual in advance and even to try to follow a few of the online tutorials (for which some videos will be available soon).
The maximum number of participants is limited to 30, which ensures the quality of the training provided. The selection of candidates is based on his/her motivation letter and CV (plus a recommendation letter from the thesis supervisor for PhD students). If necessary, balance between laboratories and nationalities will be taken into account. For information, about 1 out of 3 candidates is accepted.
This school is part of the NaMES (Neutron and Muon European Schools). Thanks to NMI3 funding, European students can have their expenses covered to attend the school.
NMI3 has been to the 2013 school edition and talked with the participants and organisers. To find out about the experience of the participants of the 2013 FullProf School you can read our article and watch our video here!
