The school provides a comprehensive training in the fundamental concepts of neutron scattering.

School Objectives: Educate graduate students on the utilization of major neutron facilities, in neutron scattering techniques, instrumentation and data collection, analysis and interpretation. Build interactions between graduate students, their research centres and university groups, Lectures will include basic and simulation tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods. Expose participants to cutting-edge research.

Target Audience: Students attending universities majoring in physics, chemistry, materials science, or related fields.
