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®Pro software. 

The workshop will include tutorial and hands-on activities.

The first half of the workshop will present the PDF databases, data entry information, datamining capabilities and Sieve+ for phase identification. 

The second half will be qualitative and quantitative XRD analyses using MDI JADE software. In addition, materials characterization using some of the JADE Toolkit features will be demonstrated.  


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.
