Participants at the JCNS Lab Course 2016.

Dates: September 4-15, 2017
Venue: Jülich and Garching, Germany

Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) is happy to announce that application is open for the 21st Laboratory Course Neutron Scattering taking place September 4-15, 2017 in Juelich and Garching/Munich, Germany.

The course will consist of one week of lectures and exercises and one week of practical training at the neutron scattering facilities of Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum MLZ in Garching. It is the aim of the course to give a realistic insight into the experimental technique and its scientific power.

Application and SINE2020 support

Students of physics, chemistry, material science and biosciences are invited to apply for participation. There is no tuition fee. Accommodation and meals during the course will be provided by JCNS. Travel expenses will be reimbursed within reasonable limits. Thanks to SINE2020 a number of European participants may receive support for their travel expenses (to be managed by the school organisers).

Deadline for application is May 14, 2017.
