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!
October 4th to 5th, 2021

Promoted by the LNLS/CNPEM, the second edition of XAYNAN Workshop - International Sirius Workshop on X-ray Nanospectroscopy, Nanodiffraction and Nanoimaging will be held online and free of charge from October 4-5, 2021 via the Zoom app.

This workshop aims bringing together the LNLS community – researchers, users, students, staff scientists and engineers - and experts working in the field of x-ray spectroscopy, diffraction, and imaging at leading laboratories around the world.

Abril 28th to Julho 2nd, 2021

The second edition of the Groundwater Remediation using Nano/biotechnology with focus on the Contaminated Resources in Brazil (GRUN II) will be held fully online from 28 June to 2 July, 2021. The event is organized by the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), part of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), jointly with the Teesside University (UK) and the Grounwater Research Center (CEPAS/USP).

The GRUN Conference focuses on nanotechnology and novelty remediation processes for groundwater and soil, using nano and biotechnology, among others. Invited speakers from Brazil and around the world will discuss the state-of-the-art in groundwater and soil remediation technologies and the applications regarding to Brazilian resources.

May 23rd to 28th, 2021

IPAC (International Particle Accelerator Conference) is a large annual conference in the field of particle accelerators. The conference brings together about 1,200 scientists accelerators, engineers, students and entrepreneurs from more than 30 countries to discuss the latest advances in the field of particle accelerators, synchrotron light sources, free electron laser, and associated instrumentation. The conference also includes the participation of about 100 exhibitors of equipment and products related to the field, and special meetings of funding agencies to science, workshops with specific topics, and other satellite events.

April 12th to 16th, 2021

The 2nd edition of the international event PALSA (Pan American Light Sources for Agriculture) will take place from April 14 to 16, 2021, which will focus on the investigation of dynamic processes in agriculture using synchrotron light. PALSA 2021 will have lectures, poster sessions and discussions about the use of synchrotron techniques applied to agriculture and the environment.

The meeting will be preceded by the 2nd edition of AgroEnviro Workshop, a satellite event that aims to enable new or experienced users to develop impactful agricultural and environmental research projects that take advantage of the unique capabilities of the Sirius synchrotron. From April 12 to 13, 2021, AgroEnviro Workshop will offer tutorials and demonstrations for collecting and processing data obtained from the beamlines of the new Brazilian synchrotron light source.

The event will be hosted as a fully online meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic via the Whova app.

September 14th to 18th, 2020

The International Beam Instrumentation Conference (IBIC) is dedicated to exploring the physics and engineering challenges is diagnostics and measurement techniques of particle accelerator beams. Many collaborations are established and strengthened during the conference as this is the main event in the area and is held annually, with the venues alternating between Asia, Europe and the Americas. The conference program includes tutorials, round tables and guest lectures, as well as poster sessions. An industrial exhibition takes place throughout the conference and a visit to the host institute takes place on the last day of the event. All physics and engineering professionals working with diagnosis and instrumentation on particle accelerators are part of the target audience of the event.
