The 5th International Workshop On Quasi-Elastic Neutron Scattering

31 August to 1 September 2000

Edinburgh, UK

First Circular and Call for Papers

The Workshop

QENS 2000 is the fifth workshop on Quasi-Elastic Neutron Scattering and
follows previous successful meetings organized in Windsor (1992), San
Sebastian (1993), Parma (1995) and Nyköping (1998). The Workshop will deal
with all aspects of quasi-elastic scattering of neutron, in particular: 

· Applied quasi-elastic scattering
· Biological systems
· Dynamics in confined geometries
· Glass transition
· Instrumentation
· Ionic and proton conductors
· Liquids
· Magnetic systems
· Polymers

The Workshop will start on Thursday 31st August and end on Friday 1st
September, with the Conference dinner. The programme will include invited
speakers, oral and poster presentations.

Abstract Submissions

Oral and poster contributions are sought as papers in any area of
quasi-elastic neutron scattering. The proceedings will be published in
Physica B.

Conference Venue

QENS 2000 will be held at the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, UK. The
Garden is located one mile north of the city center. Details can be found at

The City of Edinburgh

Edinburgh, the historic capital of Scotland, offers a unique combination of
art, culture and heritage and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. To the
south, the Pentland Hills and the Scottish Borders, to the north the two
famous bridges over the Firth of Forth, which act as a gateway to Fife and
the Scottish Highlands.

The Castle, situated on an extinct volcanic outcrop, dominates the skyline
of the old town along with Arthur's Seat and the Scott Monument. The famous
Royal Mile, along which can be found the Palace of the New Parliament, links
Edinburgh Castle with the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Edinburgh attracts most
of its visitors in the summer, particularly during the well-known Edinburgh
Arts Festival, which is bursting with cultural activity.
