There are still seats available!  Please apply!  We will close 
applications at 8AM EST Monday 4 February 2008 for RapiData 2008, the 
tenth 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 6-11 April 2008.  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/RapiData2008/.
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 sixth time we will hold a short lecture course on the fundamentals of
crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 6 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 from 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,

Council for Science.  At this course no barriers will exist beyond the
application procedure that would prevent the participation of bona fide
