Program      (Click here for detailed schedule)
Purpose of this workshop is to explain and practise how Jana2006 uses restraints, constraints, rigid bodies and local symmetry. The methods will be applied to disordered and large structures calculated from single crystal data as well as for molecular structures from powder data. We shall also present advantages of commensurate refinement, which is often useful alternative for large structures. Correct meaning of goodness of fit will be explained, too. The workshop will contain simple examples for those without preliminary knowledge of Jana2006. Thus, this workshop can be also understood as a useful primer for people going to visit the International school on aperiodic structures in Bayreuth in April 2013.
(INT1) Simple 3d structures
(INT2) Simple 4d modulated structures
(DIS) Disordered structures
(RIG) Application of rigid body
(GEOM) How to keep geometry
(LOC) Application of local symmetry
(COMM) Commensurate refinement as an alternative for large structures
Schedule: Each day the workshop starts at 9:00 am and finishes at 18:00 pm
Lecturers: Vaclav Petricek, Michal Dusek
For this workshop a preliminary experience with Jana2006 is not needed.
Each participant should bring a laptop with operating system Windows2000/XP/Vista/Windows7, with Administration rights. Installation of all necessary software will be done at the beginning of the workshop. Wireless internet connection including Eduroam is available at the lecture room. Limited number of computers can be provided to people without laptop (please inform us before the workshop that this would be needed)
Workshop cookbook
Workshop cookbook cumulates examples from all Jana workshops. The latest version together with example files and installations files is available in jana page: (~ 50MB). THE LINK IS UPDATED AFTER THE WORKSHOP, NOT BEFORE!

The workshop is organized by Department of structure analysis at the Institute of Physics and Special interest group on aperiodic crystals at ECA. The date and program are created in collaboration with participants.
Transportation from the Prague airport "Letiste Ruzyne"
Institute of Physics has two buildings 15 km apart! Make sure you are travelling to proper building at Cukrovarnicka street 10, Prague 6.
