Virtual: MLZ Conference 2021 – Neutrons for Life Sciences

21-06-08 12:00 - 21-06-11 15:00

From the event website: Life Sciences is a rapidly expanding field in the use of neutrons. The number of users at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz-Zentrum (MLZ) performing experiments related to life sciences is constantly growing. Be it contrast variation for matching out protein, DNA or lipids or the hunt for catalytical important hydrogen atoms, neutrons play an important role in determining structures of biologically relevant molecules or membranes. Neutron tomography on living plants or tissue uses the huge difference in incoherent scattering of hydrogen as compared to deuterium. Using incoherent and coherent inelastic neutron scattering, investigation of equilibrium dynamics of biological systems is possible on the picosecond and nanosecond time scale. With future neutron sources, time resolved investigations will become more and more important. Dedicated sample environment and additional in situ measurement techniques all optimized for small sample volumes will be needed in the future.

This is why the MLZ Conference 2021 intends to bring together experts in the field of Life Sciences regardless whether they have used neutron scattering techniques or not. The conference will try to cover all relevant fields of life sciences and will discuss on how to improve neutron instrumentation, access to neutron beam time, sample environments and support labs for future life sciences users.

    Welcome to the 16th International Conference on Surface X-ray and Neutron Scattering (SXNS16)

    The SXNS16 conference will be held in Lund, Sweden. Lund is 1000 years old with about 130000 inhabitants, in the province of Skåne, at the southern tip of Sweden. It is a charming cobblestoned town with many historical sights and is home to one of Scandinavia’s oldest and largest universities. At the same time, it offers small town charm and convenient access to the nearby metropolis of Malmö, just across the Øresund bridge from Copenhagen, with its large international airport.

    The conference is co-organized by the European Spallation Source and MAX IV Laboratory and supported by the Lund Institute of Advanced Neutron and X-ray Science (LINXS). It will emphasize novel techniques for surface x-ray and neutron scattering including instrumentation and source development. Topics will include in-situ and in-operando surface studies, nanostructured surfaces and interfaces, surface and interfaces in soft matter, biological interfaces, emergent interfacial materials, and dynamics of surfaces, interfaces and nanostructures.
