3rd AgroEnviro Workshop

The 3rd AgroEnviro Workshop to be held from 5-7 October 2022 brings together diverse scientists with interest and expertise on topics of critical importance to the sustainability of agriculture and environmental stewardship.

Promoted by the LNLS/CNPEM, the 2022 workshop will focus on rhizosphere and hyphosphere biogeochemical processes that affect soil phosphorus, carbon, and other nutrient cycling. The workshop objectives are to reveal critical gaps in mechanistic knowledge about the soil-rhizosphere-plant root system, and to enlighten the audience to ongoing and potential uses of synchrotron techniques at Sirius for scientific discoveries that help fill these knowledge gaps.

More information to be released soon.

November 7th to 11th, 2022
The meeting aims to gather researchers who use LNLS scientific instrumentation to perform cutting edge experiments in areas such as materials science, health and pharmacology, environmental science energy, biotechnology, x-ray Imaging, oil and gas, chemistry, and others. More information at the website.
June 23rd to 24th, 2022
The CEDRO beamline, dedicated to synchrotron radiation circular dichroism, is under the assembly stage at Sirius. In this second workshop edition, we will continue highlighting the important applications of SRCD and present the beamline to the community. More information will be released soon.
November 8th to 11th, 2021

Promoted fully online by the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), located at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), the 31st LNLS Annual Users Meeting (RAU) will be held from November 8 to 11, 2021.

The online meeting aims to gather around 500 researchers who use LNLS scientific instrumentation to perform cutting edge experiments in areas such as Materials Science, Health and Pharmacology, Environmental Science Energy, Biotechnology, X-ray Imaging, Oil and Gas, Chemistry, and others.

RAU is an important forum for discussion, evaluation, and presentation of proposals for the improvement of the research projects to be performed at the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, Sirius, one of the most advanced synchrotron machines in the world.

October 4th to 5th, 2021
