Dear Colleagues,

We would like to remind you of our upcoming 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
Oscar Fabelo
