Dear Colleagues

This message is about SNS user meeting. If you have registered, please 
the rest and I appologize. Otherwise I strongly encourage to attend. I 
sent out
similar annoucement last week. This is to remind you that the deadline 
for cheap hotel rate is this Friday.

The deadline for hotel bookings for the SNS workshop is Apr 28.  There 
are messages like the one below going out to various lists of interested 
potential users, not customization re polymers in this instance.  Could 
you get the instrument scientists to distribute such a message to each 
IAT (if they haven't already done something similar).  We need a big push 
this week to get rooms booked at the cheap rate  (only 40 so far!)


The purpose of this message is to inform you of the upcoming Users 
Meeting for the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) currently under 
construction at ORNL.  Have a look at either http://www.sns.gov/ 
regarding the SNS in general, or https://webworks1.cind.ornl.gov/snsreg/ 
in particular for the meeting information.  The meeting will May 22-24, 
2000 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC.  It is imperative that 
you make your hotel reservations as soon as possible. Reservations must 
be made by April 28 in order to obtain the conference rate of $118 plus 
tax for single or double occupancy.  There are limited travel funds 
available for University faculty, students and postdocs to attend.  
Please see the web site.

Neutron scattering has played a key role in development of the field of 
polymer physics and the SNS is the first new major neutron scattering 
source in the U.S. in many years.  Decisions regarding the nature and 
capabilities of the neutron scattering spectrometers planned for the 
already funded SNS High Power Target Station, and a second 
Long-Wavelength Target Station (currently in the planning stages), will 
form a major portion of the Users Meeting on the second day!  If you wish 
to have input into these decisions, it is important to become involved 
NOW.  More information on the planned capabilities of the instruments is 
being posted on the web site: http://www.sns.anl.gov as it becomes 
available.  There is some information about the planned SANS and 
reflectometer instruments.

A tentative agenda for the meeting is given below:
Sunday Evening 5/21/00  Registration

Monday 5/22/00
Morning:  Introductory Talks and Status of the SNS
Afternoon:  Neutron Science Talks
