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, 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.

September 14th to 15th, 2015

The 4th School on X-Ray Spectroscopy Methods will be held at the LNLS, in Campinas, Brazil, between September 14th and 15th. The event will happen 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 and data analysis and its applications. The first day will include introductory lectures about the theoretical and experimental aspects of hard x-ray spectroscopy, followed by one day of advanced lectures and tutorials on data analysis and examples of applications in different fields.
