Common conferences in the area of research with synchrotron radiation, neutrons and ion beams at large facilities
regularly take place since 2006. They tie up to earlier BMBF status seminars (Helgoland 1986, Kloster Seeon 1997).
The conferences are initiated by the German Committee "Condensed Matter Research at Large Facilities"
the umbrella organisation of the Committees for Research with Neutrons
and Nuclear Sonds and Ion Beams
The SNI-conferences offer the framework for a wide range of topics and for interdisciplinary networking.
