The 54th Annual Denver X-ray Conference will be held 1-5 August in Colorado Springs, CO, at the Sheraton Colorado Springs.

Attendees to the World's largest X-ray conference will have access to sessions on the latest advancements in XRD and XRF. Workshops are run by experts who provide TRAINING and EDUCATION on many PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS of X-ray fluorescence and X-ray diffraction techniques for the study of materials. Designed to help attendees (with little or many years of experience), our workshops will solve some of their most difficult problems. As an added benefit, these experts will be available to answer questions and offer suggestions.

Jerome B. Cohen Student Award
This award, instituted in the memory of Professor Jerome B. Cohen, one of the leaders in the field of X-ray analysis and in the training of students in this art, is intended to recognize the outstanding achievements of student research in this field. All students, graduate or undergraduate, who are working in any aspect of X-ray analysis, can submit their work. The research must be original, of high quality and must be primarily the work of the student. The papers submitted for this competition must be received in electronic form by 1 July 2005 in final publication form. The winner will be selected by a committee of researchers in the field, announced at the Plenary Session of the conference and listed in the proceedings.
