Following the publication of FAPESP/Finep call for proposals, which supports the development of technological demands related to the Sirius Project, LNLS will promote the roundtable Parcerias Sirius. The event aims to present 13 challenges proposed by LNLS for the development and construction of the new lightsource to companies from São Paulo State.
The SAXS Workbench, the 3rd training school for SAXS beginners, will be held at the LNLS in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, between October 28th and 30th, 2015. The main idea of this training is to help and build up the user community at SAXS1 and SAXS2 beamlines at the LNLS. The SAXS group will offer comprehensive hands-on training in synchrotron data collection and analysis for the first time synchrotron users.
The LNLS 25th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) will take place from September 16th to 17th, 2015, in Campinas, Brazil. RAU has the objective of encouraging debates, the exchange of experiences and the integration of the LNLS user community. It is an important forum for discussion, evaluation and presentation of proposals for the improvement of the research structures and of the scientific instrumentation available at the synchrotron light source. The meeting represents also an opportunity for the exchange of information about the research carried out at the facilities.
The 4th School on X-Ray Spectroscopy Methods will be held at the LNLS, in Campinas, Brazil, between September 14th and 15th. The event will happen just before the LNLS Annual User’s Meeting (RAU), as a satellite event. This school will focus on the fundamentals of x-ray spectroscopy methods and data analysis and its applications. The first day will include introductory lectures about the theoretical and experimental aspects of hard x-ray spectroscopy, followed by one day of advanced lectures and tutorials on data analysis and examples of applications in different fields.
The 2015 IUCr High-Pressure Workshop will be held from September 12th to 15th at the CNPEM campus. The primary focus of the meeting will be recent scientific advances in high pressure techniques. Presentations will cover a variety of subjects in and related to high-pressure crystallography, including crystal structures, phase transitions and their kinetics, new materials synthesis, Earth and planetary science, soft and biological matter, physical and chemical properties, theory and computation, as well as technique developments for high-pressure studies at synchrotron, neutron and laboratory-based facilities.
