[Neutron] canSAS-V October 2007: Registration Open
ajj at nist.gov
Mon Sep 10 17:47:52 CDT 2007
Registration is now open for the fifth workshop of the Collective
Action for Nomadic Small Angle
Scatterers (canSAS) which will be held from October 28-31 2007 at the
National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA.
canSAS-V is aimed at anyone with a particular interest in the use and
application of Small-Angle Scattering (SAS) techniques; e.g.,
Instrument/Beam line Scientists, Frequent SAS Users, SAS Beam line
Software Developers, Facility/Third-party Software Developers
(particularly those involved with data file formats, instrument/
sample environment control).
canSAS is a "self-help network" whose original stated aim was to
promote and simplify the sharing of Small-Angle Scattering (SAS) data
- be it light, X-ray or neutron - between Facilities and between
Users, but its interests now also encompass the discussion and
evaluation of emerging (principally software) technologies and the
recommendation of "best practice" (where feasible) in pursuit of this
Submissions for talks and posters are invited on three topic areas
that will be the focus of the meeting:
(1) A Common Bedouin Language : Data Interchange
(2) Virtual Nomadism: Distributed collaboration and data analysis
(3) Standardized Camels: Is the hump the same whichever ruler I use
to measure it?
More details about the meeting, contact details, abstract submission
and registration can be found at:
We look forward to seeing you in October!
on behalf of the canSAS-V committee.
