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.
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.

September 2nd, 2015

The 1st Brazilian workshop on Synchrotron Radiation Circular Dichroism Applied to Biological Systems: Present Applications and Future Perspectives (SRCD 2015), which will be held by the LNLS in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, on September 2nd, 2015. This one-day workshop will explore the technique of synchrotron radiation circular dichroism (SRCD) spectroscopy, and discuss the possible inclusion of it as a new technique being developed at the LNLS.  This would be a unique facility in the Americas and the Southern hemisphere, following the success of many widely-used SRCD beamlines existing in Europe and Asia.

June 13th to 24th, 2015
SyncLight 2015 – São Paulo School of Advanced Sciences (ESPCA) on Recent Developments in Synchrotron Radiation

SyncLight 2015, the São Paulo School of Advanced Sciences (ESPCA) on Recent Developments in Synchrotron Radiation, will be held at the LNLS in Campinas, Brazil, between July 13th and 24th, 2015. The main goal of the SyncLight 2015 is to show to young researchers (MSc, PhD and Post-doc fellows) what synchrotron light offers in the form of new tools for their research. We intend to show that there are numerous new possibilities that appeared in the last decade, particularly those exploring bright nanometer size x-ray beams and coherence.

September 22nd to 24th, 2014

The Latin American Summit Meeting on Biological Crystallography and Complementary Methods, held between September 22nd and 24th, 2014, was the largest Latin American event in the official program of the International Year of Crystallography (IYCr2014). Promoted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr), the event brought together leading international scientists and decision makers in Science and Technology around the theme of Structural Molecular Biology. The event was attended by the Nobel laureate, Ada Yonath.
