18. November 2013 - 22. November 2013 FullProf School-2013

ILL, Grenoble, France


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 6th FPSchool will take place the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble from 18th to 22nd November 2013(*). The lectures and tutorials will give the essential tools necessary for an efficient use of the FullProf Suite at an average level. In addition to general applications, magnetic structure determination and refinement will be specifically addressed.

Lectures :

The school lasts 4 full-days: three days dedicated to general applications plus one day dedicated to the analysis of magnetic diffraction data.
There are 6 theoretical modules plus 10 practical hands-on sessions. For the practical sessions, participants should bring their own computers with FullProf Suite already installed.

Participants :

The school is aimed at 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 beginners, to read the FullProf manual in advance and even try to follow any of the online tutorials.

The maximum number of participants is limited to 30, which ensures 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 is applied. For information, the acceptance rate is about 1:3.

(*) Note there is an optional excursion organised Saturday 23rd November, so you may need to do your travel in order to stay an extra day.
