EasySpin Academy (online), Oct 13-15, 2020








Dear EPR community,

We are excited to announce EasySpin Academy 2020, fully online this time. It is a workshop for EasySpin, a MATLAB-based software toolbox for simulating and fitting Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectra - see http://easyspin.org.

The workshop runs from Tuesday October Oct 13 to Thursday Oct 15. Sessions will be held from 7:30am–11:45am PT (10:30am–2:45pm ET, 16:30-20:45 CET) every day.

Each half day has a series of units, and each unit will start with an introduction to a specific topic and will then be followed by hands-on examples. At the end of every day there will be an online Happy Hour.

Instructors include Stefan Stoll (creator of EasySpin), Stephan Pribitzer (active developer), and others.

The workshop is open to everyone. Some experience with EPR spectroscopy is required, but no prior experience with either MATLAB or EasySpin are expected. We will be able to accommodate both beginners and users with EasySpin experience. The workshop starts with the basics of simulating and fitting EPR spectra, and then progressed to more advanced topics such as pulse shaping.

This workshop is a unique opportunity to learn directly from the core developers of EasySpin, to interact with other EPR researchers, to discuss your EPR simulation projects and needs with EasySpin developers, and to provide feedback about desired features for future releases of EasySpin.

For the workshop, you will require a computer with MATLAB and Zoom pre-installed. If you do not have access to a licensed copy of MATLAB, you can download a 30-day trial from http://mathworks.com. Zoom is free to use and can be downloaded from https://zoom.us.

The workshop is free of charge.

To register, please visit http://easyspin.org/academy. After registration, you will receive an email with details about the schedule. The registration deadline is October 1st.

We intend to accommodate everyone that signs up; however, we reserve ourselves the right to cap the number of participants if necessary.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at academy@easyspin.org.

Best regards
The EasySpin Academy team
