Please reserve June 28, 1-2:30pm (Eastern Standard Time), for a special meeting of CINS to discuss the future of Canadian neutron scattering, and how you can be involved immediately to help forge that future.
At this meeting, more details on the Canadian Neutron Initiative (CNI) will be presented, including its vision, scope, and progress with government.
The CNI is a working group of research leaders formed to establish a new framework for leadership, management and funding of Canada’s capacity for materials research with neutron beams, building on existing national and international resources, following the shutdown of the NRU reactor and expiry of Canada’s participation in the Spallation Neutron Source – both in 2018.
The meeting will take place as an online meeting using your computer and telephone.
Instructions to participate will be provided in an email from AnyMeeting.com.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not receive the instructions.
The 2017 CINS Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be at Brock University on October 13 & 14. Continue reading 2017 Annual Meeting – Save the date!
The 2017 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) and Gordon Research Symposium (GRS) on Neutron Scattering will be held August 5-6 (GRS) and August (6-10) at the Hong Kong University for Science and Technology. The GRC features a single plenary session format, in the Gordon Conference tradition, that focuses on in-depth discussion between the attendees, invited speakers and discussion leaders. The GRS is organized for and by graduate students and postdocs, and includes both sessions with a scientific focus as well as sessions dedicated to professional development and issues of relevance to early career scientists. This will be the inaugural GRS on Neutron Scattering, but we are hoping to make it a regular part of the overall GRC Neutron Scattering program in years to come.
The GRC program and poster are attached to this mailing, as is the poster for the GRS. Registration for both the 2017 GRC and GRS in neutron scattering are now open. As you’ll see the program is wide ranging and features an excellent slate of international speakers, and ample time for in depth and small group discussions. Note that there will be contributed poster sessions and four contributed talks in the final program (these are not included in the attached program), drawn from the poster contributions of the registered attendees.
We have received generous international sponsorship and we are pleased to be able to offer some support to partially cover the costs of registration and accommodation – initially up to $500US with a preference for supporting qualified young neutron scientists.
You can apply by going to the following websites and following the instructions for attendees:

2017 GRS on Neutron Scattering: https://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?id=17491
Looking forward to seeing many of you in Hong Kong in August for what we are sure will be very exciting GRC and GRS in Neutron Scattering!

The International Conference on Neutron Scattering will be held on July 9-13, 2017 in Daejeon, South Korea. The abstract deadline is February 17.
The 13th Canadian Neutron Scattering Summer School will be held at Chalk River Laboratories on May 15-19, 2017.
The school is aimed at graduate students and post-docs with backgrounds in physics, chemistry, or materials science who may have no prior knowledge of how to use neutron beams to study materials.
For more information, refer to the 2017 summer school page.
The Annual General Meeting will be hosted by McMaster University on October 14 – 15, 2016. The meeting will take place in the Skylight Room of the Commons Building.
