We are offering RapiData 2006, the seventh offering of our popular course:

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

Less than three weeks remain to the application deadline.  There are many 
seats still open.

The course will be held 23-28 April 2006.  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/RapiData2006/. 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 third time we will hold a short lecture course on the fundamentals
of crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 23 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, and another from the U.S. Nat'l 
Committee for 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 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.
