BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:1.0 BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:SESAME Information Day DESCRIPTION;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE:1st SESAME Information Day in CyprusSESAME (SYNCHROTRON-LIGHT FOR EXPERIMENTAL SCIENCE AND APPLICATIONS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, http://www.sesame.org.jo) is inviting Cypriot Scientists to a one day user meeting. The event will also include a LinkSCEEM open day with tours of the HPC facilities. The meeting will cover the following topics:to introduce scientists in Cyprus to SESAME project and in particular the scientific programto show how a powerful scientific tool like the synchrotron can be used in various fields of science covering: material science, atomic and molecular spectroscopy, environmental science, archaeology, macro-molecular biology, developing new drugs, nano-technology and nuclear physics – studying various isotopesto present training opportunities available through SESAMEto discuss specifications, techniques and applications of SESAME Phase – I beamlines with particular emphasis on four day-one beamlines: Infrared Beamline (IR), Protein Crystallography Beamline (PX), X-ray Fluorescence/X-ray Absorption Fine Structure Beamline (XRF/XAFS) and Powder Diffraction Beamline (PD)ProgrammeA detailed programme can be found here.SESAME plans to invite the following speakers for this one-day activity in Cyprus: - Jan Gunneweg, Hebrew University, Israel – Synchrotron radiation in Archaeology,- Mohammed Yousef, USA – Macromolecular Crystallography,- M.
