Event Name

3rd International Summer School of Crystallography (ISSC16)

Start Date 29th May 2016
End Date 4th Jun 2016

The school will be held at the Centre for Free-Electron Laser Science at DESY

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

Speakers: Prof. Carmelo Giacovazzo (University of Bari), Prof. Henry Chapman (CFEL / DESY, University of Hamburg), Prof. Arwen Pearson (CUI, University of Hamburg), Dr Thomas White (CFEL / DESY), Dr Adrian Mancuso (XFEL.eu), Dr Thomas Schneider (EMBL), Gleb Bourenkov (EMBL), more TBA

Besides the lessons there will be guided tours of PETRAIII/European XFEL, a BBQ and a harbor boat trip scheduled.

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

Applicants must(!) provide a motivation letter and a CV, directly to the
organizer Max Wiedorn (max.wiedorn@cfel.de). The 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).
