Training schools: State of the Art Analytical Techniques

As part of their training program, CO2 react fellows can attend training schools related to their field of study.

As information becomes available about these training opportunities, it will be posted here.

POWDER DIFFRACTION AND RIETVELD REFINEMENT SCHOOL, DURHAM, UK 2016

The next Powder Diffraction & Rietveld Refinement School will take place at Durham University, 10-14th April 2016.

As in previous years, we will offer a combination of lectures covering the theoretical aspects of powder diffraction and Rietveld refinement, problem sessions/tutorials and extensive hands-on practical sessions using a variety of modern software packages.

Topics to be covered will include:

Data collection strategies for X-ray and neutron diffraction
Constant wavelength and time of flight diffraction
Modelling peak shapes (including microstructure analysis)
Indexing powder patterns
Rietveld, Le Bail and Pawley fitting methods
X-ray and neutron combined Rietveld refinements
Restrained refinements
Rigid body refinements
A number of more specialised and advanced optional topics (ab-initio structure solution, parametric and symmetry-mode refinements)

Lectures will be given by Prof. John Evans, Dr. Ivana Evans, Dr. Jeremy Cockcroft and Prof. Andy Fitch.

Online applications can be submitted until 22nd January 2016, at the Powder Diffraction & Rietveld Refinement School 2014 website: http://community.dur.ac.uk/john.evans/webpages/pdrr_school_2016.htm

TRAINING COURSE IN DEEP GEOTHERMAL SYSTEMS CAS DEEGEOSYS, September 2015

In Switzerland and Europe, the number of specialists in deep geothermal systems is very limited. This Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS DEEGEOSYS) is dedicated to train scientists and engineers in several fields of applied geothermics. They will be capable of organizing and leading exploration and development projects of deep geothermal resources (deep aquifers and Enhanced Geothermal Systems).

The CAS DEEGEOSYS includes four oneweek long modules separated by a twomonth break. Each module covers a specific topic.
Module 1 Geothermics and Geophysics
Module 2 Geochemistry and Hydrochemistry
Module 3 Drilling and Logging
Module 4 Reservoir Evaluation and Production

EXAFS FOR BEGINNERS COURSE: 13-23 April, 2015

The course "EXAFS for beginners" will be given at the MAX IV Laboratory in Lund 13-23 April. The course gives a comprehensive introduction for tentative EXAFS users at MAX IV Laboratory, and provides the basic concepts of EXAFS spectroscopy experiment design, theory and data analysis. Participants will also be given an opportunity to perform experiments at the I811 beamline at the MAX IV Laboratory.

The course is free of charge for participants from academia. The number of participants is limited to 25 and priority will be given to applicants from Swedish universities, but a limited number of places will be reserved for applicants from universities outside Sweden. A limited>number of spaces will also be available to non-academic participants at a fee of 15 000 SEK.

When applying for the course, please provide a short CV and a description of the importance of EXAFS for your scientific projects in order to facilitate the selection of participants. Participants are responsible for organizing their own travel and accommodation.

Deadline for registration: January 30
