DN2020 — MLZ User Meeting 2020 and German Neutron Scattering Conference 2020
08 Dec 2020 - 10 Dec 2020 • Garching, Germany
This year, the MLZ User Meeting will take place December 08th to 09th and is directly linked to the German Neutron Scattering Conference DN2020 on December 09th and 10th which is hosted at Munich for the second time after 2008. A common poster session is going to link both meetings and will give the opportunity for exchange between the participants of both events.

DN2020 — German Neutron Scattering Conference
09 Dec 2020 - 10 Dec 2020 • Munich, Germany
German Committee Research with Neutrons (KFN)
The German Neutron Scattering Conference DN2020 will be a forum for users of neutron sources and will offer the possibility to get updated on modern neutron methods and to discuss new results and developments. Invited speakers are going to give their view on the role of neutron science today and in the future. Neutron science plays an important role in modern research. New developments, not only in instrumentation, but also in digitalization, enable new types of experiments in all fields of research from particle physics over materials science to life sciences and heritage science, just to name a few.

CHRNS School on Methods and Applications of Small Angle Neutron Scattering and Neutron Reflectivity
14 Feb 2021 - 19 Feb 2021 • virtual, United States
NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR)
This school provides participants the opportunity to learn about small angle neutron scattering (SANS), and neutron reflectometry (NR) from scientists at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR). These powerful experimental techniques are used by researchers in a variety of scientific disciplines to probe the microstructure of materials at length scales ranging from 1nm to 20 microns.

HERCULES 2021 - European School
22 Feb 2021 - 26 Mar 2021 • Grenoble , France
This one month course, coordinated by the Université Grenoble Alpes, is designed to provide training for students, postdoctoral and senior scientists from European and non-European universities and laboratories, in the field of Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for condensed matter studies (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Geosciences, Industrial applications). It includes lectures, practicals and tutorials, visits of Large Facilities and a poster session (each participant puts up a poster about her/his thesis or research topic for a day).

2021 Annual MLZ Conference: Neutrons for Life Sciences
08 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 2021 • Lenggries, Germany
Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Zentrum (MLZ)
Life Sciences is a rapidly expanding field in the use of neutrons. The number of users at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Zentrum (MLZ) performing experiments related to life sciences is constantly growing. Be it contrast variation for matching out protein, DNA or lipids or the hunt for catalytical important hydrogen atoms, neutrons play an important role in determining structures of biologically relevant molecules or membranes. Neutron tomography on living plants or tissue uses the huge difference in incoherent scattering of hydrogen as compared to deuterium. Using incoherent and coherent inelastic neutron scattering, investigation of equilibrium dynamics of biological systems is possible on the picosecond and nanosecond time scale. With future neutron sources, time resolved investigations will become more and more important. Dedicated sample environment and additional in situ measurement techniques all optimized for small sample volumes will be needed in the future.

This is why the MLZ Conference 2021, initially planned for 2020, intends to bring together experts in the field of life sciences regardless whether they have used neutron scattering techniques or not. The conference will try to cover all relevant fields of life sciences and will discuss on how to improve neutron instrumentation, access to neutron beam time, sample environments and support labs for future life sciences users.

SXNS16 — 16th International Conference on Surface X-ray and Neutron Scattering
14 Jun 2021 - 18 Jun 2021 • Lund, Sweden
The conference is co-organized by the European Spallation Source and MAX IV Laboratory and supported by the Lund Institute of Advanced Neutron and X-ray Science (LINXS).
The conference will emphasize novel techniques for surface x-ray and neutron scattering including instrumentation and source development. Topics will include in-situ and in-operando surface studies, nanostructured surfaces and interfaces, surface and interfaces in soft matter, biological interfaces, emergent interfacial materials, and dynamics of surfaces, interfaces and nanostructures.

15th European Summer School on Scattering Methods Aplied to Soft Condensed Matter,
15 Jun 2021 - 23 Jun 2021 • Bombannes, France
The Bombannes summer school is devoted to the practical «state-of-art» approach to scattering methods, using neutrons, as well as X-ray and light sources - today’s key techniques to study structure and dynamics in systems containing colloids, polymers, surfactants and biological macromolecules. Since 1990 the Bombannes school series introduces, on a fundamental level, the current methodology of static and dynamic scattering techniques and their application to soft matter systems. It provides with a period of 2 years advanced training for young researchers with a working place in European laboratories at post-graduate and post-doctoral level.
