Commission on Small-Angle Scattering

The Commission represent the interests of the worldwide Small-Angle Scattering community, and collaborates closely with national small-angle scattering interest groups.

 The Terms of Reference define the scope of the Commission's activities, which are detailed in the Annual and Triennial reports. In particular the Commission is responsible for coordinating Small-Angle Scattering talks and Microsymposia at the IUCr Congresses, helping organise the triennial International Conference on Small-Angle Scattering, and awarding the Guinier Prize. The Commission also acts as a coordinating body for discussion on topics of interest to the community.

The Members of the Commission represent both the breadth of small angle scattering areas-of-interest and the geographical range of the IUCr associates.
