The 2017 APS/IIT SUmmer XAFS School will be held on July 9-13, 2017 in 

This XAFS summer school is a continuation of the week-long summer school 
offered previously at the Advanced Photon Source; the venue will again be 
at IIT in Chicago, but will run Sunday-Thursday. Course material will 
cover fundamental and practical aspects of X-ray Absorption Fine Structure 
Spectroscopy: basics, sample preparation, experiment, theory, data 

One day of hands-on experiments will be carried out by participants at 
several APS beamlines, followed by a guided data analysis laboratory using 
Athena/iFEFFIT and other programs. Computers will be available for those 
participants attending without their own laptops. The target audience is 
graduate students, postdocs, and experienced scientists who are new to 
XAFS and want to use it in their own research. Space is available for up 
to 40 students.

Instructors include: Dr. Steve Heald (ANL), Dr. Matt Newville (UChicago), 
Prof. Bruce Bunker (U. Notre Dame), Prof. Carlo Segre (IIT), Prof. Grant 
Bunker (IIT), and a number (positive, integer) of other experienced XAFS 
researchers also will participate.

The cost of the course is $500 USD, which covers most but not all meals 
via an IIT meal card. Students will be responsible for their own housing 
(available on and off IIT campus) and travel to/from their home 
institutions. IIT is readily accessible by car, cab, and CTA train from 
O’Hare and Midway airports. Free time will be available most evenings for 
participants to visit Chicago attractions such as Grant Park, the Loop, 
Millennium Park, Lake Michigan; music, architecture, art, theater; 
Chinatown, White Sox, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and 
Navy Pier, restaurants, and pubs.
