SNP School 2020 — The International School for Strangeness Nuclear Physics 2020
02 Dec 2020 - 05 Dec 2020 • J-PARC, Tokai, Japan
J-PARC, RCNP-Osaka, ELPH-Tohoku, KEK-IINAS, ASRC JAEA, ANPhA, RIKEN Nishina Center and GP-PU of Tohoku Univ.
The school will have several lectures and topical talks on strangeness nuclear physics as well as other related and wider subjects from hadron to cold atom physics. We believe that such wider discussions are useful for young physicists and also to researches conducted at accelerator facilities for hadron beams such as J-PARC (Japan), GSI and FAIR (Germany), RCNP (Japan) and for electron beams as CEBAF at Jefferson Lab (USA), MAMI-C at Mainz University (Germany) and ELPH at Tohoku University (Japan) etc. Lectures by leading physicists will overview related subjects both from experiment and theory, and topical talks on recent progress and future prospects of the fields will be also given.

51st IFF Spring School — IFF spring school 2021: Quantum Technology
01 Mar 2021 - 12 Mar 2021 • Jülich, Germany
Based on quantum coherence, data can be protected in a completely secure way that makes eavesdropping impossible. Given the explosive growth of cybercrime and espionage, this is a highly strategic capability. Quantum technologies will also give rise to simulation techniques well beyond current capabilities for material and chemical synthesis, and to clocks and sensors with unprecedented sensitivity and accuracy, with potential impact for navigation, the synchronisation of future smart networks and medical diagnostics.

25th IUCr congress satellite — IUCr2021 Computing School
09 Aug 2021 - 14 Aug 2021 • Nové Hrady, Czech Republic
The Computing School will cover aspects that are relevant to all fields of crystallographic computing. As the main topic we will focus on the determination and the use of eigenvectors and eigenvalues and their applications in the different fields of crystallography. Applications range from the well known principal component analysis and other statistical and machine learning techniques to modelling using Markov processes, or optimization of functions. Fields such as image processing, information theory, and crystallography make use of these in many of its most fundamental methods. It impacts directly macromolecular crystallography in both phasing and refinement aspects. In small molecule crystallography and materials science research, it allows the understanding of very fundamental physical properties of matter. In this school, our aim is to learn and teach about this general topic from the computing aspect of the fundamentals, but also the computing tools and the data.

Electron dynamics governs a wide range of important effects in nanoscience. Nanoclusters, as important testbed systems for exploring and developing quantum size effects, novel materials, and reaction pathways, exhibit a range of phenomena which are highly sensitive to electron mobility, response, transfer, emission and attachment, direct and exchange interactions, correlations, etc. The aim of the present workshop is to bring together researchers in adjacent fields in order to examine recent and future developments and to enhance the connection between different branches of research. To keep the discussion focused, it will concentrate on free clusters and related systems.
