2015 Asia-Pacific Edition of HERCULES in Taiwan

HERCULES is the short form of higher European research course for users of large experimental systems. This school is a yearly event which has been established since 1991. It provides training for students, postdoctoral and scientists from European and non-European universities and laboratories, in the field of Synchrotron Radiation and Neutron for condensed matter studies.


At the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the internationally known HERCULES School, we will organize a three-week HERCULES School from July 6 to 24, 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, “Synchrotron Radiation and Neutron for Physics and Chemistry of Condensed Matter and Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics,” is a three-week training course including a week of practicals and tutorials. It will be open to PhD students, postdoctoral, young scientists working in the fields related to physics, chemistry, biology, and materials science. The language of the course is English.
