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.
January 15th to 19th, 2024
ESPEM is aimed at high school teachers from Latin American and the Caribbean and proposes to develop new ideas for approaching modern science in the classroom, through interaction with invited speakers from the education field and scientists from CNPEM. More information at the website.
Julho 31st to Agosto 2nd, 2019

Between July 31st and August 2nd, 2019, the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), part of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), will host the event Synchrotron Techniques Under High Pressure (PRESSYNC). PRESSYNC is a satellite workshop to the 27th International Conference on High Pressure Science and Technology (AIRAPT27). Taking advantage of this opportunity, the PRESSYNC Satellite Workshop will bring together world leaders in high-pressure science to discuss the potential of synchrotron-based techniques under high pressure on the new fourth-generation synchrotron light sources, such as Sirius.

July 15th to 26th, 2019

The third edition of the Brazilian Synchrotron School: “Fundaments and Applications” will take place between July 15th and 26th, 2019, at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) in Campinas, SP. The School aims to increase the capabilities of the current LNLS user community, as well as to promote the training of new users, which have the potential to use synchrotron light techniques in their research areas. The two-week event will be composed by theoretical and practical classes, lectured by LNLS researchers. 

June 24th to 25th, 2019

The workshop on Groundwater Remediation using Nano/biotechnology with focus on the Contaminated Resources in Brazil (GRUN) is jointly organized by Teesside University (UK) and the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM). This event will be held from June 24th and 25th, 2019, at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), in Campinas, SP. This workshop will be the first event in Brazil focusing on the use of metal nanoparticles for in-situ degradation of groundwater contaminates. The conference will bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and engineers to collectively explore how these technological advances can be applied to Brazilian groundwater systems. On June 26th an extra hands-on course will be offered exclusively to 20 participants based on selection by the Organizing Committee.

January 23rd to 24th, 2019

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.

January 14th to 18th, 2019

Organized by the Brazilian Physics Society (SBF) and LNLS, the first edition of Synchrotron School For High School Teachers (ESPEM) will discuss ideas on how to introduce modern physics into high school classrooms. The School will consist of lectures and computational demonstrations, round tables with the researchers and visits at Sirius, the new Brazilian Synchrotron Light Source, and otherfacilities. Also, the meeting aims to gather teachers from several Brazilian states, encouraging the exchange of experiences with LNLS researchers.
