cordially invite you to:
MDANSE 2018 school
Molecular Dynamics and Lattice Dynamics to Analyse Neutron Scattering
Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain - Sept. 24th-28th, 2018.
Following the success of MDANSE 2012 and 2014 at ILL, France, and MDANSE
(https://www.isis.stfc.ac.uk/Pages/MDANSE-2016.aspx) at ISIS, UK, this
next MDANSE school in this series. This school also relates to previous
scattering instrument simulation McStas schools/workshops in 2006-2016
Scope : Simulation of Inelastic Neutron Scattering using McStas and
material dynamics models
MDANSE 2018 school intends to train neutron scientists to better design
instruments, but also to make better use of the allocated beam time. It
specialized scope (inelastic scattering, material modelling) and covers
existing or planned neutron scattering instruments. The school will not
the data analysis, but rather on all aspects of simulation, from
instruments, and present an integrated pipeline.
The school is focused on the calculation of materials dynamics, e.g.
structure factor S(q,w), using both DFT and classical MD codes. This
will then be forwarded to full virtual experiments of neutron scattering
spectrometers in order to produce realistic simulated data, such as
and quasi-elastic neutron scattering intensity. A set of representative
spectrometer descriptions will be proposed to attendees, together with
so-called scattering kernels which model the neutron-matter interaction.
The expected attendees will be either scientists with a strong
background and collaborating with experimental groups (in particular
scattering users) or experimentalists with some previous knowledge of
electronic-structure calculations and/or force-field based simulations.
will learn how to use existing modern tools to compute the measured
(including instrument effects) starting from an initial structure, down
neutron scattering intensity, helping to bridge the gap between
The school is designed for providing practical training, so the number
participants is limited to 25. In order to select candidates, we ask
to state briefly their scientific fields of interest, why they would
attend the school and previous experience with computer simulations.
A single fee of 200 Euro is requested. (This fee includes a full
teaching materials, smiles and sun).
Registration is now open and will be closed on 31st May. More details
to register will be found here
We look forward to seeing you in September!
