We were all deeply saddened by the recent passing of Jim Jorgensen after a
long battle with cancer. In his honor, we are organizing a Symposium on
"Opportunities in Neutron Powder Diffraction", that will celebrate recent
developments in a field to which Jim made so many seminal contributions. It
will highlight progress in both science and instrumentation, with
contributions from leading scientists and colleagues with whom Jim
interacted as a scientist and as a person.  We invite all those who want to
celebrate his scientific achievements and discover their relevance to future
research opportunities to attend.
