Hello SharedEPR participants,

Here is an announcement from the European Federation of EPR groups (EFEPR):

EFEPR is organizing a summer school on Advanced EPR Spectroscopy in Brno in the Czech Republic, 18-25 November 2019. The website is here: http://eprschool.ceitec.cz

The school brings together about 100 graduate students / postdocs and more than a dozen outstanding EPR instructors – see the program here: http://eprschool.ceitec.cz/programme/. This is the 8th time this school is held, and it has been very successful in the past.

Consider going if you are a student; consider sending students if you are a PI. The school is very affordable: The total cost for this 8-day event is 420 EUR, or about 470 USD. This includes all lodging and food.

[NMR] Registration Open for Solid-State NMR School, Palma de Mallorca October 21-26, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

there are only a few places left at the biological solid-state NMR school this year in Palma. Please apply soon if you would like to attend the school.

Best regards,

Matthias Ernst

——————————————————————————-

Dear Colleagues,

Every second year, the subdivision for biological solid-state NMR of the Groupement AMPERE (https://www.ampere-society.org) organizes an advanced school on biological solid-state NMR. The 7th edition of the school will take place at the Universitat de les Illes Balears, Palma de Mallorca, Spain from October 21-26, 2018. Palma de Mallorca is well connected to most airports in Europe with cheap flights and budget accommodation outside the main tourist season.

The School is aimed at advanced students who have a good knowledge of the basics of solid-state NMR. The School has the purpose of teaching the students a broad range of topics required to understand the modern solid-state NMR experiments which are used in biological applications: Hamiltonians in NMR, isotropic and anisotropic interactions, tensor description of NMR, spherical tensors and tensor rotations, time-dependent Hamiltonians, average Hamiltonian and Floquet theory, principles of recoupling and decoupling under MAS, spin-dynamic simulations using SIMPSON, basic principles and applications of MAS DNP, EPR and paramagnetic NMR, characterization of dynamic processes, protocols for the assignment of protein spectra and protein structure determination, the basics of solid-state NMR instrumentation as well as sample preparation and isotope-labelling techniques.

Registration for the advanced school on biological solid-state NMR is now open at https://biosolidnmr-school.org/school-2018/registration/ Please register as soon as possible if you are interested in attending the school. Places are limited.

There are also student stipends available to help with travel and accommodation due to generous contributions by EBSA and Groupement AMPERE and our sponsors. Details for the application process can be found on the registration web page.

Best regards,

Anja Böckmann, Beat Meier, Hartmut Oschkinat, and Matthias Ernst

Summer School on Nuclear Spin Hyperpolarisation Techniques – Final Call

From the Ampere Magnetic Resonance List

Dear Colleagues,

This is the final announcement for the next Summer School on Nuclear Spin Hyperpolarisation Techniques, organised within the EU-COST Framework (Action TD-1103), which is still open for registration until April 30th.

We do have a very limited number of spaces left for young researchers in the early stages of their carreer (PhDs, Postdocs) working in the fields of NMR, EPR, or MRI and seeking to embark deeper into the field of magnetic resonance and hyperpolarization in detail.

If interested, please register through the website: https://www.ocs.soton.ac.uk/index.php/cost/cost2015UK/index

The school will be held in an hotel within the beautiful Marwell Zoo and Wildlife Park nearby Southampton, UK. Social events include a Zoo Safari and a BBQ at the Zoo.

The main purpose of the school is to train the young generation of scientists (PhD’s and PostDocs) working in the field of magnetic resonance in novel methodologies for nuclear spin hyperpolarisation. For this purpose the schoolwill discuss several hyperpolarisation techniques:

* Solid-State DNP

* dissolution-DNP

* Overhauser-DNP

* PHIP/SABRE (ParaHydrogen Induced Polarisation)

* CIDNP (Chemically induced DNP)

* QRIP (Quantum Rotor Induced Polarisation)

at 4 different levels: Theory, Simulations, Instrumentation and Applications.

The school is coordinated by Giuseppe Pileio (University of Southampton, UK) and Björn Corzilius (Goethe University Frankfurt, DE);

It boasts a rich list of top class teachers and scientists whose researches have contributed to estabilish the field of nuclear spin hyperpolarisation:

* Shimon Vega (Weizmann Institite, IL)

* Bob Griffin (MIT, Cambridge, US)

* Kevin Brindle (University of Cambridge, UK)

* Walter Kockenberger (University of Nottingham, UK)

* Ilya Kuprov (University of Southampton, UK)

* Jan-Henrik Arderkjaeren-Larsen (DTU Copenhagen, DK)

* Sami Jannin (EPFL, CH)

* Marina Bennati (MPI, Göttingen, DE)

* Marco Tessari (IMM, Nijmegen, NL)

N.B.: The school is open to PhD’s, PostDocs and early career scientists but we can allow only a total number of 30 participants. Places will be assigned on a first come first served base so please do not wait the last minute to register! People from countries enrolled in the COST Action are entitled to a fixed reimbursement of 500€.

Students grants are provided by EU-COST Action TD-1103. The Zoo Safari and the BBQ have been generously offered by Bruker. Oxford Instruments and Cortecnet have generously offered drinks for all dinners.

Looking forward to seeing you at the School,

Giuseppe Pileio and Björn Corzilius
