[Ifeffit] XAFS short course in BNL: Nov 1-3, 2017

Dear Anatoly.  Regarding yours of Fri, 28 Jul 2017 15:43:01 -0400:

The website doesn't work for non-BNL people.  It pops up a login/password window for the BNL domain.  I'm assuming that you want people from elsewhere to be able to take the course.

I don't know yet whether I'll be able to go.  It does sound interesting.  My knowledge of XAS analysis has remained pretty static.  Will there be anything that applies
to soft X-rays?  I'm moving to STXM, so will be dealing with soft X-rays.

> 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:https://www.bnl.gov/exafs2017/ <https://mail.bnl.gov/OWA/redir.aspx?C=Cs5LzjKsiYS2QXnknBXt0VXGF6SSe4a5KclqcKrisLz4D2W08NXUCA..&URL=https%3a%2f%2fwww.bnl.gov%2fexafs2017%2f>
> 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 instructors.
> The course is co-sponsored by BNL and Synchrotron Catalysis Consortium (SCC).
> Best regards,
> Anatoly*
