A Workshop on Symmetry and Superspace Approach to Modulated Crystal Structures will be held Wednesday, 1:00 p.m. to Thursday, 5:00 p.m., October 23-24, 2019, at the Shull Wollan Center at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The workshop will cover concepts and applications of superspace symmetry to study complex and modulated crystal structures using single crystal neutron diffraction. Topical lectures will showcase examples and workflows. Hands-on tutorials on JANA2006 and ISODISTORT programs will be provided for participants interested in a holistic symmetry-based approach to determine and describe single crystal neutron structures by considering changes associated with occupational, charge, and/or magnetic ordering. Participants are encouraged to bring a poster highlighting their science for the poster session.

Although registration is free, you must register to attend.
Registration will end on August 20, 2019. Acceptance to the workshop is based on information provided when registering. Applicants will be notified by the end of August, if they are accepted. Those accepted are expected to arrange for their own travel and accommodations.
The conference venue will be the Shull Wollan Center, which is next to the Spallation Neutron Source at ORNL and just a short walk from the Guest House.
