New Neutron and X-ray Scattering Techniques for Soft Matter
16-21 August 2010, Smögen, Sweden. Organized by Chalmers Soft Matter Graduate School.
Chalmers Soft Matter Graduate School is organizing a summer school on new x-ray and neutron scattering techniques for soft matter. The aim is to bring together students working on different issues in soft matter with instrument scientists and researchers developing new x-ray and neutron techniques and methods. This is of particular interest with the new possibilities offered by the planned MAX IV and ESS facilities in Sweden as well as other leading neutron and x-ray centres around the world, such as ILL, ISIS, PETRA III and XFEL.
The summer school starts in the evening on the 16/8 and ends with breakfast 21/8 (see the preliminary program below). The location of the school is Sea Lodge in Smögen, located right by the sea, see attached map. Besides lectures and stimulating scientific discussions there are good opportunities for swimming and other types of water sports.
To apply to the summer school send an email to Aleksandar Matic not later than 28/5. The number of participants is limited to 30 and there is a priority to those students enrolled in the "Soft Matter Graduate School", other students are accepted on first come first serve principle. It is free of charge for all students doing their PhD at a Swedish university. For students from abroad the fee is 350 Euros (including accommodation and all meals).
If you have any questions or queries please contact: Aleksandar Matic, +46-730-346294 (also during the school).
