The first ANSTO User Meeting provides a unique forum for members of the Australian Synchrotron and Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering communities, as well as users of ANSTO’s Centre for Accelerator Science facility, to come together and showcase their cutting-edge research.
This user-led meeting is organised by members of the Australian Synchrotron User Advisory Committee (AS UAC) and the Australian Neutron Beamline Users Group (ANBUG). Abstract submission is now open and will close 6th October.
It will be held at the National Centre for Synchrotron Science in Melbourne.
The 9th AONSA Neutron School/The 2nd Neutron and Muon School is aimed at post-graduate students and early-career researchers who are interested in, but have limited or no experience with neutron and muon beam based techniques.
The School will be held at the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) of J-PARC. J-PARC is one of Japan’s flagship research facilities.
The School will consist of introductory lectures on neutron and muon science and the application of neutron and muon beams in research. It will also include hands-on experience using the MLF instruments and instruction in data analysis.
The powder diffraction teams from the Australian Synchrotron and OPAL are hosting a 3 day powder diffraction data analysis workshop for beginners aimed at post-graduate students and early career researchers.
Lectures and tutorials will be presented by the AS beamline team, Dr Helen Maynard-Casely (ACNS, ANSTO), Dr. Nathan Webster (CSIRO) and Dr Matthew Rowles (Curtin University)
The workshop will be held 4-6th September 2017 at the Australian Synchrotron, 800 Blackburn Rd, Clayton, Victoria.
Lectures and tutorials will be presented. A preliminary programme is available here.
We are pleased to announce the Call for Applications for AONSA Young Research Fellowship (YRF) 2018. This is the fourth round of the AONSA YRF after the very successful launching of AONSA YRF 2015, the following 2016 and 2017.
The deadline is July 31st this year.
We emphasized that “Applicants need to communicate with the contact person before submitting application form.” this year.
Please distribute this your colleagues and encourage talented young
scientists to apply for the Fellowship (These will be posted on AONSA
homepage as well). Your help to attract talented young scientists
into the Program is essential to make the AONSA YRF 2018 successful. All
your efforts for this purpose will be greatly appreciated.
I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Hosting
Facility Directors of J-PARC, ANSTO and HANARO for their continuing
strong support for this fellowship (which is one of major activities of AONSA and a very important investment for the future of neutron science in Asia-Oceania region.
The 9th Australasian Congress on Applied Mechanics (http://acam9.com.au) which will be held on 27-29 November 2017 at UNSW Australia. This is an Engineers Australia sponsored international conference organised by The National Committee on Applied Mechanics. The Congress aims to provide an international forum for researchers, industry practitioners, engineers and postgraduate scholars to promote, exchange and disseminate recent findings on contemporary and wide-ranging topics in Applied Mechanics.
The program of ACAM9 will explore several themes:
Advanced Materials and Structures
Dynamics and Vibration
Fibre Reinforced Composites
Fatigue, Fracture and Failure Analysis of Structures
Mechanics of Geomaterials and Concrete
Multi-functional Structures and Materials
Structural Health Monitoring and Structural Optimization
We are happy to announce Neutron Diffraction and the Nanoscale 2017 (NanoDif 2017), a meeting that will be held in Daejeon (Republic of Korea), July 6-7, 2017 as a satellite of the International Conference on Neutron Scattering, ICNS 2017 to be held in Daejeon, July 9-13, 2017.
The aim of this cross-disciplinary meeting is to review and discuss the state-of-the-art in neutron diffraction at the nanoscale and to bring together researchers from a variety of scientific disciplines including soft matter, materials science, and biology.
This issue includes the announcement of our own Jackie Knobloch as an AONSA Young Research Fellow for 2015, the previously announced award of the AONSA prize to John White, and reports from facilities and conferences around the region.
