Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of Soft Matter Using Neutron Data

Spallation Neutron Source, Oak Ridge National Laboratory November 9-11, 2011

Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science are organizing a workshop on modeling and simulation using neutron data of materials such as complex fluids, polymers, and proteins at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR).   The goal of the workshop is to provide attendees with an opportunity to identify current status and plan for future development of opportunities of modeling and simulation of soft matter science, a science area where there is substantial Jülich and Oak Ridge activity.  Of particular benefit to all attendees will be the interactions between experimenters and those knowledgeable of modeling and simulation techniques to exchange ideas with the goal of collaborations in the writing of proposals.  These proposals will lead to the performance of experiments that are tailored to enable significant advances.

One of the goals of the ORNL neutron sciences program this year is to develop collaborations among neutron scattering experimenters and scientists involved with modeling and simulation.  Each session speaker is asked to identify mechanisms for collaboration as well as those key experiments (and related key personnel) that should be performed on instruments at the SNS and HFIR, including the Neutron Spin Echo instrument.  Active feedback will enable a summary of future actions to be discussed on the last day.

Included in the Workshop will be a summary that integrates current research capabilities along with the recommendations for future collaborations and research directions.  It will also serve as an important milestone when communicating with funding agencies and the public.

Contributed talks and posters are actively solicited with limited scholarship funding available for successful submitters. The workshop will be held at the Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, on Wednesday afternoon through Friday midday, November 9- 11, 2011.
