The Global Conference series event organizer Conference Series Ltd invites all the participants from all over the world to attend the prestigious scientific “4th International Conference on Condensed Matter and Materials Physics” which is to be held during August 16-17, 2018 at London, UK. It is among the World’s leading Scientific Conference which hosts scientific sessions and sub-sessions on cutting edge research and latest innovations in the field of Condensed Matter and Materials Physics across the globe. The attendees can find some exclusive sessions and panel discussions on latest originations in Condensed Matter and Materials Physics.
Condensed matter and materials physics is the science of the material world around us. The curiosity about the natural world led to queries about condensed-matter systems, such as water, rocks, snow, ice, and how these react to light, heat, and mechanical forces. This hunger for fundamental understanding has been inextricably tied to the desire to manipulate nature by creating new materials to serve human needs. Condensed matter physics is the branch of physics that studies the properties of the large collections of atoms that compose both exotic and ordinary materials. Condensed matter and materials physics advances led in turn to the innovation of devices that now form the basis of much of our technological world, including the transistor, the integrated circuit, the laser, magnetic resonance imaging, liquid-crystal displays, and, more recently, high-efficiency solid-state lighting. At present, it is so important to the modern computer and communicating industries
International Conference on Condensed Matter and Materials Physics which is going to be the biggest conference dedicated to Condensed Matter and Materials Physics professionals providing a premier technical forum for reporting and learning about the latest new generation technologies developed during the course of time along with discussing their applications.

Modern scientific methods have led to a wealth of information in archaeology, cultural heritage research, and art conservation concerning the composition of artefacts both on a molecular level and on the mechanical built of objects that can not be dismantled without destroying them. X-ray methods from radiography to fluorescence have become widespread, but also neutron methods gain increasing interest. Due to the non-destructive nature of neutrons they have been developed to an invaluable tool in analysing precious archaeological objects.
Neutrons can penetrate deep into the cultural artefact or beneath the surface of paintings to unveil structures at the microscopic scale and thus determine the chemical composition, provide 3D images of the inner parts of the artefacts, and reveal organic material like wood, leather or bones in sealed metal or stone containers. Whole artefacts can be placed in the neutron beam and analysed at room conditions, without sample preparation. Measurements are made in real time, which can be useful for testing conservation materials and methods.
Two- and three-dimensional imaging provides visual information, while neutron activation analysis delivers elemental composition information, and neutron scattering reveals alloys and textures. Thanks to modern detectors, neutron imaging can even be performed at low-power research reactors, which allows the application for cultural heritage research also at small research reactors throughout the world.
The MLZ Conference Neutrons for Culture and Arts addresses archaeologists and conservators from museums and universities and aims to illustrate the potential of neutron methods in cultural heritage research. Talks and posters will be presented by renowned international researchers, physicists, and archaeologists in the field to demonstrate state-of-the-art methods and applications.

The present Advanced School organized by the Italian Society of Neutron Spectroscopy is addressed to specializing students, PhD students, post-docs and researchers (with no limitation in age) with some experience in neutron scattering and interested in deepening their knowledge about the statistical and computational methods of typical aid in neutron data analysis and interpretation. A highly interactive environment is expected: with lecturers, tutors and participants in continuous interaction, in the spirit of a workshop or symposium. Data handling, specific correction procedures, main analysis programs, and simulation techniques will be dealt with for neutron diffraction, inelastic and quasi-elastic spectroscopy, and small-angle scattering, in the attempt of facing the main difficulties that can be encountered AFTER the, sometimes trivial, collection of count rates in a file. Innumerable details regard welldone neutron data analysis, and the ways to reach some confidence about the reliability of the results, based either on comparison with simulation data or by statistical checks, or finally by physical soundness.
The lectures are generally envisaged to be in English. Only in the absence of non-Italian people in the audience (composed of both lecturers/tutors and participants) the spoken language might be agreed to be Italian. The general lectures will be followed by equally very important tutorials, which are meant to be the core of the school and the topic moment for discussion and exchange between tutors and participants. Tutorials are intended to give specific information on the typical tools used for data treatment and evaluation of the results in the various areas relevant to neutron scattering.Organiser

Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USADescription
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in conjunction with NC State University, present the 7th annual workshop on neutron scattering applications in structural biology.
The unique potential of neutron scattering in structural biology arises from the strong interaction of neutrons with hydrogen (H) and its deuterium (D) isotope. This property makes the information available from neutron scattering unique and a valuable complement to data obtained from other structural techniques. Individual hydrogen/deuterium atoms are visualized in neutron density maps from crystallographic data at the resolution typical of most protein structures (2.0 – 2.5 Å).

