We are offering RapiData 2011, the thirteenth 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 3-8 April 2011.  Students could be at any level from 
advanced undergraduate to full professor.  The course should accommodate 48 
students total. All students are encouraged 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 

For the ninth time we will hold a short lecture course on the fundamentals of 
crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 3 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, Sal Sclafani, and Alex Soares
