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.
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.

September 11th to 16th, 2022

The XVIII International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (SAS 2022) will be hosted by the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM), from September 11th to 16th, 2022, 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. SAS 2022 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.

November 6th to 9th, 2018

The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory 28th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) will take place from November 6th to 9th, 2018, at the campus of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), in Campinas, SP. In addition to the standard program, the 28th RAU includes 3 different satellite meetings. The Annual Users Meeting (RAU) brings together researchers using the infrastructure of the LNLS to conduct their research in order to evaluate scientific results and discuss issues relevant to the development of the institution.

September 24th to 26th, 2018

The Workshops in Power Converters for Particle Accelerators (POCPA) are organized every two years and are devoted to the specific field of Power Converters for Particle Accelerators. It aims to group specialists in this field from the particle accelerator laboratories worldwide for a two-day meeting and to organize a true round-table on selected topics, as well as status reports from laboratories. The 6th POCPA Workshop, which will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first edition, will be hosted by Brazilian Sincrotron Light Laboratoy (LNLS), from September 24th to 26th, 2018. In this meeting, the main topic will be “Efficiency and Integration with Other Systems.

August 30th to 31st, 2018

The Workshop on Advanced Nanomagnetism Characterization will be held on August 30th and 31st, 2018, at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas, São Paulo. The event will bring together specialists on advanced characterization techniques for obtaining information about magnetism at the nanoscale using a wide variety of probes, such as neutrons, electromagnetic radiation, ions and others. The workshop is also aimed at techniques that could complement the magnetic information, such as the characterization of crystalline and electronic structure. This is a satellite workshop to the 16th International Conference on Molecule-based Magnets.

July 10th to 20th, 2018

The second edition of the Brazilian Synchrotron School: "Fundaments and Applications" will take place between July 10th and 20th, 2018, at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) in Campinas, SP. The School seeks to increase the capabilities of the current LNLS user community, as well as to promote the training of new users, which have the potential to use synchrotron light techniques in their research areas. The two-week event will be composed by theoretical and practical classes, lectured by LNLS researchers. 

March 7th to 8th, 2018

The 1st Sirius Scientific Computing Workshop – S²C will be held in March 7-8, 2018, at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory and is intended to discuss the mathematical and computational aspects related to image processing and their distributed computing, currently in use at our facility. The main objective of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for the community to share their research in areas related to image reconstruction, segmentation, and high-performance computing, among other image processing techniques. The workshop will offer an overview of the main theory with a hands-on tutorial on several numerical algorithms.
