LRP 2022: Call For Expressions of Interest

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the call for expressions of interest (EOI) for the Canadian Institute for Neutron Scattering Long Range Plan for 2022-2050 (LRP2022). EOIs are due January 31th, 2022, via

The LRP2022 will review the Canadian landscape of neutron beams for materials research, and will produce a list of recommended priorities for the decades to come. The CINS LRP2022 will provide single vision and unified voice for the highest priority projects in materials research using neutron beams in Canada to 2050.

We have launched a solicitation for EOIs to inform the LRP process. Chair’s of discipline specific sub-committees will review the EOIs and follow-up workshops will be held to refine the key neutron beam related needs for the different sub-committees to be synthesized into the LRP document.

Expressions of interest: An expression of interest (EOI) must be submitted in advance of the workshops. Please follow the template provided here. A EOI will be most effective and useful if it concisely summaries the idea, need or issue that the sub-committee chairs should be considering for prioritization.

Scope of EOIs: Topics may include (but are not limited to):
* instrumental needs
* foreign engagement
* auxiliary support
* science programs, science topics and science themes
* instrument design and development
* data analysis, data management and data storage
* funding issues (e.g. NSERC, CFI, funding policy for major research facilities)
* outreach, education and teaching
* training, careers, demographics and professional development
* equity, diversity and inclusion

* Quantum Materials
* Soft Matter
* Energy Materials
* Imaging
* Industry

Authorship: Each EOI must have a designated author for contact purposes. Anonymous submissions will not be considered.
