2006 American Conference on Neutron Scattering

St. Charles, IL, June 18-22, 2006

On-line abstract submission at:


The third American Conference on Neutron Scattering will be held at the
Pheasant Run Conference Center in St. Charles, IL, June 18-22, 2006. The
conference is being organized under the auspices of the Neutron
Scattering Society of America <http://www.neutronscattering.org/>
(NSSA) with local arrangements for the conference being made by the
Intense Pulsed Neutron Source <http://www.pns.anl.gov/>  at Argonne
National Laboratory <http://www.anl.gov/> .

The conference is intended to showcase recent scientific results in
neutron science.  The specific sorting categories for abstracts are:
Biology, Chemistry and Materials, Engineering and Applications,
Instrumentation and Software, Soft Matter, Condensed Matter Physics and
Fundamental Physics.

The afternoon of Wednesday, June 21, is being set aside in anticipation
of the need for breakout sessions.  Breakout sessions can be used to
accommodate groups that want to plan, organize and discuss particular
projects such as the development of a specific neutron instrument, data
collection or analysis systems, etc.  If you have a well-defined set of
topics you would like to organize, please email Bruce Gaulin
<mailto:gaulin at nightshade.physics.mcmaster.ca>  or Arthur Schultz
<mailto:ajschultz at anl.gov>  with your request for a breakout session.

There will be two tutorial-style workshops scheduled for Sunday, June
18.  See the conference website for details.

The conference encourages the participation of graduate students,
postdocs, and new faculty, as well as established researchers in neutron
scattering and allied disciplines. For the former groups, funds will be
available to help defray travel expenses.  The NSSA Prize for
Outstanding Student Research will also be awarded at the meeting (see
conference website for details).
