We are offering RapiData 2012, the fourteenth offering of our popular 

     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 2012: http://www.bnl.gov/rapidata/. 
Students could be at any level from advanced undergraduate to full 
professor.  The course should accommodate 48 students total.  We encourage 
all students to bring their own specimens for data collection, and to 
bring old data for the data-reduction and structure-solving tutorials.

Please read the Course Announcement at http://www.bnl.gov/RapiData/.
You'll see that many experts in the field will be available for lectures
and tutorials. You'll find the application materials on the Course
Application tab at this site.

For the tenth 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 (under 40 
yrs).  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, 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.

Please apply or send your students to our course,

Bob Sweet, Sonya Kiss, and Alex Soares
