The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) hosts and organizes conferences and other national and international scientific events that bring together researchers and students to discuss the latest developments related to synchrotron light techniques as well as accelerator physics and engineering. LNLS also regularly organizes schools and workshops aiming to popularize synchrotron techniques and to train users, new and regular, in obtaining, processing and analyzing experimental data. Check out the upcoming LNLS events below.


September 13th to 17th, 2020

International Beam Instrumentation Conference (IBIC) 2020

The International Beam Instrumentation Conference (IBIC) is dedicated to exploring the physics and engineering challenges is diagnostics and measurement techniques of particle accelerator beams. Many collaborations are established and strengthened during the conference as this is the main event in the area and is held annually, with the venues alternating between Asia, Europe and the Americas.

The conference program includes tutorials, round tables and guest lectures, as well as poster sessions. An industrial exhibition takes place throughout the conference and a visit to the host institute takes place on the last day of the event. All physics and engineering professionals working with diagnosis and instrumentation on particle accelerators are part of the target audience of the event.


May 23rd to 28th, 2021

International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC) 2021

IPAC (International Particle Accelerator Conference) is a large annual conference in the field of particle accelerators. Brazil was chosen for the first time, to host the 12th edition of the event, scheduled for 2021 and the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory will be its local organizer.

The conference brings together about 1,200 scientists accelerators, engineers, students and entrepreneurs from more than 30 countries to discuss the latest advances in the field of particle accelerators, synchrotron light sources, free electron laser, and associated instrumentation. The conference also includes the participation of about 100 exhibitors of equipment and products related to the field, and special meetings of funding agencies to science, workshops with specific topics, and other satellite events.


September 13th to 18th, 2021

XVIII International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (SAS 2021)

The XVIII International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (SAS 2021) will be hosted by the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM), from September 13th to 18th, 2021, in Campinas, São Paulo. The 4th generation synchrotron light source, Sirius, will offer new possibilities on small angle scattering at its firsts years of operation. SAS2021 will promote a stronger scientific interaction among researchers from all over the world, specially the Brazilian community, and improve the relationship between scientific production and industry.
