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.
July 3rd to 7th, 2023

The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) and the Institute of Physics of University of Campinas (UNICAMP) will hold the 41st International Conference on Vacuum Ultraviolet and X-ray Physics (VUVX 2023) from 3 to 7 July, 2023, at Campinas-SP, Brazil.

The International Conference VUVX 2023 will bring together scientists from all over the world working in fields involving electromagnetic radiation in the vacuum ultravioletsoft X-ray and hard X-ray spectral regions generated by synchrotron, laser, or plasma based sources. Topics to be covered range from instrumentation and methods development to applications in a variety of fields. 

July 10th to 21st, 2023
The “Ricardo Rodrigues” Synchrotron Light School (ER2LS) seeks to expand the training of the current community of users, in addition to boosting the education and preparation of new users, potentially able to use synchrotron light techniques in their research areas. More information at the website.
August 7th to 9th, 2023

The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) will hold the 6th Brazil Interpore Chapter Conference on Porous Media from 7-9 August 2023 in Campinas-SP, Brazil.

This event aims to disseminate knowledge on porous media related topics and strengthen the collaboration between the Brazilian interpore community and the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory by bringing together international and local specialists from the academy, industry, and experimental areas related to porous media research.

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.

May 20th to 21st, 2020

The 1st annual AgroEnviro Workshop – Applications of Synchrotron Radiation for Foundational Science in Agricultural and Environmental Research – will be held on 20 and 21 May, 2020 at the brand new Sirius building of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), located at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas, state of São Paulo, in Brazil. The aim of the workshop is to motivate scientists from diverse regions of Brazil to utilize the highly advanced 4th generation synchrotron, Sirius, to address fundamental science questions for solving agricultural and environmental problems of concern in Brazil.

January 22nd to 23rd, 2020

The aim of the Cateretê workshop is to present and discuss the new scientific perspectives offered at the Coherent Scattering beamline Cateretê, specifically X-ray imaging and time-resolved capabilities. The Cateretê beamline at Sirius will be dedicated to coherent and time-resolved scattering experiments. It will provide cutting edge research tools that are non-existent today in Brasil, like 3D imaging with 10’s nanometer resolution, X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS) to study dynamics and ultra-small angle X-ray scattering.

November 5th to 7th, 2019

The 29th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) aims to gather the LNLS user community, encouraging the exchange of experiences and debates on the existing and future facilities. It is an important forum for discussion, evaluation and presentation of proposals for the improvement of the research structures. With the imminent inauguration Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, the participation of the scientific community becomes essential to describe their needs and expectations for the new synchrotron source. The RAU meeting is the ideal place to foster this debate.

October 8th to 9th, 2019

The first CARNAÚBA Workshop will bring together the LNLS community – external users, staff scientists and engineers – and experts working in the field of X-ray spectroscopy, diffraction and imaging at leading facilities around the world to present and discuss the new scientific opportunities offered by X-ray nanoprobes with scanning energy capabilities.
