Virtual: Northern Lights on Food (NLF) II 2021

From the event website: The Northern Lights on Food network provides researchers in the food field with the opportunity to build unique excellence to take full advantage of the new research tools available at the European Spallation Source, ESS and MAX IV Laboratory in Lund. These tools are anticipated to lead to new knowledge and cutting-edge technology and innovation for the food industry, which can in turn strengthen the long-term competitiveness of the Swedish food sector to meet the objectives related to sustainable development.

The aim of Northern Lights on Food is to:

  • Increase the awareness and competence of using X-ray and neutron-based techniques in food research and development in both academia and industry.

  • Engage the food sector in the design of ESS and MAX IV and create financing paths to actively participate in the development, which includes adapting the existing and planned instruments, designing sample environments and developing data analysis programs for food-related issues.

  • Establish a long-term strategy for collaborative interdisciplinary research within food areas utilizing advanced characterization methods from ESS and MAX IV.

  • Promote the establishment of a long-term financing system for the use of advanced technologies specifically designed to answer food science issues, both on Nordic and European scale.

    We are pleased to announce the new date for the conference is 11th to 14th January 2022. Further details on programme and venue changes will follow in due course.

    The ORSO satelite meeting will still happen as a virtual meeting during the June 2021 slot that has now been vacated.

    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.
