On-line abstract submission at:
http://acns2006.anl.gov/ <BLOCKED::http://acns2006.anl.gov/> 

To accommodate the large number of people who attended the APS meeting
last week, the deadline for abstracts has been extended to Monday, March
27. You can submit your abstract online at the ACNS 2006 web site at
http://acns2006.anl.gov/ <BLOCKED::http://acns2006.anl.gov/> . 

You may also register for one of the two tutorials which will be
presented on Sunday, June 18. Travel support is available for students
at the Support Request
<BLOCKED::http://acns2006.anl.gov/Support_Request/index.html>  link.

*	Neutron Scattering Fundamentals and Instrumentation as a Probe
of Materials on the Nanoscale
*	Magnetic Structure Analysis from Neutron Powder Diffraction Data
Using GSAS <BLOCKED::http://acns2006.anl.gov/Tutorials/magnetic.html>  

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
<BLOCKED::mailto:gaulin at mcmaster.ca>  or Arthur Schultz
<BLOCKED::mailto:ajschultz at anl.gov>  with your request for a breakout

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. To apply for travel support,
