The first BornAgain School and User Meeting, organized by the MLZ
Scientific Computing Group, will take place on 21-22 November 2016 at
Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Zentrum Garching, Germany.

BornAgain (http://bornagainproject.org) is a novel software package to
simulate and fit small-angle neutron and x-ray scattering at grazing
incidence. It provides a generic framework for modeling multilayer
samples with smooth or rough interfaces and with various types of
embedded nanoparticles.

This School will introduce students, instrument scientists, and both
novice and experienced researchers working in the field of GISAS or
reflectometry at large to new opportunities for simulating and fitting
their data. In compact introductory lectures, we will outline the theory
implemented in BornAgain, and explain the design of the software.
Extensive hands-on tutorials will highlight practical aspects of GISAS

Registration is available at https://webapps.frm2.tum.de/indico/event/34/

At the User Meeting, users of BornAgain are kindly invited to share
their experiences, to present first results, but also to report on
difficulties, to suggest improvements and to request missing features.
This feedback offers a unique opportunity to influence the further
development of BornAgain.

For convenience of colleagues from overseas, this event is scheduled as
a satellite of the GISAXS2016 workshop
(https://indico.desy.de/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=14264), which takes
place on November 16-18 in Hamburg.
