Online registration and payment for CPDW - Fifth Canadian Powder
Diffraction Workshop
A quickish update from a message sent in February. There is now a
University of Waterloo administered online registration and payment
system for the Fifth Canadian Powder Diffraction Workshop (being held at
the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada  - Friday 28th to
Saturday 29th of May 2004).
On-line registration includes booking of university accomodation if you
wish to take this recommended accomodation option. (Cdn $46.20 per night
for single room, Cdn $31.90 per night for shared double room; excluding
Workshop text as sent in February follows:
                Fifth Canadian Powder Diffraction Workshop
William G. Davis Centre, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
                Friday 28th to Saturday 29th of May 2004
                      http://www.cins.ca/cpdw/ <http://www.cins.ca/cpdw/> 
These two days are better described as a powder diffraction workshop
being held in Canada than a "Canadian workshop", and are open to all who
can make it to Waterloo. Thanks to the continued generous support of the
University of Waterloo in the use of their facilities, registration
costs have been maintained at a very reasonable price. Waterloo is
located in Southern Ontario and the closest passenger airport is the
Pearson International Airport in Toronto. Airport shuttles operate to
the University of Waterloo campus. For those who like to fly themselves,
Waterloo Regional Airport is available for use as well.
The main theme of the workshop is in the fundamentals of using powder
diffraction, and assisting participants in using the Rietveld method.
Lectures on a variety of topics are planned for the morning, with the
afternoon practical sessions concentrating on using GSAS for performing
Rietveld analysis for structure refinement and quantitative phase
Registration Costs:
   Students: Cdn $125 (US~$100)
   Academics and not-for-profit organisations: Cdn $150 (US~$120)
   Commercial and Industrial: Cdn $175 (US~$140)
Chair: Professor Bruce Torrie (University of Waterloo)
     Dr Robert Von Dreele (Argonne National Laboratory)
     Dr Angus Wilkinson   (Georgia Institute of Technology)
     Dr Ian Swainson      (National Research Council of Canada)
     Lachlan Cranswick    (National Research Council of Canada)
Talks include:
  Sample preparation, data collection considerations and phase
  identification using powder X-ray diffraction
  Introduction to Powder Profile Refinement
  Profile Refinement with GSAS
  Synchrotron Experiments
  Why and when to use neutron powder diffraction
  Using Rigid Bodies in GSAS
  Using bond "restraints" and compositional/charge balance
   "restraints" in GSAS
With funding from the Canadian Institute of Neutron Scattering,
Student Bursaries are available for Canadian based students in provinces
outside Ontario and Quebec. On-line booking of the reasonably priced
University accommodation is possible.
As workshop participants may like to use the meeting as a jumping off or
stopping point for a vacation with friends and/or family (e.g., Niagara
Falls is less than 2 hour drive away), a good starting list of
Accompanying Person(s) resources is also included.
A poster for the workshop is downloadable at:
If there are students and/or XRD users in your institute who might
benefit from attending such a workshop, we would be appreciate it if this
were brought to their attention. Please download the poster and post on
departmental notice boards if appropriate.
