Event Name

1st International Summer School of Crystallography

Start Date 11th May 2014
End Date 17th May 2014
We are pleased to announce the first International Summer School of Crystallography at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science at DESY, Hamburg (D). As part of the International Year of Crystallography 2014, Prof. Carmelo Giacovazzo will lecture on the basics of crystallography, as well as, the basics of modern phasing methods in protein crystallography covering basic mathematical understanding of crystallographic point and space groups, diffraction experiments, structure factor calculations, systematic absences, determination of space groups and many additional topics. Participants will also learn modern applications of protein crystallography using advanced light sources, such as 3rd generation synchrotron and XFELs.

The summer school program is geared for PhD students working in the field of crystallography, but exceptions for motivated PostDocs and MSc students can be made. The course will mostly cover mathematical background of crystallography, hence we are looking for students, having a (bio)physics background. This will NOT be a workshop covering protein crystallographic programs but rather will be theory oriented.
