JACA school - University of Zaragoza

Advanced Seminar on "Perspectives for Neutron Science in Novel & Extreme conditions"

Next one in 2014

Zaragoza, Spain

patio JACA school

This seminar is open to the wider scientific community and aims to identify the scientific drivers requiring novel and extreme conditions, as well as determine how neutron scattering techniques can contribute to this area of research. The seminar will bring together scientists, engineers and instrument specialists and aims to promote discussion and the exchange of ideas between these three groups. The organisers hope that this exchange will foster ideas for novel and extreme sample environment equipment and instruments, so that new scientific areas can benefit from neutron scattering techniques.

During the seminar, world-class experts will be invited to give tutorials on the following topics: high pressure, high magnetic and electric fields, soft matter equipment, low temperature and high temperature.

These tutorials will be followed by discussions on the technical aspects and future possibilities of the field being discussed. Current capabilities and limitations, but also the type of science that could be investigated provided that certain developments be made, will be addressed.

Registration to participate in the seminar is open until the 15th of April 2012. The event registration fee covers participation, a welcome reception, coffee breaks, lunch meals and a gala dinner.
