      International Conference on Neutron Scattering 2001
           9.-13. September 2001, Munich, Germany
                Technische Universität München
                      3rd Announcement

The 2001 International Conference on Neutron Scattering will be held
in Munich and Garching over four days in September 2001, with a half
day off for an excursion (to Herrenchiemsee) or a visit of the new
Neutron Source FRM-II in Garching.

The conference intends to bring together scientists using neutrons and
instrumentation specialists. Advanced instrumentation for the ever
increasing needs of the scientists will be one of the central points
of the conference. The conference will largely support the
participation of young researchers. More than 80 students and young
researchers could be subsidized so far.

During the meeting of the International Programme Committee on the
8.-9. June 2001 83 oral presentations for the scientific programme
were selected in addion to the 52 talks in the mini symposia. Due to
the large number of contributions (in total 979) their will be up to 4
parallel sessions. As soon as we get the confirmation from the
speakers, you can find the detailed Programme on our web site. An
overview about the sessions is already online and attached below.

Registration can be done on our conference web site.


There is also information about the companions program with links to
sites of interest in and around Munich. In case of interest we kindly
ask accomapning persons to register for the one day sight seeing tours

In late summer Munich is very atractive for tourists. We therefore
recommend early hotel bookings. You can do this during the online
registration via our conference organisation CTW. Furthermore a list

Scientific Programme

There will be fifteen scientific topics, which cover specific and
important areas of neutron scattering. In addition eight mini symposia
focus on particular and relevant topics. Each topic will be covered by
invited talks, which reveal some new and exciting aspects in that
area. It has become the tradition of the conference that the poster
sessions are a central part of the meeting. Therefore each session
and each mini-symposium will have its poster session.
