The 13th National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering<http://neutrons.ornl.gov/conf/nxs2011> will be held June 11 - 25, 2011, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory. The application deadline is February 28, 2011.  Details about the School (and the application form) are provided by the Argonne Division of Educational Programs at http://www.dep.anl.gov/nx.

The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate graduate students on the utilization of major neutron and x-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, will include basic tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. Students will conduct short experiments at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source (APS) and Oak Ridge's Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) facilities to provide hands-on experience for using neutron and synchrotron sources.  Notes and videos (neutron portion only) of the lectures from last year's school are available at http://neutrons.ornl.gov/conf/nxs2010/lecture-notes-videos.shtml.
