ICDD workshop

The ICDD Workshop will take place prior to EPDIC17 on 31 May 

This workshop will describe both new data collections and methods of analysis embodied in ICDD 
PDF®-4+ databases and MDI JADE™ software. 

The first half of the workshop will have invited speakers providing presentations on materials characterization techniques that utilize the PDF-4+ database.

The second half of the workshop will be hands-on activities, with attendees using the PDF-4+ database for data mining and phase identification analysis. In addition, qualitative and quantitative XRD analyses using MDI JADE software will be made available during the workshop for participants.


Participate at ICDD workshop
This is an open workshop, with no registration fee.

If you wish to attend, please register via MyEPDIC17. Specially negotiated prices for EPDCI17  in Hotel Ivan and Hotel Niko will be valid during the ICDD workshop as well. 


For the hands-on access, attendees should bring their laptop computer using Windows operating system (or MAC Windows emulator) with administrative privileges, USB port access, and wireless capability. The PDF-4+ database will have a 45-day license that attendees can continue to use after the workshop. The JADE software will be accessible during the workshop, and can also be accessed for demonstrations at the ICDD exhibitor’s location during the EPDIC17 meeting.
