If you wish to put your name down as an attendee for the workshop, please fill in the EPDIC 2004 registration form and tick that you want to attend the workshop.

The conference registration will be obtainable via the EPDIC 9, 2nd to 5th of September 2004, Prague, Czech Republic Home Page

Size/Strain 4 is being help just prior to the software workshop and the program is available on the web.

The EPDIC 9 - Prague, Czech Republic 2004 Size/Strain and Quantitative Phase Analysis Software Workshop homepage is at http://lachlan.bluehaze.com.au/epdic-2004/

With the main theme of showing what is practical and possible with the latest powder diffraction software; and thanks to resources provided by the EPDIC (European Powder Diffraction Conference) conference organisers, there will be a free software workshop as part of the EPDIC-9 Prague, Czech Republic conference registration. This will be located in the Faculty of Civil Engineering, at the Czech Technical University, Prague (Map). A variety of speakers will show participants some of the advanced features in available crystallographic software.

For the presenters, 2 Windows PCs with MS-Powerpoint, 2 data projectors (for disaster redundancy) as well as laser pointers and microphones will be provided. Windows friendly powder diffraction software can be installed by the organisers on behalf of presenters the day before if they wish to give live software demonstrations.

The main aim is to have 20 minute live sessions that show 1 to 2 problems on using the power tools in the various powder diffraction software packages in handling tricky problems that might not appreciated.

When speakers and software to be shown are finalized, it is requested that participants will read up on the software prior to the workshop. Weblinks will be provided as talks are confirmed (CD-ROMs can be sent with most of the software and information to those isolated from the internet). Thus presenters can go straight into their software demonstrations with very minimal introduction.

A free light breakfast from 8am to 9am ; morning tea/coffee, a light lunch and afternoon tea/coffee is provided as part of the workshop.

Registration for both Size-Strain workshop and EPDIC IX will be located in the main conference building, Faculty of Civil Engineering, (Map of Czech Technical University) (Photo of Building) Czech Technical University. Registration for Size-Strain will be opened on Tuesday, August 31 from 11.00 to 19.00. Please, note that the beginning of the workshop has been shifted to 15.30.
