We are offering RapiData 2011, the thirteenth offering of our popular course:

    Rapid Data Collection and Structure Solving at the NSLS: A Practical
           Course in Macromolecular X-Ray Diffraction Measurement

The course will be held 3-8 April 2011.  Students could be at any level 
from advanced undergraduate to full professor.  The course should 
accommodate 48 students total. All students are encouraged to bring their 
own specimens for data collection, and to bring old data for the 
data-reduction and structure-solving tutorials.

Please read the Course Announcement at http://www.bnl.gov/RapiData/. 
You'll see that many experts in the field will be available for lectures 
and tutorials. You'll find the application materials on the Course 
Application tab at this site.

For the ninth time we will hold a short lecture course on the fundamentals 
of crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 3 April. The body of 
the RapiData course really requires that students have a healthy knowledge 
of crystallography.  For potential students who have some experience but 
are shaky about fundamentals, this course will help. There will be a small 
additional fee for the fundamentals course, to pay for Saturday night 
accomodations and food on Sunday morning and noon.

Latin American Scientists: Several scholarships are available, from the 
International Union of Crystallography, to pay partial travel and 
subsistence costs for Latin-American students and junior faculty (under 40 
yrs).  Please apply for the course, and then contact R. Sweet 
(sweet from bnl.gov) if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.

In accordance with the standards of the International Union of 
Crystallography, we observe the basic policy of non-discrimination, 
affirming the right and freedom of scientists to associate in 
international scientific activity without regard to such factors as 
citizenship, religion, creed, political stance, ethnic origin, race, 
colour, language, age, or gender, in accordance with the Statutes of the 
International Council for Science.  At this course no barriers will exist 
beyond the application procedure that would prevent the participation of 
bona fide scientists.

Please apply or send your students to our course,

Bob Sweet, Sal Sclafani, and Alex Soares
