By now I'm sure you are aware of the inaugural American Conference on 
Neutron Scattering being held in Knoxville TN in June this year.  The 
program is shaping up quite nicely and we are looking forward to an 
exciting meeting.

Two points that I'd like to bring to your attention:

1) the deadline for abstract submission which was today March 25, has 
been extended till Thursday March 28 due to the APS being last week.

2) There is money available for travel support for students, postdocs and 
young faculty.  Application should be made via the website at 
www.sns.gov/acns.  It is not necessary to give a presentation in order to 
receive a grant particularly if the technique is new to the applicant.  
However if relevant work has been done an abstract is encouraged.

As a reminder (in case you've managed to miss the various "adverts" for 
the conference), the ACNS is being organized by the Neutron Scattering 
Society of America (NSSA), in conjunction with the SNS-HFIR User 
Group (SHUG), in response to requests from its membership.  The 
ACNS will be sponsored by all of the national neutron centers and will
highlight developments at the SNS.  We are structuring the program to
showcase recent scientific results in neutron science in a wide range of
fields, including soft condensed matter and liquids, biology, magnetism,
engineering materials, chemical spectroscopy, crystal structure, and
elementary excitations.  In addition, the conference is intended to
fulfill many of the objectives of a facility "users' meeting" but on a
national scale.  The schedule and other useful information can be found 
at the conference web site at:  http://www.sns.gov/acns
