At the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the internationally known HERCULES Course , we will organize a three week HERCULES School in July 2015 (6-24 July 2015) in Hsinchu, Taiwan where the National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (NSRRC) is located. The NSRRC is a national laboratory which operates a 1.5-GeV synchrotron named Taiwan Light Source and is constructing another 3-GeV one called Taiwan Photon source.

This 2015 Asia-Pacific Edition of HERCULES in TAIWAN, “Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for Physics and Chemistry of Condensed Matter and Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics,” is a 3-week training course including a week of practicals and tutorials. It will be opened to PhD students, postdoctoral, young physicists, chemists and biologists.

The language of the course is English.


Week 1: Basic concepts and techniques :lectures common to all the multidisciplinary audience.
