The Neutron Scattering Society of America (NSSA) and the SNS-HFIR User's
Group (SHUG) are jointly organizing the first American Conference on
Neutron Scattering (ACNS), to be held June 23-27, 2002, in Knoxville,
Tennessee. The conference will be held at one of the national neutron
centers approximately every other year, in years that do not coincide
with either the International or European Conferences on Neutron

The conference will have a dual purpose. It is intended to showcase
recent scientific results in neutron science in a wide range of fields,
including soft condensed matter and liquids, biology, magnetism,
engineering materials, chemical spectroscopy, crystal structure, and
elementary excitations. This will be accomplished through a combination
of invited and contributed talks as well as poster sessions. Equally
important, the conference is intended to fulfill many of the objectives
of a facility users' meeting but on a national scale. Hence, the
conference will provide an opportunity for the major neutron centers in
North America to interact with neutron users and will provide a forum
for users to raise issues that relate to using these facilities. This
year's conference will include an update on the United States'
next-generation neutron source project, the Spallation Neutron Source
(SNS), a multilaboratory partnership, and will allow for feedback from
the neutron-scattering community.

We are in the early stages of planning and encourage input from the
community regarding any and all aspects of the meeting. Please feel free

organizing committee listed below:
