The school aims to bring together experts of X-ray techniques and (graduate) students, postdocs as well as interested researchers. The topics revolve around three large areas: diffraction, spectroscopy and microscopy. All these topics will include basic introductory talks and novel applications in current research including the various subfields of physics, chemistry, materials and life sciences. There will also be a short introduction to synchrotron and XFEL sources. We mainly recommend the school to MSc and PhD students and post doctors, however senior scientists could also find value in attending. In order to facilitate the participation of young students, we waived the registration fee, and the first 70 registered participants will receive complimentary accommodation and lunch throughout the event. (This includes lunch on Wed, Thu, & Fri, and accomodation for the nights of Tue, Wed & Thu.)
At the end of the school, a Certificate will be issued to those who successfully complete a short test. This option could be used to obtain a credit at the participant’s home institution.
We will also provide an opportunity to present posters during the school.
The school is supported by the European XFEL, the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, and the Research Centre for Natural Sciences in Budapest.
The language of the school is English.
