ANZAAS – Australian Synchrotron Inaugural Winter School
In July 2009, 46 of Australia’s and New Zealand’s brightest tertiary science students gathered at the Australian Synchrotron for the facility’s inaugural winter school.
The four-day program aimed to give young researchers – Honours, Masters and early PhD students – an understanding of synchrotron techniques and operation for research purposes. Participants attended lectures, toured the facility and performed beamline experiments that complemented their lectures.
Participation was open to all universities in Australia and New Zealand on the basis of one nominated student per institution. All accommodation, travel and catering expenses were paid for by the Australian Synchrotron.
