    The International Conference on Neutron Optics (NOP2017)
5 - 8 July 2017, the Nara Kasugano International Forum (I.RA.KA), Japan.

 The International Conference on Neutron Optics (NOP2017) will take 
place in Nara, Japan, at the Nara Kasugano International Forum (I.RA.KA)
from Wednesday 5 July to Saturday 8 July 2017.

 This conference is a satellite event to the International Conference 
on Neutron Scattering in Daejeon, Korea (ICNS2017, 9-13 July 2017).
The conference is next in the series of Neutron Optics conferences
previously held in Villigen (1999), Tokyo (2004), Villigen (2007),
Alpe d'Huez (2010) and Munich (2013). Its aim is to provide a platform
for the exchange of information in all fields of neutron optics with
emphasis on new concepts and recent technical developments. The 
discussions and developments following these conferences successfully 
neutron optics elements commonly used in the state-of-the-art, large-
neutron facilities around the world. In recent years the practical use 
compact neutron sources has been recognized to support and promote the 
sciences and applications pursued at these large-scale facilities.
Following the increasing importance of the intimate interplay of 
physics and neutron science for future innovative neutron sources, 
optics and 
detection systems, we are planning to cover the following topics.
