Neutrons and Nano Workshops and User Meetings

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, ORNL Conference Center, Bldg. 5200, Tennessee Rms. 202A/B/C

August 12-15, 2013

The Executive Committees of the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) User Group and the SNS-HFIR User Group (SHUG) are organizing a combined two-day 2013 User Meeting bracketed by related User Workshops at Oak Ridge National Laboratory during August 12 – 15, 2013.   Together, the nano and neutron user facilities, along with related resources at Oak Ridge, support the research efforts of thousands of users annually from across the U.S., North America, and locations around the world.  
The Science @ Neutron and Nano Facilities Sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 13 and 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, HFIR, SNS, and other national resources including microscopy and high-performance computing.
The User Workshops on Monday and Thursday, August 12 and 15, 2013 will focus on “New Techniques, New Users, and Enhancing the User Experience.”  These workshops will be of interest to new users as they will showcase the current resources, inform prospective users of future resources, and provide opportunities for suggestion of other needs to further the common scientific mission.
A combination of workshops and breakout sessions are being planned with both plenary and invited talks from users and ORNL staff experts. The user meeting website at contains the agendas and registration details.  A single registration form is provided for convenience.  There is no charge to attend these meetings.
