Dates announced for the FullProf School 2016

Training of scientists in treatment of X-ray and neutron diffraction data will be provided on May 9-14. The deadline for applications is March 27.


Dates: May 9 – 14
Venue: Institut Laue-Langevin, Grenoble, France

School series: The 2013 FullProf School School series: The 2013 FullProf School

NMI3 funded the school for the past 4 years. Watch our 2013 school video to know what participants think of the school.

FPSchool aims to contribute to the training of scientists in treatment of X-ray and neutron diffraction data.The school is based on intensive hands-on sessions using the computer programs of the FullProf Suite.

The lectures and tutorials will provide the essential tools necessary for an efficient use of the FullProf Suite at an intermediate level. In addition to general applications, the new features on material science data analysis and magnetic structure determination and refinement will be given particular attention.

The 2016 FPSchool will take place at the Institut Laue-Langevin, in Grenoble, from 9 to 13 May 2016.


The school lasts 4.5 days: 2 days dedicated to have a general overview of FullProf Suite as well as to general applications, plus 2 days dedicated to the analysis of magnetic diffraction data.

There are 6 theoretical modules plus 10 hands-on sessions for which each participant should bring his/her own laptop with the FullProf Suite already installed.


The school is intended for PhD students and experienced scientists with a basic knowledge on diffraction techniques and crystallography. As usual, among the participants there will be a mix of different levels of experience in using FullProf. It is recommended, to those who consider themselves as beginners, to read the FullProf manual in advance and even try to follow a few of the online tutorials.

NaMES: Neutron and Muon European Schools

The NMI3 initiative on Education aimed to attract young people to the field of neutron and muon science. By integrating and supporting a number of high-quality schools it generates a distributed training facility for neutron and muon scattering in Europe. This initiative was called NaMES (Neutron and Muon European Schools).
