Event Name

AOCNS2015. 2nd Asia-Oceania Conference on Neutron Scattering

Start Date 19th Jul 2015
End Date 23rd Jul 2015

The 1st AOCNS in Tsukuba, Japan, in 2011 was a great success and established this as the flagship series of neutron scattering meetings in the region.

This meeting will provide physicists, chemists, biologists, engineers, geologists, materials scientists and others the opportunity to discuss to share and discuss their research findings as well as the latest developments in neutron scattering techniques. AOCNS is also the leading forum in which delegates can participate in shaping the future directions of neutron scattering science and facilities in Asia-Oceania.

About the Conference

Who should attend?

Those who use (or would like to use) neutron scattering facilities in the Asia-Oceania region.

  • Neutron scattering professionals, researchers and students
  • University, government lab and industry based
  • Physicists, chemists, biologists, earth scientists, engineers and related disciplines

Why should they attend?

  • Neutron scattering encompasses a set of unique and powerful set of tools for the study of molecules and materials. They are crucial to the development of fields as diverse as energy storage, structural biology, materials engineering, magnetism and electronics.
  • The Asia-Oceania region is a world leader in neutron scattering. Among its many facilities, our region boasts the world's newest and most powerful spallation neutron source (J-PARC in Japan) and its newest major reactor neutron source (OPAL in Australia), with the next generation nearing completion (CSNS and CARR in China).
  • These neutron scattering facilities are the biggest and most expensive pieces of research infrastructure in most of the countries that operate them.
  • The quadrennial AOCNS meeting is the flagship neutron scattering meeting in our region, on an equal footing with the ACNS (American Conference on Neutron Scattering) and ECNS (European Conference Neutron Scattering).
  • The meeting will bring together physicists, chemists, biologists, earth scientists and engineers together with specialist facilities-based neutron scatterers from throughout the Asia-Oceania region and beyond.
