Bombannes 2018 Bombannes 2018

The Bombannes summer school is devoted to the practical «state-of-art» approach to scattering methods, using neutrons, as well as X-ray and light sources – today’s key techniques to study structure and dynamics in systems containing colloids, polymers, surfactants and biological macromolecules. Since 1990 the Bombannes school series introduces, on a fundamental level, the current methodology of static and dynamic scattering techniques and their applicaiton to soft matter systems. It provides with a period of 2 years advanced training for young researchers with a working place in European laboratories at post-graduate and post-doctoral level.

Deadline for pre-registration: 21 February 2018

The series of “Bombannes”-schools proposes advanced training for young post-graduates and post-doctors (typically aged 22 to 35 years) by recognized soft-matter experts from all over Europe.The school is devoted to a practical approach to neutron, X-ray, and light scattering experiments involving theoretical principles, mathematical transformation back to real space and structural model calculation of the scattering.It is aimed at young soft matter scientists (using scattering methods in their home laboratory or at large-scale facilities) who have already some background in this domain and want to learn complementary techniques and to exchange their experience.The primary objective is to explain current methodology of static and dynamic scattering techniques (avoiding both under and over-exploitation of data) rather than a general course on colloids and polymers.Basic information on data interpretation, on the complementary properties of the different types of radiation, as well as information on recent applications and developments will be presented.The planned activities will ensure permanent contact between lecturers and students and will guarantee that all participants stay the whole week together. The students will present their current project or problem in a compulsory short oral presentation followed by a discussion.
