Distinct strength of quasielastic neutron spectroscopy is the ability to deliver direct information in both space and time 10-12 10-6 s, while other spectroscopic probes are either local such as hyperfine field methods or macroscopic in the spatial dimension such as light scattering. The high data rates and new instrumental capabilities of modern spectrometers open up new opportunities for systematic, in situ and kinematic investigations.

The first one took place in 1988 in Interlaken in the wake of the discovery of high superconductivity by the Nobel Prize winners Johannes Georg Bednorz and Karl Alexander Mller.The meeting has since then taken place in Palo Alto, Kanazawa, Grenoble, Beijing, Houston, Rio de Janeiro, Dresden, Tokyo, Washington and now will return to Switzerland in the summer of 2015.Superconductivity is the phenomenon of electrical current flow without any loss of energy due to resistance. This extremely useful phenomenon is nowadays routinely applied in medical applications of magnetic resonance imaging MRI, in large scale magnetic guiding systems such as CERN, the presently constructed nuclear fusion energy plant ITER, in high throughput electrical power cables, as well as the maglev train presently in construction by Japanese Railways.The field of superconductivity is heavily driven by experimental progress using the most advanced technology available. Consequently the participants of M2S are actively involved in materials science, experimental techniques, theoretical research andor applications of superconductivity.The experimental techniques involve materials processing, crystal growth and characterization, low temperature techniques, ultra high vacuum, various kinds of neutron-, electron-, optical-, X-ray, and scanning probe techniques.Superconductivity is also the subject of intense theoretical research, and has spurred novel ground breaking theoretical approaches to the mechanisms of superconductivity and more generally of emergent properties of strongly interacting electrons.Registration and abstract submission is open:http:www.m2s-2015.chregistration-and-abstract-submission.php.

The connection to strong correlation physics is also just beginning. The meeting plans to bring together active participants in these research areas to report their recent findings. The topics covered include new experimental results in topological insulators and topological superconductors, proximity and edge effects; the interplay between topology and strong correlation, in particular the possibility of new topological states which are not covered by the classification scheme of non-interacting fermions; and new materials and topological states, including Dirac and Weyl fermions.Furthermore, cold atom system is now recognized as an attractive platform to realize many of the topology based ideas mentioned above. We plan to bring the cold atom and condensed matter physics community together to investigate issues pertaining to topology and strong correlation. The topics include progress in different approaches of constructing synthetic gauge fields and spin-orbit couplings in cold atoms, and the properties of bosons and fermions in these topological environments.Application DeadlineApplications for this meeting must be submitted by May 31, 2015.

The experimental technique was pioneered in the late 1940s, by Drs. Clifford G. Shull and Bertram N. Brockhouse, for which they were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1994. Over the years, neutron scattering studies have made tremendous impact in many areas of physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, and materials engineering.The Gordon Research Conference GRC on Neutron Scattering is a new conference series featuring world-leading neutron scattering scientists who will share and discuss their latest discoveries in the GRC interactive style. The inaugural conference will focus on the effect of disorder and disordered materials. Disorder is ubiquitous and often strongly influences the properties of a material. For example, small changes in oxygen stoichiometry in pyrochlore materials and other frustrated magnets, can lead to a very different magnetic response. Meanwhile, microalloying is known to dramatically improve the glass forming ability of bulk metallic glasses. The underling physical mechanisms leading to these novel phenomena are subjects of intense debate. Disordered materials encompass glass, liquids, spin glass, quantum liquids, relaxor ferroelectrics, polymers, and bio systems.Neutron scattering has played an important role in elucidating the structure and dynamics of disordered materials, and the effect of disorder on properties. However, neutron applications to disorder are very demanding technically, as the scattering tends to be distributed in momentum and energy space, The conference is interdisciplinary in nature, bringing together neutron scattering scientists and theorists across the traditional fields of condensed matter physics, materials science, and the soft matter. In spite of the diversity in the materials of interest, the mechanisms underlying their intriguing physical properties could be the same or similar, and the different communities will benefit from each other through exchange of ideas and approaches.Innovative instrumentation is the backbone of scientific discoveries. One of the nine sessions will be therefore devoted to discussions of the performance of innovative instruments. In addition, there will be a session featuring industrial applications, which connects the neutron scattering community to the public. A diverse and vibrant user community is vital for the success of the neutron scattering facilities. We thus particularly encourage the participation of young scientists, to learn and profit from interactions with leading scientists in neutron scattering in the casual environment provided by the conference.Application DeadlineApplications for this meeting must be submitted by May 24, 2015.

