                      Announcement for 

  Symposium for "Canadian Participation at the Spallation Neutron Source"
             the 2003 CINS/ICDN Annual General Meeting

Friday, October 17, 10:00 AM - 5:15 PM
Saturday, October 18, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Council Chambers, Gilmour Hall, McMaster University

McMaster University is pleased to host a Symposium on the Frontiers of 
Neutron Scattering as a celebration for the launch of the $15M CFI 
International Access Fund Award "Canadian Participation at the Spallation 
Neutron Source".

The symposium will feature national and intenational experts in the 
application of neutron scattering to topical problems in materials science 
and the speakers will include:

Ian Anderson            SNS
Robert J. Birgeneau     University of Toronto
Bruce D. Gaulin         McMaster University
Tom Holden              Northern Stress Ltd.
Thom Mason              SNS
Stephen E. Nagler       Oak Ridge National Lab
Toby Perring            Rutherford Appleton Lab, UK
John Root               NRC, Chalk River
David Strangway         CFI
Xun Li Wang             SNS
Mary Anne White         Dalhousie University

The symposium will finish with lunch on Saturday, October 18, and be 
followed by the Canadian Institute for Neutron Scattering/ Institut 
canadien de la diffusion des neutrons (CINS/ICDN) Annual General Meeting.

This will be an exciting opportunity to find out about the transformative 
new opportunities for materials research associated with the Spallation 
Neutron Source, the $1.3B US next generation neutron source nearing 
completion at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, and the plans 
for Canadian involvement enabled by the "Canadian Participation at SNS" 
CFI award.



We are pleased to provide lunch on both the Friday and Saturday, as well
as a banquet on the Friday evening to ALL the participants at the symposium.

For planning purposes, please let us know if you will be attending the 
symposium and CINS/ICDN meeting, and if you'll be our guest for:

Lunch on Friday, October 17           (Yes / No)
Banquet on Friday evening, October 17 (Yes / No)
Lunch on Saturday, October 18         (Yes / No)

We can also offer limited financial support for participants attending 
from outside of southern Ontario.  A preference will be given to more 
junior scientists.  Please tell the conference secretary (below) that you 
wish to be considered for this support. 

PLEASE RESPOND BY FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10 to the symposium secretary, 
Randi DeYoung at deyoung at univmail.cis.mcmaster.ca

You can also contact Randi deYoung at 905-525-9140 x23531 for further

Please plan to take part in as much of the symposium and CINS/ICDN 
meetings as possible.  We will be discussing the nature and future of 
Canada's neutron scattering infrastructure, and it is very important to 
have YOUR input! 

Note also that Hamilton is well served by flights into both the Hamilton
airport (for Westjet flights) as well as Pearson Airport in Toronto (for
Air Canada, Westjet, and many other airlines).

Hope to see you in Hamilton, October 17 and 18!

Sincerely yours;

Bruce D. Gaulin
