A one-week "Summer School on Methods and Applications of Neutron
Spectroscopy" will be held August 9-13, 1999 at the NIST Center for
Neutron Research.
For information go to

In the lectures we shall emphasize neutron scattering methods that
employ long wavelength neutrons to achieve high energy resolution,
allowing one to study dynamical processes over a wide range of time
scales, from ~100 ns to ~1 ps.  There will also be talks by
internationally recognized experts describing opportunities for
spectroscopic research using cold neutron instruments, and there will be

hands-on demonstrations using four of the cold neutron instruments in
the NCNR guide hall.  The lectures and demonstrations will be targeted
at those with little or no previous experience with neutron inelastic
scattering methods.

The Summer School is sponsored in part by the National Science
Foundation, and limited support for graduate students, postdocs and
junior faculty will be available.  Attendance will be limited to 32
