We are offering RapiData 2010, the twelfth 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 11-16 April 2010.  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 eighth time we will hold a short lecture course on the fundamentals of 
crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 11 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.  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
