We draw your attention to the 8th ILL Annual School on Neutron Diffraction Data Treatment using the FULLPROF suite, to be held in Grenoble at the Institute Laue-Langevin from 14 to 18 December 2015 (*).

Scientific scope

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, Rietveld method, multipattern analysis, microstructure determination and refinement will be given particular attention.


The school lasts 4.5 days: 2 days dedicated to general applications plus 2.5 days dedicated to the analysis of different problems on condensed matter science. Moreover a sponsored session conducted by PANalytical will be also held during the school.

The theoretical modules focus on different problems with will be complemented with different 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 of 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 to follow a few of the online tutorials.

The maximum number of participants is limited to 30, which ensures the quality of the training provided. The selection of candidates is based on his/her motivation letter and CV (plus a recommendation letter from the thesis supervisor for PhD students). If necessary, balance between laboratories and nationalities will be taken into account. For information, about 1 out of 3 candidates is accepted.
