March 22-25th, 2006 Seefeld, Austria, in Hotel Veronika
Travel details on how to reach Seefeld are in attachment.
The lectures will be scheduled in the morning and in the late afternoon/evening so as to allow for down-hill, cross-country skiing during the central part of the day.
This is a workshop for about 20 students on the use Soft X-rays in crystallography of biological macromolecules.
Lectures will cover aspects of data collection strategies, analysis of data, derivatisation, phasing soft X-rays and hardware requirements.
Speakers and topics to be covered include:
Manfred Weiss: On the use of longer X-rays in macromolecular crystallography Gwyndaf Evans: The long wavelength X-ray beamline for macromolecular crystallography at the Diamond Light Source Gordon Leonard: TBA Uwe Mueller: Long wavelength X-ray diffraction experiments at BESSYs PX-beamlines Marjolein Thunnissen: The Mad-station at Cassiopeia, Max-Lab, Lund Edoardo Busetto: Diffraction developments at ELETTRA George Sheldrick: Experimental phasing with SHELXD/D/E Paul Tucker: The influence of data-collection wavelenght on radiatic damage Chen Yang: In-house S and SE phasing with Crk radiation Ulrike Wagner: Xenon in Protein Crystallographyn Michele Cianci: Experiences with softer X-Rays on BL10@SRS UK Andy Thompson: Facilities for Macromolecular Crystallography at SOLEIL, a medium energy synchrotron source Bi Cheng Wang: TBA Isao Tanaka: TBA Bram Schierbeck: First Result of the Axiom, a New High-speed, Photon-counting X-ray Area Detector Jules Hendrix: The Selenium-Based Direct-Conversion Detector for Protein Crystallography Takashi Tomizaki: TBA MAX-INF2 members and speakers from MAX-INF2 member institutions will have to pay their expenses from their MAX-INF2 grant. Thanks to generous support from MAX-INF2 we are able to provide some accommodation (2 in a room). Applications should be made by Email to the secretary of the course Ursula Thalhammer e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org ****Before 15th February 2006**** There is no formal application form but applicants should attach one PDF file containing no more than one page containing name, address, telephone and fax numbers, email address, nationality, M or F, brief details of your academic qualifications and of your research project and stating how you will benefit from the course. Applicants who would wish to present a scientific contribution (oral or poster) should also provide the title and abstract.