Topics may include the following: - Choppers and chopper systems - Shielding - Beam slits, jaws and conditioning methods - Collimation and collimators - Motion systems and mechanics - Vacuum vessel design, analysis and approval - Detector structures and mechanics - Project management of instrument builds http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=453 http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=453 2013 North American Particle Accelerator Conference NA-PAC13 29.09.2013 - 04. 10.2013 - September 29-October 4, 2013Pasadena Conference CenterPasadena, CA http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=474 http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=474 NINMACH 2013 - Conference on Neutron Imaging and Neutron Methods in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Research 09.09.2013 - 12. 09.2013 - In the recent years, modern scientific methods have led to a wealth of information in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Research concerning the composition of artefacts both on a molecular level and on the mechanical built of objects than cannot be dismantled without destroying them. X-ray methods from radiography to fluorescence have become widespread, but the potential of neutron methods has barely been tapped. Neutrons easily penetrate thick layers of metals, even lead, while revealing organic material like wood, leather or bones in sealed metal or stone containers. Two- and three-dimensional imaging provides visual information, while neutron activation analysis delivers elemental composition information, and neutron scattering reveals alloys and textures.With modern detectors, Neutron Imaging can even be performed at low-power research reactors; the application for cultural heritage research gives rise to new uses to elder small research reactors throughout the world, which is explicitly supported by IAEA.NINMACH addresses archaeologists and conservators from museums and universities and aims to illustrate the potential of neutron methods in cultural heritage research. Talks and posters will be presented by physicists and archaeologists who have already employed neutron methods successfully; attendance is explicitly recommended for scientists who are completely new to neutron methods and want to learn about the possibilities at neutron sources throughout the world. http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=448 http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=448 15th International Conference on Solid Surfaces 09.09.2013 - 13. 09.2013 - This event will provide a unique worldwide opportunity to professionals in the academic and industrial research communities to share their latest scientific findings and technological developments in the fields of materials, coatings, nanosciences and surfaces.

The attention of the Collaboration is on the subjects of accelerator development, source target and moderator development, and neutron scattering instrumentation techniques.Since the last meeting in Dongguan, China, in 2007 significant progress was made at various neutron science facilities, in particular at SNS, Oak Ridge, J-PARC, Tokai and the ISIS Second Target Station has been brought online. Likewise, the ESS site decision has been taken. It is the tradition of ICANS to cooperate and support each other, and by continuing this series we hope to advance neutron science and to further strengthen cooperation between and among the participating laboratories.Besides the traditionally represented high-power and large-scale facilities, ICANS XIX in particular would like to encourage smaller sources to submit contributions on their development and perspectives. As well, contributions from developing countries are very welcome. http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=452 http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=452 Single-Crystal Diffraction with Polarised Neutrons Flipper2010 27.01.2010 - 29. 01.2010 - The enhanced contrast between the magnetic and nuclear signals in polarised neutron diffraction was first demonstrated in the milestone experiment by Shull, Nathans and colleagues in the late 1950s. The following decades saw steady development of the flipping-ratio technique by small groups of devoted experts who were interested primarily in the experimental determination of magnetic form factors and mapping out of spin density in metals and intermetallics. More recently improvements in instrumentation and analysis techniques have seen application of polarised-neutron diffraction to an increasingly wider range of scientific questions from solution of difficult antiferromagnetic structures, through exploration of spin density in smart materials, such as giant-magnetoresistant oxides and multiferroics, to magnetism in molecules. Chemists, materials scientists and biologists have now joined with physicists to discover the unique capabilities of polarised-neutron diffraction. http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=143 http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=143 9th World Conference on Neutron Radiography 03.10.2009 - 08. 10.2009 - The aim of the series of WCNR is to bring researchers, students and fellows together to share information, build networks and to strengthen relationships between international partners in neutron radiography related research.

It is intended to showcaserecent scientific results in neutron science in a wide range of fields,including soft condensed matter and liquids, biology, magnetism,engineering materials, chemical spectroscopy, crystal structure, andelementary excitations. This will be accomplished through a combination of invited and contributed talks as well as poster sessions. Equally important, the conference is intended to fulfill many of the objectives of a facility users meeting but on a national scale. Hence, the conference will provide an opportunity for the major neutron centers in North America to interact with neutron users and will provide a forum for users to raise issues that relate to using these facilities. This years conference will include an update on the United States next-generation neutron source project, the Spallation Neutron Source SNS, a multilaboratory partnership, and will allow for feedback from the neutron-scattering community. http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=349 http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=349 ESS European Conference 16.05.2002 - 17. 05.2002 - The ESS European Conference will be held in Bonn, Germany, May 16-17, 2002 at the Bundeshaus the former House of Parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Since then it has been recognized that these displacements were a manifestation of the stripes that occur in correlated metal oxides. It is also becoming clear, however, that such behavior is far from unique. The spontaneous development of nanoscale organization coupled to functionality is apparently common to many types and classes of materials, especially complex ones that exhibit correlated electron and atom behaviors that are manifested as phase instabilities and unusual chemical reactivity. These unusual characteristics may therefore originate in the interactions between the resulting differently ordered domains and the attributes of the domain walls instead of bulk characteristics that assume a periodic lattice. The special properties that ensue have generated much of the current interest in nanoscience. Since nanoscale structure has always been recognized as intrinsic to soft matter and biomolecules, many of the ideas and methods already used in, e.g., biological physics, could be extended to condensed matter, and vice versa. http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=390 http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=390 International Conference on Neutron Scattering ICNS 2001 09.09.2001 - 13. 09.2001 - The conference intends to bring together scientists using neutrons and instrumentation specialists.

These meetings offer a unique perspective on powder diffraction in that the issues under discussion are fundamental to accuracy and how it affects the application of the techniques to materials problems. Advancements in instrumentation continue toincrease the breadth of applications which can be considered with powder diffraction methods. Concurrently, the advances in computer hardware have allowed for the implementation of algorithms and concepts developed decades ago, but whose virtues could not be realized until recently. The meeting is structured to cover both instrument technique specific subjects as well as issues concerning materials characterization. http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=408 http://neutronsources.org/index.php?article_id=158&eventid=408 International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Source ICANS-XV 06.11.2000 - 09. 11.2000 - TARGETS AND MODERATORS, NEUTRON SCATTERING INSTRUMENTS and ACCELERATORS will be the topics of this meeting.
