5th ReNaFoBiS Oleron workshop

Start Date 1st Jun 2018
End Date 8th Jun 2018
Description

The workshop is dedicated to Integrative Structural Biology

The main objective of this workshop is to offer a theoretical and practical training in the different techniques used in integrative structural biology (X-ray diffraction, small-angle X-ray scattering, NMR, cryo-electron microscopy, sample preparation for structural biology,  biophysical methods to study and characterize macromolecular interactions). The goals are to explain and illustrate, to an audience mainly composed of doctoral students and young researchers, the contributions and limitations of each method with a strong emphasis on their complementarity and future developments.
The official language of the workshop is French but presentations may be given in English, depending on the overall profile of the students. For practicals, English and French speaking groups may be organised.

Deadline for registration: April 9, 2018 (maximum number of participants: 25)

Event Name

Electron Crystallography. 51st Erice Course.

Start Date 1st Jun 2018
End Date 10th Jun 2018
Description

In the era of nanoscience, the size of particles to be investigated gets smaller and smaller, and traditional techniques used to characterise materials are being stretched beyond their limit. Electron Crystallography (EC) is a powerful tool to study crystal structure and properties of nano-sized materials and fills the void of information left when other methods struggle to provide convincing data for nanoscale objects.

Exciting developments such as aberration correctors, dedicated specimen-holders, highly sensitive cameras, new data acquisition techniques, automated routines for data collection and new data processing software and methods allow electron crystallographers to determine crystal structures from micro- and nanocrystals with increasing accuracy and astonishing level of detail. The Course intends to review the traditional as well as the modern methods of electron crystallography; it will be divided into three major fields:

  1. provide a strong background on crystallography in general and electron crystallography in particular.
  2. introduce students to state-of-art techniques of electron crystallography including experimental techniques, data acquisition and data processing as well as to supporting techniques such as spectroscopy.
  3. cover different approaches for structure analysis and derive structure-property relationship.

The course will cover a range of materials, from organic molecules like pigments and drugs through complicated inorganic and metallic materials and minerals to protein structures. In addition to the standard crystalline materials it will focus also on amorphous, nano- and meso-crystalline state.

 Registration is open (will close on 30 November 2017)

First Erice International School on Quantum Crystallography. 52nd Erice Course

Start Date 1st Jun 2018
End Date 10th Jun 2018
Description

This is the inaugural School on Quantum Crystallography at Erice. Quantum Crystallography refers to the combination of crystallographic information from diffraction or other scattering techniques with quantum mechanical theory. It is also an extension of quantum chemistry to periodic systems.

The School attempts to give a snapshot of this evolving field, complete with workshops demonstrating state-of-the art software. Topics will include: the beginnings of the Quantum Crystallography in the measurement of the electron charge or spin density; the Hohenberg-Kohn theorem and the importance of the X-ray diffraction experiment; multipole-based models for the charge density; polarizable-density models; momentum based experiments and orbital density expansions; joint refinement of charge, spin, and momentum density.

Registration is open (will close on 30 November 2017)

Les Houches/TSRC Workshop on Protein Dynamics

Start Date 27th May 2018
End Date 1st Jun 2018
Description

This international workshop is a forum for presenting and discussing results from state-of-the-art experimental approaches (including optical spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, XFELs, electron microscopy, atomic-force microscopy and scattering methods), and theoretical and computational methods to studying protein dynamics.

The Les Houches – TSRC Protein Dynamics Workshop complements the long-standing TSRC Protein Dynamics Workshop, held every other year in the odd calendar years at the Telluride Science Research Center in Telluride, Colorado.

In Les Houches, about 30 invited speakers will give oral presentations that comprise a pedagogic introduction to the methodology employed, followed by applications from their own work. Each 30-minute presentation will be followed by 15 minutes of discussion. In addition to the 30 invited speakers, there will be space for 30 student/postdoctoral participants that can present posters.Its relatively small number of participants favors exchange of ideas across disciplines and fostering of collaborations.A few slots for oral presentations are still available.

The Ecole de Physique des Houches can be conveniently reached from Geneva Airport (including the train station at the airport with direct connections to Zurich) by shuttle-bus service within 80 minutes.
