School 2018

Universitat de les Illes Balears

October 21-26, 2018

The next Ampere Biological Solid-State NMR School will take place in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

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.

The Registration for the School will start on March 1, 2018, and close on September 1, 2018. In order to attend the school you need to be a member of the Groupement Ampere. If you are already a member, the course registration fee is 63 EUR. If you are not, the course registration fee is 80 EUR and includes the Ampere membership for 1 year (2019).

We plan to provide some student bursaries as contribution to the travel/ accommodation  expenses. More details will follow before March, 1. The bursaries will be assigned by the scientific committee.
