Welcome to ESS Data Management and Software Centre (DMSC) Summer School 2024!

The school will be held in Copenhagen from the 2nd to the 6th of September 2024, with on-site registration and welcome reception on the afternoon of the 1st. 

This summer school is being organised by the European Spallation Source. We invite applications for participation to learn about the role of your data, from proposal to publication.

The role of data in neutron scattering is changing, with greater importance being placed on data reduction and analysis, as well as FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) and open data. Therefore, neutron scattering scientists must be trained to understand fully the role that data has in their experiments and how to harness the tools that maximise the value of their data. This summer school will provide that training, covering the full ESS Data Pipeline. 

The ESS Data Pipeline

There will be lectures/workshops on subjects including: 

  • Using Python for scientific computing
  • Data management and the role of data in the beamtime proposal
  • Simulating neutron scattering experiments
  • Modern reduction and analysis of data
  • The importance of scientific metadata and reproducibility

There will also be a tour of the ESS facilities, as well as a poster session. Therefore, we ask that you include a poster abstract with your application. To ensure a low student-to-teacher ratio, the number of places is limited

Application closes: 15th July 25th July (Applications after 15th of July do not have sufficient time to apply for visa application, these need visa free entrance to Denmark / Sweden)

The call for abstracts is open
You can submit an abstract for reviewing.
Registration for this event is currently open.
