September 17th to 20th, 2022
The SAXS school is aimed at students and early career scientists enthusiastic to learn SAXS focusing on the scattering data analysis of biological systems, such as proteins and membranes. More information at the website.
October 3rd to 4th, 2022
International Sirius Workshop on Heterogeneous and Hierarchical Materials (H2Mat)
The H2Mat workshop will focus on applying synchrotron X-ray techniques to explore challenging heterogeneous and hierarchical materials. The event will allow attendees to present their scientific cases and also to expose their expectations of using Sirius beamlines to explore their path-breaking ideas. More information will 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.
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.

August 24th to 25th, 2016

The LNLS 26th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) will take place on August 24th and 25th, 2015, in Campinas, Brazil. RAU has the objective of encouraging debates, the exchange of experiences and the integration of the LNLS user community. It is an important forum for discussion, evaluation and presentation of proposals for the improvement of the research structures and of the scientific instrumentation available at the synchrotron light source. The meeting represents also an opportunity for the exchange of information about the research carried out at the facilities.

August 22nd to 23rd, 2016

The 5th School on X-Ray Spectroscopy Methods will be held at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, between August 22nd and 23rd, 2016, just before the LNLS Annual User’s Meeting (RAU), as a satellite event. This school will focus on the fundamentals of x-ray spectroscopy methods, data analysis and its applications. This year will be more focused on Soft X-rays.

May 2nd to 6th, 2016

The 5th SAXS school will be held between May 2nd and 6th, 2016, at the LNLS and is intended to motivated post-graduate students and early career scientists willing to learn Small-Angle X-ray Scattering. The main objective of the school is to provide an opportunity for young scientists developing their research in areas related to Biology, Physical Sciences, Materials Science and Chemistry, to have a contact with the technique, acquiring both theoretical and experimental skills. The course will offer an overview of SAXS theory, data reduction and analysis tools, as well as modelling techniques. It will include hands-on experiments at the LNLS SAXS facilities and tutorials.

May 5th to 6th, 2016

The 1st User Workshop on Coherent X-ray Imaging and Small Angle X-ray Scattering (Cateretê Workshop) will be held at the LNLS, on May 5th and 6th, 2016.  The aim of this workshop is to present and discuss the science that could be conducted at the Coherent Diffractive Imaging beamline Cateretê, one of the first experimental stations to be operational in 2019 at Sirius, the new fourth generation synchrotron currently under construction.
