Dear Colleagues,

Two half-day sessions on Ultra Small-Angle Scattering (X-rays and neutrons) will take place at the forthcoming Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association, scheduled for 17 to 22 July 2004, in Chicago.  To advance the use and the range of applications of USAS, Pete Jemian, of the ACA Small-Angle Scattering Special Interest Group, is arranging the sessions.  These will occur on the mornings of Wednesday, 21 (11.01: Science emphasis), and Thursday, 22 July (11.02: Techniques emphasis, followed by a workshop of the International Consortium on Ultra-Small-Angle Scattering, ICONUSAS).  We call your attention to the ACA Call for Papers, and to the ACA website, <http://www.hwi.buffalo.edu/aca/>.  We now solicit contributions of oral presentations or posters.  

For these purposes, we loosely define Ultra-Small-Angle Scattering as that accessing Q-values less than 10-3 Å-1, mostly, we expect, but not exclusively by Bonse-Hart techniques.

The purpose of this second ICONUSAS workshop, after the first held at Oak Ridge last summer (http://www.sns.gov/iconusas_workshop/iconusas_2003.htm), is to facilitate exchange of technical information, to identify areas for collaborative efforts, and to reduce duplication of efforts in this new field, especially in its Time-of-Flight implementation.  At that time, we hope to acclaim new leadership of the Consortium.

We remind you of the following deadlines:
Abstract Submission             1 March 2004
Advance Registration    1 June 2004
Travel Grant Applications       1 March 2004
Hotel Reservations              15 June 2004

Please submit your proposals to the ACA according to the instruction in the Call for Papers or the instructions on the website, <http://www.uic.edu/orgs/aca2004/finalcall.pdf>.

Also, please forward this message to your colleagues who may be interested.
