We are offering RapiData 2014, the sixteenth offering of our popular 

      Rapid Data Collection and Structure Solving at the NSLS: A Practical
             Course in Macromolecular X-Ray Diffraction Measurement

The course will be held 27 April - 2 May 2013: 
http://www.bnl.gov/RapiData/. Students could be at any level from advanced 
undergraduate to full professor. The course should accommodate 48 students 
total.  We encourage all students to bring their own specimens for data 
collection, and to bring old data for the data-reduction and 
structure-solving tutorials.

Please read the Course Announcement at http://www.bnl.gov/RapiData/. 
You'll see that many experts in the field will be available for lectures 
and tutorials. In addition to MX there will be opportunity for learning 
about correlated MX and spectroscopy, and SAXS.  You'll find the 
application materials on the Course Application tab at this site.

For the twelfth time we will hold a short lecture course on the 
fundamentals of crystallography for roughly five hours on Sunday 27 April. 
The body of the RapiData course really requires that students have a 
healthy knowledge of crystallography.  For potential students who have 
some experience but are shaky about fundamentals, this course will help. 
There will be an additional fee for the fundamentals course, to pay for 
Saturday night accomodations and food on Sunday morning and noon.

Latin American Scientists: Several scholarships are available, from the 
International Union of Crystallography, to pay partial travel and 
subsistence costs for Latin-American students and junior faculty (no more 
than 30 yrs).  Please apply for the course, and then contact R. Sweet 
(sweet at bnl.gov) if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.

In accordance with the standards of the International Union of
Crystallography, we observe the basic policy of non-discrimination,
affirming the right and freedom of scientists to associate in
international scientific activity without regard to such factors as
citizenship, religion, creed, political stance, ethnic origin, race,
colour, language, age, or gender, in accordance with the Statutes of the
International Council for Science.  At this course no barriers will exist
beyond the application procedure that would prevent the participation of
bona fide scientists.

Please apply yourself, or send your students to our course,
