Dear Colleagues,

What:  A three-day workshop on the "The Role of Magnetic Symmetry in the Description and Determination of Magnetic Structures".  Hands-on tutorials on the exploitation of magnetic symmetry in ISODISTORT, FullProf, JANA and the Bilbao Crystallograpic Server.  Lectures will address both theory and practice.  See http://magcryst.org/meetings/cmsworkshop2014/ for details.

When:  August 14-16, 2014

Where:  Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research at McMaster University.  An outstanding summer venue with many scenic attractions nearby (e.g. Toronto and Niagra Falls).

Why:  A great deal of new infrastructure (software, data and standards) is evolving rapidly in support of the use of magnetic symmetry to solve/refine magnetic structures.  Don't miss this opportunity to catch up.

Who:  Our presenters include
-- Mois Aroyo (Universidad del Pais Vasco, Spain)
-- Stuart Calder (Oak Ridge National Lab, USA)
-- Branton Campbell (Brigham Young University, USA)
-- John Greedan (McMaster University, Canada)
-- J. Manuel Perez-Mato (Universidad del Pais Vasco, Spain)
-- Vaclav Petricek (Institute of Physics, ASCR, Czech Republic)
-- Vladimir Pomjakushin (Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland)
-- Juan Rodriquez-Carvajal (Institut Laue Langevin, France)
-- Wieslawa Sikora (AGH University of Science and Technology, Poland)

How much:  Student residence-hall accommodations. Low registration fees.  Young-scientist travel bursary awards still available.

Please forward this information to colleagues, post-docs and students with an interest in the structures and properties of magnetic materials, and encourage them to attend.  This will be a great workshop for experts and novices alike.

Best wishes,
Branton Campbell
