Registration is on the basis of 'first-come first-served'. Registration
Workshop on Scattering Methods for Nanoscale Structure Characterization
Sponsored by IUCr Commission on Small Angle Scattering
Full day workshop organized by Dr. J.D.
This workshop is designed to acquaint researchers who currently
do not practice small-angle scattering with the fundamentals of
SAS methods as they are applied to the characterization of such
diverse structures as synthetic polymer molecules, protein complexes,
alloys and ceramics, composite materials, self-organizing molecular
structures, engineering plastics, and microphotonic materials.
Workshop instructors will describe the principles of small-angle
X-ray and small-angle neutron scattering (SAXS and SANS) and will
demonstrate how these principles are applied to the practical
elucidation of structure on distance scales ranging from nanometers
to some tens of micrometers.
Workshop on Protein Crystal Growth
Full day workshop organized by Naomi
The aim of this workshop is to present the state of the art in
practical methodology for crystal growth of biological macromolecules.
Some of the methods are also suitable for the crystallization
of small molecules. The workshop will consist of lectures/videos
dealing with methods for screening and optimisation of crystallization
conditions, including high throughput trials, membrance proteins,
new ways of growth in gels, heterogeneous nucleans, etc. It will
conclude with a panel of experts who will answer questions from
the audience. Questions and comments regarding this workshop should
be directed to Naomi Chayen, Division of Biomedical Sciences Imperial
College, London SW7 2AZ, U.K.
