The deadline to apply for RapiData 2005 is Monday 14 February.
Rapid Data Collection and Structure Solving at the NSLS: A Practical
Course in Macromolecular X-Ray Diffraction Measurement
The course will be held 10-15 April 2005. Students could be at any level
from advanced undergraduate to full professor. 48 students will be
accepted; 24 will bring their own specimens for data collection. Please
read the course description at http://www.px.nsls.bnl.gov/RapiData2005/
and find the application materials there.
For the third time we will hold a short lecture course on the fundamentals
of crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 10 April. The body of
the RapiData course really requires that students have a healthy knowledge
of crystallography. For potential students who have some experience but
are shaky about fundamentals, this course will help. There will be a small
additional fee for the fundamentals course, to pay for Saturday night
accomodations and food on Sunday morning and noon.
Latin American Scientists: Several scholarships are available from the
IUCr International Union of Crystallography to pay partial travel and
subsistence costs for Latin-American students and junior faculty. Please
apply for the course, and then contact R. Sweet if you are interested in
applying for a scholarship. In accordance with the standards of the
Internation Union of Crystallography, we observe the basic policy of
non-discrimination, affirming the right and freedom of scientists to
associate in international scientific activity without regard to such
factors as citizenship, religion, creed, political stance, ethnic origin,
race, colour, language, age, or gender, in accordance with the Statutes of
the International Council for Science. At this course no barriers will
exist beyond the application procedure that would prevent the
participation of bona fide scientists.
