Analysis of microstructure and residual stress
by diffraction methods  -
  2nd to 6th December, 2001 - Trento (Italy)


Accuracy in Powder Diffraction III  -
   22nd to 25th April, 2001 -
   NIST (National Institute of Standards and
    Technology) Gaithersburg, MD 20899, USA

This will be the third in a series of meetings concerning
Accuracy in Powder Diffraction which have been held at
NIST approximately every 10 years. These meetings offer
a unique perspective on powder diffraction in that the issues
under discussion are fundamental to accuracy and how it
affects the application of the technique(s) to materials
problems.  Advancements in instrumentation continue to
increase the breadth of applications which can be considered
with powder diffraction methods.  Concurrently, the advances
in computer hardware have allowed for the implementation
of algorithms and concepts developed decades ago, but whose
virtues could not be realized until recently.  The meeting is
structured to cover both instrument / technique specific
subjects as well as issues concerning materials characterization.

The meeting will consist of a single sequence of sessions
and all oral presentations will be invited.  An afternoon will
be dedicated to a poster session of contributed works
which will be followed by a round table discussion.  This
discussion will cover important topics which time constraints
prevented from being included in the oral sessions.
