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

        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 2014: 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,
