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 22nd to 24th, 2017

Registrations are open for the LNLS’ 27th Annual Users Meeting (RAU), which will take place from November 22nd to 24th, 2017, at the CNPEM campus in Campinas, SP. Those interested in participating should complete and submit the application form available on the website by June 10 (for those wishing to request financial assistance) or August 21 (all other). The Annual Users Meeting (RAU) is an event organized by the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) and 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.

October 17th to 20th, 2017

The 6th SAXS School will be held from October 17th to 20th, 2017, in the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory and is intended to post-graduate students and early career scientists interested in the learning of Small-Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS). The main objective of the School is to provide an opportunity for young scientists who develop their research in areas related to Biology, Physical Sciences, Materials Science and Chemistry, to have a contact with SAXS technique, acquiring both theoretical and experimental skills. The courses will offer an overview of SAXS theory, data reduction and analysis tools, as well as modelling techniques. It will include tutorials and hands-on experiments at the LNLS' SAXS facilities.

July 10th to 21st, 2017

The event will be held from July 10 to 21st 2017, at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), in Campinas. Promoted by the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), the School will comprehend basic concepts of synchrotron light production and properties, specific techniques based on synchrotron light and future technologies to be incorporated in the light sources field. The two-week event will be composed by theoretical and practical classes, provided by LNLS researchers

November 16th to 17th, 2016

The ENVIRO 2016 is putting on workshops that will cover present-day topics on emerging themes on agri-environmental sciences where synchrotron radiation has found groove. It will be held in 2 days and devoted to a multidisciplinary audience, namely: Rhizosphere Sciences and Biofortification of Staple Food Crops on day 1, and Air and Water Chemistry on day 2.

October 25th to 28th, 2016

PCaPAC (Personal Computers and Particle Accelerator Controls) 2016 will be held by LNLS, in Campinas, Brazil. PCaPAC traditionally focuses on low-cost control systems using PC technology for control & data acquisition systems and emerging technologies. Topics covered include: Control systems, User interfaces and Data Displays, Cyber security, Hardware technologies, Modern Data Acquisition, Management of Software projects, Databases.
