Dear subscribers:

Please share with your group members or others, who may be interested, the
following information about the short course on XAFS spectroscopy:

Title: *Data Analysis and Modeling of XANES and EXAFS Spectra. Applications
to Nanomaterials*
Dates: *November 1-3, 2017*
Location: *Brookhaven National Laboratory*

The course is open for applications at this web site:

The course will be useful for those scientists who are familiar with the
foundations of XAFS experiment, theory and data analysis, and seek training
in advanced methods. The course will include lectures, software
demonstrations, and data analysis sessions. The emphasis will be on
applications of XAFS to nanomaterials but we will welcome all participants
who are interested in modern analysis methods. The course instructors will
use examples from their research during presentations. The topics covered
will include:

-Theory of XANES,
-XANES data analysis,
-Structural refinement using XANES, with emphasis on the following methods:
        -Molecular dynamics,
        -Reverse Monte Carlo.
        -Machine Learning methods

During the data analysis practicum on November 3, participants will get an
opportunity to work with research projects with the help of the course

The course is co-sponsored by BNL and Synchrotron Catalysis Consortium
