[SA_scat] canSAS-VIII

We are pleased to announce that the next canSAS meeting (canSAS-VIII) will be hosted by CROSS and JPARC and take place at the Ibaraki Quantum Beam Research Center (IQBRC) in Tokai, Japan from April 14 to 16, 2015.

Since the first canSAS meeting in 1998, canSAS has evolved from its original focus of common data formats, to be a forum for SAS practitioners  worldwide, both with X-rays and neutrons, to discuss and work together on whatever issues are affecting the community. Current topics include questions of uncertainties in data and analysis, quantifying and continuously improving the accuracy and reliability of data, and the need to simplify access to relevant information quickly and easily. The focus is on attempts to translate concerns and proposed solutions into action.

Aside from encouraging everyone with an interest in small angle scattering tools and issues to mark their calendar and to plan on participation, we also encourage you to email the committee about the issues you feel are of current importance. If at all possible, please propose names of people who would be good at presenting the issues or leading discussion on the topic. Self nominations are certainly encouraged!
