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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
