The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) hosts and organizes conferences and other national and international scientific events that bring together researchers and students to discuss the latest developments related to synchrotron light techniques as well as accelerator physics and engineering. LNLS also regularly organizes schools and workshops aiming to popularize synchrotron techniques and to train users, new and regular, in obtaining, processing and analyzing experimental data. Check out the upcoming LNLS events below.
Janeiro 23rd to Março 8th, 2023
Registration for the “Fluka Introductory Course” is open until January 9, 2023. FLUKA is a Monte Carlo particle interaction and transport code widely used in diverse areas such as shielding calculations, dosimetry, and particle physics. The Course will cover from basic topics, such as defining the geometry of the beam and detectors, to specific applications such as user routines and simulation in clusters. It will take place online on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from January 23rd and September 08th. March 2023. Register!
November 7th to 11th, 2022
The meeting aims to gather researchers who use LNLS scientific instrumentation to perform cutting edge experiments in areas such as materials science, health and pharmacology, environmental science energy, biotechnology, x-ray Imaging, oil and gas, chemistry, and others.

October 5th to 6th, 2022
The 3rd annual AgroEnviro Workshop – Rhizosphere and Hyphosphere Processes Affecting Phosphorus, Carbon, and Nutrient Cycling – will be held from 5-6 October, 2022 in Campinas-SP, in Brazil. The event will focus on rhizosphere and hyphosphere biogeochemical processes that affect cycling of soil phosphorus, carbon, and other nutrients, discussing topics of critical importance to the sustainability of agriculture and environmental stewardship and enlighten the audience to ongoing and potential uses of synchrotron techniques at Sirius for scientific discoveries in the field. 
October 3rd to 4th, 2022
The H2MAT will promote the meeting of the LNLS-CNPEM external users´ community, among them researchers, students, engineers, staff scientists and experts to discuss the applications of synchrotron radiation and related techniques in the study of hierarchical and heterogeneous materials.  Registration with abstract submission for the H2MAT - International Sirius Workshop on Heterogeneous and HierarchicalMaterials is open until 30 August, and the event will happen on October 3 and 4, entirely online.  They will discuss what are the new scientific opportunities offered in the main laboratories around the world and what are the challenges of research and experimentation in multidisciplinary areas, such as catalysis, energetic materials, porous materials, ceramics, cement, and carbon, among others.  Researchers and students are invited to present their scientific cases and discoveries in multidisciplinary fields. 
September 17th to 20th, 2022
The SAXS school is aimed at students and early career scientists enthusiastic to learn SAXS focusing on the scattering data analysis of biological systems, such as proteins and membranes. More information at the website.
September 11th to 16th, 2022

The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), part of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), will host the 18th edition of the International Small Angle Scattering Conference (SAS2022) from September 11 to 16, 2022.

SAS is a triennial conference which aims bringing together the worldwide small angle scatterers experts to share their experience. The event consists of plenary lectures with internationally recognized SAS experts, several parallel sessions of seminars on selected topics covering diverse scientific fields such as structural biology, polymer science, catalysis, instrumentation, modelling, among others.
