Subject: Announcement: International Summer School of Crystallography - May
2014, Hamburg, Germany
Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce the first International Summer School of
Crystallography at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science at DESY,
Hamburg (D). As part of the International Year of Crystallography 2014,
Prof. Carmelo Giacovazzo will give a full week of lectures on the basics of
crystallography, as well as the basics of modern phasing methods in protein
crystallography. The course will cover basic mathematical understanding of
crystallographic point and space groups, diffraction experiments, structure
factor calculations, systematic absences, determination of space groups and
many additional topics. After the discussions of theory, one afternoon will
be spent to learn about modern applications of protein crystallography
using advanced light sources, such as 3rd generation synchrotron and XFELs.
The course will be given mainly for PhD students working in the field of
crystallography, but exceptions for motivated PostDocs and MSc students can
be made. The course will mostly cover mathematical background of
crystallography, hence we are looking for students, having a (bio)physics
background. This will NOT be a workshop covering protein crystallographic
programs but rather the theory behind those programs. The course will start
Sunday (11.05.2014) around lunch and will end Saturday (17.05.2014) around

The registration fee is 100 EUR per person including coffee breaks and

Accommodations can be made at the DESY Guest House: 70 EUR per person for 7
nights (10.-17.05.2014).

Application deadline will be 28th of February 2014 and notification of
accepted applications will be sent during March 2014. The applications will
be managed via the DESY Indico system:


Applicants must provide a motivation letter, as well as a CV, directly to
the organizer Cornelius Gati (cornelius.gati at cfel.de). Places and
accommodation are limited to 30 students in total.

Please contact Cornelius Gati regarding further questions (
cornelius.gati at cfel.de).

We are looking forward to welcome you in Hamburg!
