[ccp4bb] 2018 HERCULES School - Neutron & Synchrotron Radiation Science

HERCULES 2018 - European School
28 Years of Neutron & Synchrotron Radiation Science

2018 session:   25 February-30 March, 2018

HERCULES is a European course for PhD students and young researchers using Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation for applications in BiologyChemistryPhysicsHard & Soft Condensed Matter.

The 1-month school includes lectures (60%), hands-on practicals and tutorials at partner institutes (Elettra and FERMI in Trieste, Italy; ESRFILL in Grenoble; Soleil and LLB in Paris-Saclay; PSI in Villigen, Switzerland) and Grenoble Laboratories (CEA, CNRS, EMBL, IBS). (*)
(*)  also, participation of DESY and the European XFEL to be confirmed for 2018 due to scheduled down-time.

The school  includes a common part and two parallel sessions:
Biomolecular, soft condensed matter structure & dynamics
Physics and chemistry of condensed matter

Why join Hercules ?
- to learn new techniques using neutron and synchrotron radiation
- to expand your theoretical and practical knowledge, not only for your present research but for your scientific career
- to experiment these techniques on world-class instruments & beamlines
- to build a network of relations with fellow young researchers and experienced teachers from all around the World

Bursaries/reduced costs
- A limited number of bursaries will be available either to reduce registration fees or cover travel costs.
