School and workshop — SPR-KKR hands-on course on magnetism and spectroscopy - calculations with spin polarized relativistic Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker (SPR-KKR) code
27 Apr 2020 - 30 Apr 2020 • Daresbury, United Kingdom
The hands-on course will focus on electronic calculations based on the KKR band structure methodology. This approach, based on multiple scattering theory, gives access to the Greens function of both ordered and disordered systems, as well as layered systems, surfaces and clusters in real space, allowing a direct connection to a wide variety of spectroscopies and magnetic properties. The Munich SPR-KKR code is a uniquely powerful software package implementing a wide variety of spectroscopies, transport and magnetic properties that are rather difficult to access using most electronic structure codes, such as ARPES calculations or the calculation of higher-order magnetic exchange interactions. The code will be introduced together with the associated graphical user interface, xband. With applications in magnetism and transport as well as calculations of a number of spectroscopies, the hands-on course will be of interest to both theoreticians and experimentalists working in different areas of materials science. Participants will be encouraged to submit posters and present them at the course.

Training Course on Vacuum Systems Design and Maintenance
02 Jun 2020 - 05 Jun 2020 • Institute of Physic, London, United Kingdom
Institute of Physics – IOP
Vacuum technology is a key for many research and industries. This IOP Vacuum Group training course is intended to provide a grounding in practical vacuum usage for people who use and have some experience in vacuum. It will be presented by experienced vacuum personnel and will cover the topics listed below, where possible personal experiences will be used to highlight how various technical challenges were overcome. This course will be beneficial for both graduates and vacuum technicians looking to develop their knowledge and technical skills.

Metric Geometry and Geometric Analysis
06 Jul 2020 - 17 Jul 2020 • University of Oxford, United Kingdom
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
The purpose of the summer school is to introduce graduate students to key mainstream directions in the recent development of geometry, which sprang from Riemannian Geometry in an attempt to use its methods in various contexts of non-smooth geometry. This concerns recent developments in metric generalizations of the theory of nonpositively curved spaces and discretizations of methods in geometry, geometric measure theory and global analysis. The metric geometry perspective gave rise to new results and problems in Riemannian Geometry as well.

57th Culham Plasma Physics Summer School
20 Jul 2020 - 31 Jul 2020 • Culham, United Kingdom
The Summer School is intended to give the students an introduction to the fundamentals of plasma physics together with an appreciation of how these are related to applications such as Magnetic Confinement Fusion, Laser Plasma and Inertial Confinement Fusion, Low Temperature Plasma and Astrophysical Plasmas. Specific topics in these fields are also treated in depth.

Astronomy School 2020 — GROWTH Astronomy School on Multi-wavelength Followup of Transients
16 Aug 2020 - 18 Aug 2020 • Liverpool, United Kingdom
The school is designed to offer a comprehensive training to graduate and advanced undergraduate students in observational techniques and tools for follow up of transient events at X-ray, UV, optical, infrared and radio wavelengths. The school sessions are organized by wavelength range and the format includes a short lecture that introduces the topic followed by an interactive workshop where students will be engaged in data analysis using real data from the LIGO, Keck Observatory in Hawaii, Palomar Observatory in California, the VLA in New Mexico and telescopes in the GROWTH global network of observatories.
