The application deadline is 8AM EST Monday 9 February for RapiData 2009, 
the eleventh 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 19-24 April 2009. Students could be at any level from
advanced undergraduate to full professor. 48 students will be accepted; 24
will bring their own specimens for data collection. Please read the course
description at http://www.px.nsls.bnl.gov/RapiData2009/. You'll see that many
experts in the field will be available for lectures and tutorials, and you'll
find the application materials at this site.

For the seventh time we will hold a short lecture course on the fundamentals of
crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 19 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
