SpinW and Horace Course

Dear Colleagues


We are pleased to announce that we will be running another joint Horace and SpinW workshop.  Horace is a widely used suite of Matlab programs for the visualisation and analysis of large datasets from time-of-flight neutron inelastic scattering spectrometers. SpinW is a Matlab library that can plot and numerically simulate magnetic structures and excitations of a given spin Hamiltonian using classical Monte Carlo simulation and linear spin wave theory.


The courses will cover all aspects of Horace (planning an experiment, data visualisation and corrections, simulations, fitting, and more); and of SpinW (introduction to magnetic structures and linear spin wave theory, handling complex magnetic structures, symmetry analysis, fitting inelastic neutron scattering data, etc.).


The workshop will be run at the ISIS neutron source, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Didcot, UK on Monday 21 – 25 January 2019 and is free to attend. For further information and registration please visit https://www.isis.stfc.ac.uk/Pages/Horace-SpinW-2019.aspx


Please note that registration closes at 09:00 GMT on Monday 10th December, with participants’ places confirmed shortly after.


We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!


With best regards,

The Horace and SpinW teams
