The Organizing Committee of the ICNS 2017 would like to invite colleagues to organize activities such as workshops, educational courses, etc. These activities need to satisfy the following criteria:Satellite Meeting Application form
- They should be held in close proximity to the venue of the ICNS 2017; i.e., Korea, China, Chinese Taipei and Japan.
- The timing of the activities should not be very remote from the ICNS 2017.
If you would like to organize a satellite meeting, please fill out the application form below and send it to the ICNS 2017 Secretariat (email@example.com).
Rooms for the meeting will be provided by the Organizing Committee of the ICNS 2017 only on Friday, July 14th at Daejeon Convention Center. The rooms will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

List of Satellite Meetings
Neutron diffraction and the nanoscale
Diffraction is a standard technique to study crystal structure, alignment, texture and grain structure in hard matter. The important role of neutron diffraction in (hard) materials has been cemented by the penetrative and non-ionising nature of neutrons allowing non-destructive measurements in quite unusual sample environments, the sensitivity of neutrons to thermal motions, magnetic fields and the opportunities for isotopic studies.
Similar issues arise in soft matter, where material properties are highly influenced by analogues to these quantities formed by the arrangements of ensembles of molecules, often in a solvent, such as amphiphilic molecules or polymers rather than atoms. The structures formed consequentially occur at longer length-scales, and the role of thermal motions is rather different. In this intermediate length scale, a particular limitation of current instrumentation is the range of scattering vectors between classical diffractometers and SANS instrumentation, but also the ability to resolve diffraction features in scattering curves over a range of scattering vectors/length-scales. A few instruments across the world are specifically adapted to cover this intermediate length scale (the recently upgraded D16 diffractometer at ILL, NIMROD at ISIS, EQ-SANS at ORNL, AND/R at NIST), and improved q-resolution is challenge for instrument scientists to pursue many kinds of new science. This is an important feature of TOF SANS instruments with adjustable resolution choppers (Bilby at ANSTO and D33 at ILL).
The aim of this cross-disciplinary meeting will be to review and discuss the state-of-the-art in neutron diffraction at the mesoscale and to bring together researchers from a variety of scientific disciplines including soft matter, materials science, and biology. Current and future developments in the field will be presented to promote and adapt the use of neutrons to the needs of the community. The growing importance of sample environments and in-situ techniques will also be addressed.
SpICE: Controlling spectrometers all over the world
The LabVIEW based, neutron Instrument control program, SpICE or Spectrometer Instrument Control Environment was developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is now used at several facilities around the world. Each group has slightly altered the underlying code to suit their needs. This workshop plans to bring together these groups to discuss the advantages of their changes with a goal to creating a network of programmers to help maintain SpICE and instruments and computational power changes.
International Conference on Neutron Optics (NOP2017)
Date: July 5-8, 2017
Place: Nara Kasugano International Forum IRAKA, Nara, Japan
Official Website: http://www.nop2017.org/
Contact Person: Dr. Kazuhisa Kakurai, CROSS-Tokai
The workshop is next in the series of Neutron Optics workshops previously held in Tokyo (2004), Villingen (2007), Alpe d'Huez (2010) and Munich (2013). Its aims is to provide a platform for the exchange information in all fields of neutron optics with emphasis on new concepts and recent technical developments. The discussions and developments following these workshop meetings successfully provided neutron optics elements commonly used in the state-of-the-art, large-scale neutron facilities around the world. In the recent years the practical use of compact neutron sources has been recognized to support and promote the neutron sciences and applications pursued at these large-scale facilities.
The advanced optics are activating new ideas to the refinement of neutron properties and the search for new physics beyond the standard model of elementary particles and also the practical use of application-oriented compact neutron sources for the development of individual techniques, materials and life sciences, and medical and industrial applications. Following the increasing importance of the intimate interplay of neutron source, optics and detection system, we would like to organize the International Conference on Neutron Optics (NOP2017) on July 5 to 8 in Nara, Japan as a satellite event prior to the ICNS2017 with following topics.
(1) Optical Components
(a) Optics (reflective Optics, refractive optics, diffractive optics, interference optics)
(b) Polarization (polarizer, spin analyzer, polarized target)
(c) Neutron Moderator to Epithermal, Thermal, Cold and Very-Cold Regions
(d) Down-conversion to Very-Cold and Ultracold Regions
(2) Detector Technologies
(a) Scintillation Detector
(b) Gaseous Detector
(c) Solid State Detector
(3) Application-oriented Assembly
(a) Compact Neutron Source

(c) Neutron Imaging and Scattering Instrumentation
(4) Fundamental Physics
(5) Material and Life Science
(6) Medical Applications
(7) Industrial Applications
