We are offering RapiData 2007, the eighth offering of our popular course:

    Rapid Data Collection and Structure Solving at the NSLS: A Practical
           Course in Macromolecular X-Ray Diffraction Measurement

The course will be held 22-27 April 2007.  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/RapiData2007/.
You'll see that many experts in the field will be available for lectures and
tutorials, and you'll find the application materials at this site.

For the fourth time we will hold a short lecture course on the 
fundamentals of crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 22 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 
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 (sweet At bnl.gov) if you are 
interested in applying for a scholarship.  In accordance with the 
standards of the International 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.
