Neutrons in Structural Biology (NISB 2017), ILL, 7-9 June 2017

Neutrons have become an increasingly powerful and sophisticated tool in structural biology in the recent years. In particular, over the last decade, improvements in sources, instrumentation and sample preparation have revolutionized the scope of neutron scattering studies of biological systems. As in all areas of modern structural biology there is now strong emphasis on interdisciplinarity with neutrons occupying a central role alongside the other major techniques including X-rays, NMR, EM… Over the years the focus of this meeting has shifted away from technical aspects relating directly to the development of neutron techniques towards a more science driven event where neutrons provide crucial information alongside the other techniques available.This 2017 edition will focus on highlighting recent results in fundamental biology, as well as considering the future of the field and the implications for the type of science that can be considered as well as for the instruments required. This meeting typically gathers mixture of researchers some of whom are experienced in the field of neutron scattering with others whose work may benefit from these approaches.

Complementarity between Optics and Neutron spectroscopy in the THz domain – SON2017, LIPhy, 19-20 June 2017

The present workshop will focus on technical aspects concerning the THz range. Important developments were made in the last 10 years in the field of optical techniques enabling to reach this spectral rage (0.1-10 THz, time-domain THz), a frequency domain also covered by INS and QENS. A rigorous confrontation of experimental observables obtained with both techniques, and emphasis of the complementarity in various scientific domains is the purpose of the workshop.

The workshop will be organized in 5 distinct sessions, all opened by an invited pedagogical talk:

  • Instrumentation
  • Liquids
  • Soft matter and biology
  • Materials
  • Magnetism

X-Ray and Neutron Science - International Student Summer Programme at ILL/ESRF - 3-30 September 2017

, The ILL/ESRF International Student Summer Programme on X-Ray and Neutron Science is aimed at undergraduate students. It will consist in a 4-week experimental project embedded in a research g roup of ESRF or ILL, together with a series of introductory lectures on the principles and applications of X-ray and neutron science (magnetism, materials science, soft matter, structural biology, imaging, etc.).
