Please note the following sessions of relevance to SAS:
1.2.2    Surface & Interface: in-situ & Real-time Studies by GISAXS

Organizers:  Zhong Zhang, Darren Dunphy

GISAXS greatly enhances the sensitivity of surface x-ray scattering,
enabling the in situ study of real time processes such as polymer
annealing or self-assembly under ambient conditions in films as thin
as a few nm. This session will highlight recent research using GISAXS
and related techniques (including GIWAXS), emphasizing time resolved
studies, with submissions from all areas of physics, chemistry,
materials science, and biology encouraged.
3.2.5          Chemistry and Biology with Novel Scattering Techniques

Organizers:  Nick Sauter, Jacob Urquidi

Innovative application of new techniques provides new opportunities
for biological and chemical investigation. The session will include
new results in XFEL biology, solution scattering, grazing-incidence
SAXS/WAXS, resonant soft X-ray scattering, and X-ray photon
correlation spectroscopy.
4.1.4          New Algorithms in SAXS/WAXS

Organizers:  Lee Makowski, Marc Allaire, Jan Ilavsky

The session will showcase advances in algorithms & analysis tools for
SAXS and WAXS data. We solicit talks on theoretical advances in
modeling methods and algorithms. Further, in recognition of importance
of the tools for user community in large, we strongly encourage
submissions about new/existing models/algorithms implementation in
SAXS/WAXS analysis/modeling software.
4.2.4          SAXS with Biomolecular Mixtures

Organizers:  Srinivas Chakravarthy, Javier Perez, Emre Brookes

In order to obtain reliable structural information from SAXS data, it
is crucial to ensure monodispersity of the sample. However, with the
increasing complexity of samples being studied, it is often
challenging to ensure this with generic biochemical techniques. This
session will highlight strategies designed to cope with polydispersity
issues inherent in mixtures, software tools to analyze these data, and
biological results enabled.
Additional interesting sessions are available at
We hope to see you in Albuquerque!
