Summer School on Neutron Small-Angle Scattering
And Reflectometry from Submicron Structures

NIST Center for Neutron Research
National Institute of Standards and Technology
Gaithersburg, MD 20899

June 6, 10-12, 2004

The 2004, tenth annual, NIST <http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/>Center for Neutron 
Research (NCNR) neutron scattering summer school will be held in 
conjunction with the <http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/acns/>American Conference on 
Neutron Scattering (ACNS). The summer school will commence on Sunday, June 
6th, at the ACNS site on the University of Maryland campus in College Park, 
Maryland, with a series of introductory lectures covering the fundamentals 
of small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), neutron reflectometry (NR), and 
cold neutron spectroscopy. Following the ACNS meeting, the summer school 
will resume on Thursday, June 10th, at the NCNR in Gaithersburg, Maryland. 
This part of the summer school will run until Saturday afternoon, June 
12th, and will emphasize hands-on training on the SANS and NR instruments 
at the NCNR. The combination of introductory lectures, scientific sessions 
at the ACNS, and training in scattering techniques at the NCNR will provide 
participants with a unique opportunity to become familiar with neutron 
scattering methods and their application to current research topics.

The Summer School is sponsored by the NIST Center for Neutron Research and 
the National Science Foundation's Division of Materials 
Research.  Attendance is limited. Financial assistance for travel and 
subsistence expenses is available to graduate students, postdocs, and 
others who would otherwise be unable to attend, subject to approval by the 
organizers. Financial assistance is restricted to applicants from North 
American institutions.

A $30 registration fee, payable at the start of the summer school, covers 
the cost of refreshments each morning and afternoon, course materials and 
the school photo.
Persons applying for the NCNR Summer School MUST also register for the ACNS 
meeting. Applicants may request financial support to attend the ACNS 
meeting when filling out the ACNS registration form.

The application deadline is April 15, 2004.

Additional information and the online application form are available on the 
NCNR's <http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/summerschool/information/index.html>Summer 
School website, http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/summerschool/information/index.html.
