KFN newsletter from May 24, 2019

Dear neutron users,

as a first result of the ErUM-Data processes, the jointly developed recommendations of the committees were addressed in the strategy paper "Challenges and Opportunities of Digital Transformation in Fundamental Research on Universe and Matter", which was delivered to BMBF on May 2nd, 2019. You can find the full paper here:

https://www.sni-portal.de/de/Dateien/challenges-and-opportunities-of-digital-transformation-in-fundamental-research-on-universe-and-matter/view

Now the recommendations are being considered by the BMBF in the national and international context. The committees strive to deepen their successful cooperation and examine ways to make it sustainable and to achieve the practical implementations of their recommendations.

>>>Please join NFDI initiative

In parallel, KFN and MLZ committed for a consortium to allow for funding within NFDI. We see the need to align the use of neutron data within the FAIR principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, re-usable) and improve data management to be make the use of the data more efficient and convenient. In result of the discussions with KFS and the information given by DFG, KFN and KFS support an application for one joint consortium of the synchrotron and neutron communities in October 2019. We ask all interested scientists to join and support this initiative. Please contact Astrid Schneidewind at Astrid.Schneidewind@frm2.tum.de.

>>>Workshop on Digital Transformation in Fundamental Research with Photons and Neutrons

The "Challenges and Opportunities of Digital Transformation in Fundamental Research with Photons and Neutrons" meeting will be held in Hamburg on June 13 and 14. This lunch to lunch meeting is jointly organized by the KFS and KFN so that we can prepare as a community for the future and the coming funding round. We aim to bring the photon and neutron communities together and prepare for the forthcoming BMBF ErUM DATA call. In this call we expect substantial funding for the following topics

* Federated Infrastructures

* Big Data Analytics

* Research data

* User interface

* Knowledge distribution

We plan to have a series of talks and interactive discussions and would be delighted if you could join us. More details will be published soon.

>>>Walter-Hälg-Preis and Neutron Instrumentation and Innovation Award

May 31, 2019 is the deadline of the two ENSA prizes Walter-Hälg-Preis and Neutron Instrumentation and Innovation Award.

Every two years the European Neutron Scattering Association, ENSA, awards the prestigious Walter Hälg Prize to a European scientist for an outstanding programme of research in neutron scattering with a long term impact on scientific and/or technical neutron scattering applications.

The Neutron Instrumentation and Innovation Award will be awarded for the first time, namely to an early career scientist or engineer in recognition of ground-breaking contributions in neutron instrumentation or method innovation, thereby enabling advances in neutron science and technology. The inaugural award of the Neutron Instrumentation and Innovation Award will be made at a special ceremony at the ECNS 2019. European scientists as individuals or on behalf of a Division, Section or Group may submit nominations for the 2019 Neutron Instrumentation and Innovation Award of the European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA).

>>>JCNS Workshop 2019 - submit your abstract now!

Trends and Perspectives in Neutron Instrumentation: Probing Structure and Dynamics in Soft Matter

Abstracts for the JCNS Workshop 2019 can be submitted until June 15, 2019. The workshop takes place in Tutzing from October 7 to 10, 2019. The scope of the workshop is to bring together experts in neutron scattering methods with users from soft matter and biology to review techniques and provide the opportunity for the community to discuss current limitations, new capabilities, and future developments. The final registration deadline is September 1, 2019. Further information can be found at the workshop webpage

>>>Sad news from Norway: Permanent closure of the research reactor at Kjeller

In the end of April, IFE's (Institute for Energy Technology) board of directors has decided to permanently close operations at the JEEP II reactor at Kjeller. The reactor start-up had been postponed in January due to the need for extensive and costly improvements to put the reactor back into operation.

 

Mit freundlichen Grüßen, with kind regards,

Astrid Schneidewind, KFN-Vorsitzende
