Deutsche Neutronenstreutagung 2024

Neutron science of today and tomorrow – neutron sources and their impact on material research

The German Conference on Neutron Scattering 2024 will take place in Aachen, Germany, on 16th - 18th September 2024 (lunch-to-lunch) and offers a forum for the presentation and fruitful discussion of recent results and advances in the field of neutron scattering and material research using neutrons.

Please note:
The Abstract Deadline has now been extended to 15 June 2024!

The DN2024 is organized on behalf of the German Committee for Research with Neutrons (KFN) by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS), Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Covering the breadth of neutron science from magnetism, via soft matter to proteins, microsymposia will further focus on the current topics of “energy materials“ and “materials characterization”, as well as “high brilliance compact accelerator neutron sources”. Recent instrumental developments are additionally covered.

At the end of the conference, a guided tour to the test stand of the High Brilliance neutron Source (HBS) at Forschungszentrum Jülich will be offered alongside with dedicated talks at JCNS on the technological advances and perspectives of a German HBS.

Satellite Workshop: Neutron Imaging Data Analysis, 19.09.-20.09.2024, Aachen

As a satellite to DN2024, MLZ is organizing a 1.5-day training workshop on "Neutron imaging data analysis” from 19.09. – 20.09.24. This workshop is intended to train scientists in the treatment of neutron (and X-ray) imaging data using popular software such as ImageJ, MuhRec, KipTool and VGStudio Max. The lectures and practical sessions with neutron data examples will provide the essential tools necessary for the efficient use of the software at a beginner’s level. The workshop is free of charge and intended for students and scientists working with neutron imaging. It is limited to 20 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants are expected to bring laptops, notebooks, and pens.
