DN2016

Objective

The German Conference on Neutron Scattering 2016 Deutsche Neutronenstreutagung DN2016 - offers a forum for the presentation and critical discussion of recent results obtained with neutron scattering and complementary techniques. The meeting will be held in Kiel from 20th to 22nd September 2016. It is organized on behalf of the German Committee for Research with Neutrons - Komitee Forschung mit Neutronen KFN - by the HZG and University of Kiel. After the conference, a CREMLIN workshop on German-Russian cooperation will take place from Sept. 22 (afternoon) to Sept. 23, 2016.

It offers the vibrant German and international neutron community an opportunity to debate topical issues in a stimulating atmosphere. Originating from "BMBF Verbundtreffen" - meetings for projects funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research - this conference series has a strong tradition of providing a forum for the discussion of collaborative research projects and future developments in the field of research with neutrons in general. Neutron scattering, by its very nature is used as a powerful probe in many different disciplines and areas, from particle and condensed matter physics through to chemistry, biology, materials sciences, engineering sciences, right up to geology and cultural heritage; the German Neutron Scattering Conference thus provides a unique chance for exploring interdisciplinary research opportunities. It also serves as a showcase for recent method and instrument developments and to inform users of new advances at neutron facilities.

The participation of young scientists is particularly welcome. Thanks to financial support from major German neutron centers, we are able to keep the conference fee as low as 50 € and to award the prestigious "Wolfram Prandl Prize" for young investigators. We encourage young academics to submit oral contributions.

The official conference language is English.
