The 2016 RapiData Course on Data Collection and Structure Solution will take place at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) from April 24-29 2016. The aim of the course is to educate and train scientists in data collection and processing methods at synchrotron beamlines, using state-of-the-art software and instrumentation. The course will comprise hands-on experiments at the SSRL beamlines, software tutorials, and lectures on sample preparation, data collection and reduction, phasing and complementary methods. For a more complete description of the course goals and format see http://smb.slac.stanford.edu/rapidata-2016/about.html

The deadline for applications is January 4th 2016. To apply follow this link:

Several scholarships are available from the International Union of Crystallography to cover partial travel and subsistence for Latin-American students, postdocs and junior faculty. Additional funds may be also be awarded to other participants without restrictions on a per need basis. The instructions to apply for these scholarships can be found in the application page.

RapiData 2016 will take place immediately after  Crystallization: 
Focus on Micro and Nano Crystals and High Throughput Methods (April 19-22 2016), also at SSRL. Together, the two courses will cover most aspects of crystal structure determination and we encourage participation in both. 
For information about the Crystallization course see http://smb.slac.stanford.edu/news/cryst_focus_on/cryst_focus_on_2016/
or contact the organizers: Vivian Stojanoff (vivian.stojanoff at gmail.com) or Silvia Russi (srussi at slac.stanford.edu)

The Organizing Committee of RapiData 2016 shall observe the basic policy of non-discrimination and affirms the right and freedom of scientists to associate in international scientific activity without regard to such factors as ethnic origin, religion, citizenship, language, political stance, gender, sex or age, in accordance with the Statutes of the International Council for Science. At this course no barriers will exist which would prevent the participation of bona fide scientists.
