ECNS-2007, the 4th European Conference on Neutron Scattering, will be held in Lund, Sweden from 25th to 29th June 2007. This meeting is organised on behalf of the European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA) by the Norwegian, Danish and Swedish Neutron Scattering Associations, and Lund University.
Neutron scattering brings together many scientific disciplines, and strong activities are now seen in diverse fields such as nanoscience, biology, material science and engineering.
Our ability to study, and s ubsequently control and develop, new materials and processes can be strongly enhanced by the unique information accessible through neutron scattering experiments. Based on the experience from the previous conferences, ECNS-2007 is expected to attract a la rge number of scientists. In particular students and postdocs - including several from Norway - will obtain important training in several topics from nanoscience due to the multidisciplinary character of the conference.
This application concerns a reque st for a moderate amount, 80000 NOK to cover a part of the the cost for organizing the conference.
