Dear Colleagues,

 We are pleased to announce the workshop "New Trends in Magnetic
Structure Determination" to be held in Grenoble at the Institute
Laue-Langevin from 12 to 16 December 2016. We invite you to visit our
website https://indico.ill.fr/indico/event/53/ for more details and
application, which will be open until 15th September 2016.

 Scientific scope:

 This workshop aims to contribute to the training of scientists in the
treatment of neutron diffraction data for magnetic structure
determination, putting the stress in the new improved methods and tools
made available in the last years. In particular, the methods that make a
combined use of magnetic symmetry groups and representational analysis
will be shown and practiced (both for commensurate and incommensurate
structures). The workshop will be based on selected lectures together
with intensive hands-on sessions using the most popular computer
programs (Isotropy Software Suite, Bilbao Crystallographic Server,
FullProf Suite, Jana2006, etc.). 

 The lectures and tutorials will provide the essential tools necessary
to determine complex magnetic structures, and show the most recent
capabilities added to traditional software.


 The Workshop consists of 5 days dedicated to acquire a general overview
of the methods of magnetic structure determination and analysis, in the
frame of the specific free software presently available. A preliminary
program can be consulted in the link below: 
 For the practical sessions, participants should bring their own
computers with FullProf Suite and Jana2006 already installed.

 Lectures and tutorials will be presented by Juan Rodríguez-Carvajal
(Grenoble, France), J. Manuel Pérez-Mato (Bilbao, Spain), Branton J.
Campbell (Provo, USA), Laurent Chapon (Grenoble, France), Harold Stokes
(Provo, USA), Vaclav Petricek (Prague, Czech Republic) and Luis Elcoro
(Bilbao, Spain)


 The school is aimed at PhD students and experienced scientists with a
good knowledge of diffraction techniques and crystallography. As usual,
among the participants there will be a mix of different levels of
experience in using the different crystallographic tools (Isotropy
Software Suite, Bilbao Crystallographic Server, FullProf Suite,
Jana2006, etc.), therefore during this workshop both theoretical
lectures and practical sessions will be combined to ensure an optimal
benefit from this workshop. 
 The maximum number of participants is limited, which guarantees the
quality of the given training. The selection of candidates is based on
the motivation letter and CV (plus a recommendation letter from the
thesis supervisor for PhD students). If necessary, a criterion of
balance between laboratories and countries will be applied. 

 Many thanks in advance for helping us in circulating this information.

 Best regards,

 Juan Rodríguez-Carvajal 
 Juan Manuel Pérez-Mato
