Subject: Important SAS Meetings

1. The upgraded web site for SAS 2002 appears to be open for business 


The abstract deadline is 15 March. Those of you who have forgotten how 
do LaTeX abstracts should start early.

The advance registration deadline for the meeting is 31 March, which is
the same date as the deadline for grant requests.  These and other
important facts are accessible through the link marked "Second
Announcement" in the navigation panel.

2. The XIX Congress of the International Union of Crystallography (of
which SAS 2002 is a satellite meeting) will be held in Geneva from the
6th to the 15th of August. Special events of interest to SAS people
include a workshop on "Scattering Methods for Nanoscale Structure
Characterization." This workshop is designed for people who are not now
SAS practitiooners. Encourage your more naive users or your straight-up
crystallographer friends to attend :).

A session entitled "Nanostructural Characterization Using Small-Angle
Scattering" chaired by J. S. Pedersen and I.L. Torriani will take place
on Thursday August 8th.

A session on "Soft Matter Studies by Small-Angle Scattering" chaired by
T. Zemb and P. Schurtenberger will take place on Saturday, August 10th.

Contact any member of the Commission if you have questions about the
meeting or its sessions.

The IUCr SAS Commission will hold an open meeting some time in the 
few days of the Congress.

The complete program of the Congress can be viewed by following links 
http://www.kenes.com/iucr/ or the main IUCr page at http://www.iucr.org/.

3. Now is the time to start thinking about the SAS Congress to follow the
one in 2002. Work must begin immediately if a coherent proposal is to be
presented to the assembled community in Venice. Groups of SAS 
who are interested in hosting this Congress are hereby urged to
communicate their interest to members of the SAS Commission. 
about the Commission and its members is available at

The Commission stands ready to offer whatever assistance it can to
potential organizers of these Congresses. If a SAS Congress is to receive
assistance fromthe IUCr for grants to young scientists there are a
certain number of hoops that need to be jumped through.

4. The SAS Listserver is expected to migrate onto an IUCr server quite
soon. The NIST-based listserver will continue to operate until the new
onbe is found to be fully operational. Any member of the community can
post a notice or a question to this listerver by simply e-mailing the
message to sa_scat@nist.gov.

Best Wishes to everyone for a successful New Year.
