We inform that registrations are now open for the first on-line edition of the International School on Synchrotron Radiation “Gilberto Vlaic”: Fundamentals, Methods and Applications, that SILS traditionally organize in collaboration with ELETTRA Sincrotrone Trieste SpA.

The school will take place virtually in Trieste between September 13rd and September 17th.
The school will provide an overview of the production and characteristics of synchrotron light, its interaction with the matter and will illustrate the main experimental methods used at synchrotron facilities starting from basics. Dedicated lectures will illustrate the combined use of several experimental techniques to study specific topics.
Afternoon sessions will be dedicated to the data analysis on X-ray Absorption, Powder Diffraction and Core Level Photoemission Spectroscopy experiments.?The programme foresees also a virtual visit of the ELETTRA and FERMI facilities and will give the opportunity to follow an experiment on one beamline of ELETTRA.
The lectures will be at the level of Phd courses. The School will provide students with a certificate reporting details on the number of hours and the kind of activities performed.
Deadline for application is June 15th. Participants will be selected on the basis on their curriculum; priority will be given to PhD student and to young researcher, paying attention to gender balance. A fee of 100 € is foreseen.
IUCr support:
We applied for support from the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr). If granted, the registration fee for a number of students from developing countries will be reduced to 50 €.
More details are reported in the first announcement.?
