nisbNeutrons in Structural Biology

Date: 7-9 June 2017

Location: ILL, ILL4 Amphitheatre Chadwick, 71 avenue des Martyrs - 38000 Grenoble - France

Deadline for abstract submission: 21 April, 2017

Neutrons have become an increasingly powerful and sophisticated tool in structural biology in the recent years. In particular, over the last decade, improvements in sources, instrumentation and sample preparation have revolutionized the scope of neutron scattering studies of biological systems. As in all areas of modern structural biology there is now strong emphasis on interdisciplinarity with neutrons occupying a central role alongside the other major techniques including X-rays, NMR, EM… Over the years the focus of this meeting has shifted away from technical aspects relating directly to the development of neutron techniques towards a more science driven event where neutrons provide crucial information alongside the other techniques available.This 2017 edition will focus on highlighting recent results in fundamental biology, as well as considering the future of the field and the implications for the type of science that can be considered as well as for the instruments required. This meeting typically gathers mixture of researchers some of whom are experienced in the field of neutron scattering with others whose work may benefit from these approaches.



The International Conference on Neutron Scattering 2017 (ICNS2017) will be held July 9 - 13, 2017 at Daejeon Convention Center, Daejeon, South Korea.

ICNS2017 will be the latest and largest international platform for sharing and exchanging recent advances in neutron scattering science.

The 5th Design and Engineering of Neutron Instruments Meeting will be held in Sydney, Australia, on 29 November through to 1 December 2017.

Following on for earlier events in Germany, Hungary, Sweden and the USA this meeting is the primary international meeting for scientists, engineers and technicians involved in designing, building, operating, upgrading and maintaining neutron beam instruments.
