3rd International Summer School of Crystallography

May 29 - June 4, at the Centre for Free-Electron Laser Science at DESY, Hamburg.

Detailed information can be found on the school web page:

Application deadline: March 1, 2016

Prof. Carmelo Giacovazzo will give a full week of lectures on the basics of crystallography and modern phasing methods in protein crystallography. The course will cover mathematical understanding of crystallographic point and space groups, systematic absences, diffraction experiments, structure factor calculations, and other related topics. Besides the lectures, there will be talks on applications of protein crystallography using advanced light sources, such as 3rd generation synchrotron and X-ray Free Electron Lasers (FELs).

The course is aimed at PhD students working in the field of crystallography, but exceptions can be made for motivated PostDocs and MSc students. This will NOT be a workshop covering protein crystallographic programs.

The registration fee is 100 EUR per person, and includes coffee breaks and lunch.

Applicants must(!) provide a motivation letter and a CV, directly to the organizer Max Wiedorn ( T

he number of participants is limited to 35.

Accommodations can be made at the DESY Guest House: 70 EUR per person for 7 nights (28.05 - 04.06.2016).
