Dear Colleagues,

Registration is now open for the fifth workshop of the Collective  
Action for Nomadic Small Angle
Scatterers (canSAS) which will be held from October 28-31 2007 at the  
National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA.

canSAS-V is aimed at anyone with a particular interest in the use and  
application of Small-Angle Scattering (SAS) techniques; e.g.,  
Instrument/Beam line Scientists, Frequent SAS Users, SAS Beam line  
Software Developers, Facility/Third-party Software Developers  
(particularly those involved with data file formats, instrument/ 
sample environment control).

canSAS is a "self-help network" whose original stated aim was to  
promote and simplify the sharing of Small-Angle Scattering (SAS) data  
- be it light, X-ray or neutron - between Facilities and between  
Users, but its interests now also encompass the discussion and  
evaluation of emerging (principally software) technologies and the  
recommendation of "best practice" (where feasible) in pursuit of this  

Submissions for talks and posters are invited on three topic areas  
that will be the focus of the meeting:

(1) A Common Bedouin Language : Data Interchange

(2) Virtual Nomadism: Distributed collaboration and data analysis

(3) Standardized Camels: Is the hump the same whichever ruler I use
       to measure it?

More details about the meeting, contact details, abstract submission  
and registration can be found at:


We look forward to seeing you in October!
