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.
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.
July 11th to 22nd, 2022
The “Ricardo Rodrigues” Synchrotron Light School (ER2LS) seeks to expand the training of the current community of users, in addition to boosting the education and preparation of new users, potentially able to use synchrotron light techniques in their research areas. More information at the website.
July 25th to 29th, 2022
ESPEM offers teachers immersion in frontier research and development atmosphere at CNPEM. More information will be released soon.
September 11th to 16th, 2022

The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), part of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), will host the 18th edition of the International Small Angle Scattering Conference (SAS2022) from September 11 to 16, 2022.

SAS is a triennial conference which aims bringing together the worldwide small angle scatterers experts to share their experience. The event consists of plenary lectures with internationally recognized SAS experts, several parallel sessions of seminars on selected topics covering diverse scientific fields such as structural biology, polymer science, catalysis, instrumentation, modelling, among others.

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.
March 21st to 24th, 2016

The Short Course on X-ray Nanoprobe and Coherence at Synchrotron Light Sources will be held at the LNLS, between March 21st and 24th, 2016. The two-day Short Course on X-ray Coherence and Nanoprobe Techniques will deliver six hours of lectures on x-ray optics, nanoprobe and coherence techniques, covering from soft to hard x-rays beamlines. It aims at an audience of PhD students, post-docs, engineers and scientists interested in the field of producing and using x-rays nanoprobes and coherence properties.

November 6th, 2015

Following the publication of FAPESP/Finep call for proposals, which supports the development of technological demands related to the Sirius Project, LNLS will promote the roundtable Parcerias Sirius. The event aims to present 13 challenges proposed by LNLS for the development and construction of the new lightsource to companies from São Paulo State.

October 28th to 30th, 2015

The SAXS Workbench, the 3rd training school for SAXS beginners, will be held at the LNLS in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, between October 28th and 30th, 2015. The main idea of this training is to help and build up the user community at SAXS1 and SAXS2 beamlines at the LNLS. The SAXS group will offer comprehensive hands-on training in synchrotron data collection and analysis for the first time synchrotron users.

September 16th to 17th, 2015

The LNLS 25th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) will take place from September 16th to 17th, 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.

September 12th to 15th, 2015

The 2015 IUCr High-Pressure Workshop will be held from September 12th to 15th at the CNPEM campus. The primary focus of the meeting will be recent scientific advances in high pressure techniques. Presentations will cover a variety of subjects in and related to high-pressure crystallography, including crystal structures, phase transitions and their kinetics, new materials synthesis, Earth and planetary science, soft and biological matter, physical and chemical properties, theory and computation, as well as technique developments for high-pressure studies at synchrotron, neutron and laboratory-based facilities.