The 12th Central European Training School on neutron techniques will be held from May 6 to May 11, 2018.
Application is now open. Deadline is the 15th of March.
CETS provides insight into neutron scattering techniques and their application for studies on structure and dynamics of condensed matter. Comprehensive experimental skills and guidance in result interpretation are going to be conveyed. The school will be a forum for the presentation and discussion of actual research works of young scientists.
Since the restart of the refurbished Budapest Research Reactor in 1992 international meetings are regularly organised in order to promote the national and Central European regional user activity, to contribute to instrument development as well as to facilitate the access of new users. Using the experimental stations, training of students and newcomers to the field is also regularly held for Hungarian university groups. Since 1999 a yearly joint Austrian-Hungarian training course used to be organised as well. Since February 2000 the cold neutron research facility is in operation, a liquid hydrogen cold source and the adjoining supermirror neutron guides provide excellent research opportunities on six experimental stations located in the neutron guide hall and the reactor hall. Therefore, the regular Austrian-Hungarian training course was extended, and we offer the possibilities of the cold neutron instruments for a hands-on-training for the European user community.
We are welcoming PhD and master students, post-doc scientists as well as newcomers to the neutron research from the field of structural research in physics, chemistry, biology, material science etc. The number of participants is limited to 25 (because of the training facilities available). There is no limit for the theoretical lectures.
The training consists of 2 days of lectures, 3 days of experimental work and 1 additional day of poster presentation and e-learning presentation. The lectures will give an introduction on neutron sources, neutron scattering techniques and recent developments in the field of neutron optics. The experiments will demonstrate to the students the art of utilization of instruments at a large-scale facility. They will get acquainted with sample preparation, experiment planning and running as well as data processing and interpretation of results. The participants will be divided into groups of maximum 5 students in order to facilitate individual involvement in the performance of the experiment. Each group will perform one or two neutron scattering experiments per day and each group will work at 5 different instruments. The official language of the lectures and practical works is English.
- Small Angle Neutron Scattering (YS)
- Reflectometer (GINA)
- Material Test Diffractometer (MTEST)
- Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis (PGAA)
- Neutron imaging (RAD/NIPS-NORMA)
- Time of flight diffractometer (TOF)
- Neutron diffractometer (PSD)
See detailed presentation of the instruments at BNC site by clicking here.
Poster and Flash presentations
The participants will have the possibility to present a poster on the first school day. The Poster section will give the opportunity to the participants to present their field of interest as well as to have discussions with the instrument scientists about their research topics. The required poster size is A0 (841mm x 1189mm), portrait.
The Poster section has a special part, the so called Flash presentations. The participants are welcomed to present in 5 minutes and maximum 3 projected slides their poster. Preparation of a poster and a flash presentation will be highly appreciated in the selection of the participants and the award of a grant.

From process qualification until component certification, additive manufacturing presents big challenges as a new field of material processing with multiple new parameters. Therefore, new insights concerning characterization are envisaged for process and component standards and certification, as well as for experimental benchmark input for modellings.
European large installations ILL and ESRF offer a common frame for additive manufacturing industrial investigations, where unique static (scanning) and dynamic (in-situ) studies on stresses and imaging, from the nanometre until several centimetres range, are possible. To foster industrial escalation of additive manufacturing, we aim at bringing together industry and applied sciences to address key manufacturing issues regarding final quality assessment of products.
To have a look at the Program follow this link.
- For non-destructive and bulk characterization: neutrons can penetrate several cm into matter.
- For new information: neutrons interact in a different way with matter, hence giving another contrast, i.e. for hydrogen!
- For sample environment and in-situ studies
- High energy X-rays, allowing higher penetration depth for real 3D imaging of high density samples.
- High intensity X-rays for non-destructive probing of material structure and devices with high spatial resolution from millimetres to nanometres.
- High intensity X-rays for real time measurements with less than a microsecond time resolution and high-throughput analysis under real manufacturing and operating conditions.

Phoenix, Arizona, USADescription
Time and time again, “multidisciplinary” research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 2-6, 2018, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Phoenix, Arizona, to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines.
The 2018 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience. It provides a window on the future of materials science, and offers an opportunity for researchers—from students and postdoctoral fellows, to Nobel and Kavli Prize Laureates—to exchange technical information and network with colleagues.
The Materials Research Society has developed a far-reaching series of programs that expose students, teachers, and life-long learners to the excitement of discovery and the significance of science in their daily lives. For interested MRS members, these programs provide an opportunity to participate in outreach activities, support national STEM education initiatives, and play a significant role in developing and nurturing the next generation of materials scientists.
The scientific process is no longer just about generating ideas, but about freely sharing those ideas with broader audiences. Now more than ever, the ability to recruit students, attract collaborators, and secure funding is tied to the ability to successfully bring research out of the laboratory and to the general public. Through its continuum of broader impacts programming and professional development sessions at MRS meetings, an ever-expanding awards portfolio, a University Chapter program that is now international in scope, and so much more, MRS, with the support of the Materials Research Society Foundation, is well positioned to engage, educate and fascinate into the next decade.Organiser

