With the new Spallation Neutron Source coming on line, the recently
announced expansion of the neutron facilities at NIST, and reinvigorated
programs at other North American facilities, this is truly an exciting
time for neutron research in North America. Whether you are already a
neutron user, or would simply like to find out how neutrons can help
solve your problems in the materials and biological sciences, the
American Conference on Neutron Scattering (ACNS)
<http://www.lansce.lanl.gov/acns2008/index.html>  is the essential venue
to hear about the high quality and breadth of current neutron-related
research across North America.

>From fresh insights on macromolecules in motion, through shear-induced
phase transformations in soft condensed matter, to materials for
hydrogen storage, multiferroics, nanomagnetism and fundamental neutron
physics ... hear the latest research results. There will also be
opportunities to dream and speculate about what's next on the Q-E map --
the great unanswered scientific questions and novel instrument concepts.

More than 40 invited speakers have already signed on, and the three
recipients of the 2008 NSSA prizes will be speaking as well.

We know that there are a plethora of conferences and workshops that take
your valuable time. However, in an era when "cross-disciplinary"
research is touted as essential to innovation, the broad application of
neutrons makes ACNS <http://www.lansce.lanl.gov/acns2008/index.html>  a
natural forum for scientists and engineers to present their work to a
multidisciplinary audience. We believe that with your help, the program
of ACNS2008 <http://www.lansce.lanl.gov/acns2008/index.html>  can be the
best yet.

Please submit an abstract yourself
<http://mrsacns2008.abstractcentral.com/> , make your arrangements to
attend <http://www.mrs.org/s_mrs/sec_mtgreg.asp?CID=13558&DID=207552> ,
and share this information with colleagues who might be interested. For
