Title

IUCr 2014 Crystallographic Computing School

Location

Rm A2260, Building H, Cité Collegiale,
801 promenade de l’Aviation, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Date

July 29 – August 4, 2014

Description

The 2014 IUCr Crystallographic Computing School will take place at La Cité collégiale in Ottawa, Canada. It will introduce modern methods of programming crystallographic calculations in a series of lectures and in-depth tutorials by leading crystallographic software developers. Our teachers are drawn from across the crystallographic world and include experts in protein, small-molecule and powder crystallography. By working together, we aim to share what we know with the next generation of crystallographic developers.

The registration fee will be C$325.
The registration deadline is June 27th 2014.

Accommodation

Cité Collegiale Residences: $300 for six nights ($50/night) for one bedroom WITHIN a shared two-bedroom suite with full kitchen and private bathroom. Preferences for sharing can be sent to Patrick Mercier at Patrick.mercier@nrc-cnrc.gc.ca

Title

Rietveld refinement for beginners: bring your data!

Location

InterContinental Montréal
360 Rue Saint Antoine Ouest, Montréal, QC H2Y 3X4, Canada

Date

August 4, 2014

Description

This satellite meeting sponsored by PANalytical will provide training for non experts in Rietveld method. Theoretical aspects of the Rietveld method will be presented with hands-on tutorials devoted to practical cases using x-ray and neutron data. Trial version of HighScorePlus software 4.0 (valid for 3 months) will be installed on attendees PC. The final session of this satellite meeting will be devoted to real scientific problems where the attendees are asked to bring their own powder diffraction data.

Cost

Registration:

Title

The Role of Magnetic Symmetry in the Description and Determination of Magnetic Structures

Location

Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research (at McMaster University near Toronto)

Date

August 14-16, 2014

Description

Lecture presentations and hands-on workshop tutorials will focus on the role of magnetic symmetry in the solution and refinement of magnetic structures.  This will include discussions of magnetic neutron diffraction, the proper description of a magnetic structure (e.g. supercell, wave or irrep-mode parameters), magnetic space groups and superspace groups, magnetic systematic absences, the use of symmetry operators to constrain magnetic models, and the use of symmetry in widely-available structure solution/refinement packages.

Cost

Registration: $200 CAD
