The scholarship deadline for this workshop has been extended to close of
business on April 28, 2004.  To apply for a scholarship, the student or
faculty member needs to send an email to Maria Fawver at mfawver at utk.edu
describing the reason for attending the workshop, their field of
research, detailed expenses for which they would require reimbursement,
and if they are receiving a scholarship to attend the American
Conference on Neutron Scattering.  For graduate student applications,
the name of their faculty advisor should be included.


The deadline for hotel registration at greatly reduced rates is May 1,
2004.  If you have any questions, please contact me at the address or

Neutrons and Energy for the Future

Washington, D.C., June 4-5, 2004


Significant challenges are ahead to identify reliable and economic
sources of energy in the United States and throughout the world that can
be produced in the needed quantity without increasing pollution. It is
expected that basic research will make an important contribution by
providing understanding that will both expand the available options in
technological approaches and identify new concepts. Neutrons offer
unique opportunities to achieve the needed understanding of materials
structures and properties. Broadening knowledge among researchers and
policy makers of these opportunities is important and needs to be
timely. Several recent reports have identified the specific directions
for research on "clean energy." This workshop will use the targeted
areas and focus on the particularly high-payoff research opportunities
for using neutrons as tools.

This workshop is organized by the University of Tennessee (UT)/Oak Ridge
National Laboratory (ORNL) Joint Institute for Neutron Sciences (JINS)
and NMI3, also known as the Neutron Scattering and Muon Spectroscopy
Integrated Infrastructure Initiatives. NMI3 is a European Union
Framework 6 Program and has absorbed as one of its components the
European Union's Neutron Roundtable.  Workshop sponsors include National
Science Foundation, Chemistry Division; Oak Ridge Associated
Universities (ORAU); Oak Ridge National Laboratory/Spallation Neutron
Source; and the University of Tennessee.    

This workshop is a satellite event of the 2nd American Conference on
Neutron Scattering.  For additional workshop information, including
registration, scholarship, location, lodging, and draft program, please
