Neutron and Nano User Meeting

August 12 – 15, 2013
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
ORNL Conference Center, Building 5200
Tennessee Conference Rooms 202A/B/C

The Center for Nanophase Materials Science (CNMS) and the Neutron Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are collaborating on two meetings to be held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory during the period August 12 – 15, 2013.

The Science @ Neutron and Nano Facilities Sessions on Tuesday – Wednesday, August 13 – 14, will focus on “Science at User Facilities: Complementary Techniques.” These sessions will present research at user facilities in different science areas with the anticipated outcome to show the resources enabled by and/or complementary nature of resources of user facilities such as CNMS, High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), and other national resources including microscopy and computing simulation.

The User Workshops on Monday and Thursday, August 12 and 15 will focus on “New Techniques, New Users, and Enhancing the User Experience.” These workshops will have the goal of attracting new users from across our nation’s diverse science program based on our existing capabilities, and also identifying characteristics and capabilities of new and improved resources, including experimental facilities, to enhance the user experience. Suggestions will be solicited from all attendees to improve and streamline user processes.