Advances in science and technology in the field of neutron science have been dominated by a fruitful combination of major international facilities supported by networks of smaller regional facilities. Recent advances in accelerator technology and neutronic design have made it possible to construct small-scale accelerator-driven neutron facilities that would be able to play a significant role in neutron technology and science. The neutron applications using compact accelerator driven neutron sources are now becoming more and more important since it can cover various fields such as material science, engineering, nuclear physics, cancer therapy, soft error, cultural heritage and so on, and therefore they would play a more significant role in the future.
The Union for Compact Accelerator-driven Neutron Sources (UCANS) was formed in 2010 to support the ongoing development of small accelerator based neutron sources around the world. Since then, fruitful meetings were held in Beijing (China) 2011, Bloomington (U.S.A) 2012, Bilbao (Spain) 2013, Sapporo (Japan) 2014, Legnaro (Italy) 2015, and Xi´an (China) 2016.
UCANS-VII, the 7th. International Meeting of the Union for Compact Accelerator-driven Neutron Sources, will be held in San Carlos de Bariloche), Province of Rio Negro, Argentina. The dates are March 11 – 15, 2018, and the venue is Hotel Amancay) located in the beautiful LLao-Llao area, at 25 Km from downtown Bariloche.

The venue of the Annual Meeting is Essen in the heart of the Ruhrgebiet that is actually not as grey as some of you might expect. In the contrary, after coal and steel industries have contracted and shifted to more environmentally friendly processes, this area has undergone a remarkable transformation. Notably, in 2010, Essen was the center of the European Capital of Culture, and in 2017, it is the European Green Capital.
Many scientific disciplines rely on crystallography, covering inter alia fields like materials sciences, geosciences, crystal structure determination, and protein crystallography. The University of Duisburg-Essen with its two campi at Duisburg and Essen (and a third campus for the University Hospital) has two central research units with direct relevance to crystallography: Nanosciences, as represented by the Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen (CeNIDE), and biological sciences, as represented by the Center for Biomedical Technology (ZMB). Both have supported the Annual Meeting. In the direct vicinity there are other major research institutions like the Universities at Bochum and Dortmund and a number of Max-Planck Institutes and Fraunhofer institutes, many of them relying on chemical, physical and biological crystallography.
A number of prominent Plenary Speakers have agreed to give presentations at our Annual Congress:
- Leonid Dubrovinsky (Bayreuth/DE): Crystallography taken to the extreme
- Holger Dobbek (Berlin/DE): Carbon oxide activation at biological Ni,Fe centres
- Kenneth Harris (Cardiff/GB): New experimental techniques for exploring crystallization pathways and structural properties of solids
- Randy J. Read (Cambridge/GB): TAn unexpected crystallographic insight into renin secretion
- Sven Lidin (Lund/SE): Structure Dynamis in Crystaline Solids
- Erdmann Spiecker (Erlangen/DE): The new era of in situ electron microscopy: From qualitative observations to quantitative studies on the nanoscale
- Paulina Dominiak (Warszawa/PL)
Directly after the Annual Meeting of the DGK, a workshop on methods and applications of neutrons on hot topics will take place.
The conference will be accompanied by a specialised industrial exhibition. Interested companies are requested to contact Conventus.Organiser

The annual ISIS Practical Neutron Training Course is aimed at PhD and post-doctoral researchers who have little or no experience of neutron scattering, but whose future research program aims to make use of neutron scattering techniques at ISIS.
The course runs annually for 10 days at ISIS and takes around 35 students.
We stress that this is a hand-on course using the ISIS neutron instruments aimed at complete beginners to neutron scattering.
Registration is via the form in the link below and will close on November 30th, 2017
Outline of Course
- Basic Principles (Neutron Time-of-flight, Detectors, Neutron materials and interations, Instrument Components, Neutron Scattering Theory)
- Chemistry and Materials (Powder and single crystal diffraction, Rietveld refinement (GSAS), Molecular Spectroscopy, Diffuse scattering, Non-crystalline materials scattering)
- Physics (Neutron diffraction, magnetic Rietveld refinement (Fullprof), inelastic scattering – polycrystals and single crystals, and reflectometry)
- Soft Matter (Sample preperation and deuteration, Small-angle neutron scattering, Neutron reflectometry)
- Optional Modules (Computational methods (DFT), Molecular Dynamics Simulations, Quasi-elastic Scattering, Biological SANS data reduction, Polarized reflectometry for soft matter, Strain in Materials)
The course includes accommodation at Cosener’s House in Abingdon, and travel expenses (within the UK) – and is free to participating students
Selection criteria for applications to the Neutron Training Course
The number of applications to attend the Neutron Training Course has always exceeded the number of places available on the course, and hence it has been necessary to have a selection procedure for allocating the places. One ISIS representative for each of the three modules attends a selection meeting together with one external ISIS user. The criteria used in making the selection are as follows:
- Preference is given to students funded from the UK. This is interpreted broadly and it includes University, Research Council or UK Industry funding.
- Preference is given to students at the beginning of their studies in neutron scattering.
- Preference is given to applicants who, in the judgement of the selection committee will make a major use of neutron scattering, particularly at ISIS, in their studies.
In the assessment of applications, the statements submitted by the applicant and their supervisor carry the greatest weight, and so we would encourage applicants to ensure that they submit a strong statement emphasising the significance of neutron scattering in their research. In the event of a dispute concerning the outcome of the selection procedure, an ombudsman who has no involvement in the current course will be appointed.Contact Name
