Dear colleagues,

The abstract deadline of the next International Conference on Polarised Neutrons for Condensed Matter Investigation (PNCMI) has been extended to 30 June. The conference will be held on September 15-19, 2014 in Sydney, Australia (http://www.ansto.gov.au/Events/PNCMI2014). To submit an abstract, please use the template downloaded from our web site (http://www.ansto.gov.au/Events/PNCMI2014/Abstracts/index.htm) and email it to PNCMI2014 at ansto.gov.au<mailto:PNCMI2014 at ansto.gov.au>

The conference is organised by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO). At ANSTO, we are deploying neutron polarisation analysis capabilities for user research on our suit of instruments (http://www.ansto.gov.au/AboutANSTO/News/ACS048756). This includes diffractometer WOMBAT, spectrometers PELICAN, SIKA, TAIPAN, reflectometer PLATYPUS, SANS QUOKKA, and imagining station DINGO. This progress is enabled by a recent successful commissioning of a polarised Helium-3 station (http://www.ansto.gov.au/AboutANSTO/News/ACS048613).

PNCMI is the most comprehensive conference on the latest scientific research using polarised neutrons and on related instrumentation development. The topics include

*         Multiferroic and Chirality

*         Strongly correlated electron systems, including superconductors

*         Frustrated and disordered systems

*         Magnetic nanomaterials

*         Molecular magnetism

*         Thin films and multilayers

*         Soft matter and biology

*         Imaging

*         Instrumentation and methods, including nuclear polarisation, Larmor techniques, and depolarisation method

*         Complementary techniques (NMR, XMCD, ...)

*         Neutron scattering facility reports
