HANDS 2019
HFIR/SNS Advanced Neutron Diffraction and Scattering Workshop
Oak Ridge, TN. June 9 - June 14, 2019

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in conjunction with North Carolina State University, and support from the National Science Foundation and the Shull Wollan Center - a Joint Institute for Neutron Scattering, celebrates a decade of neutron scattering education in structural biology at ORNL with the HFIR/SNS Advanced Neutron Diffraction and Scattering workshop (HANDS 2019).

Detailed information can be found on the workshop web page: https://conference.sns.gov/hands2019/

Symposium speakers include 2012 and 2014 workshop participants Dr Nayomi Plaza Rodriguez (US Forestry Service) and Dr Anthony Banks (Harvard medical School); Dr Carla Mattos (NEU); Dr Zimei Bu (CCNY) and ORNL's Minh Phan and Dean Myles.

Application deadline: April 29, 2019

Up to 15 fellowships available for travel and accommodation expenses for participants from the U.S. institutions. Please provide an estimate of your travel expenses. No registration fee.

The workshop aims at enabling structural biologists to fully exploit the latest instrumentation and software development at the SNS and HFIR facilities at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Participants of HANDS 2019 will become familiar with neutron techniques with hands-on experiments in sample preparation, crystallography, small angle scattering, reflectometry and neutron spin echo. The workshop is designed for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty with limited to no experience with neutron sciences.
