JCNS Workshop 2015: Neutron Scattering on Nano-Structured Soft Matter: Synthetic- and Bio-Materials

In the tradition of the annual international JCNS workshops the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) and the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) will jointly organize the workshop in 2015.

Neutrons are a key probe providing deep insight into the structure and dynamics and thus in the functioning of synthetic and living soft matter. The workshop will discuss the current status, future trends and opportunities of neutron scattering also in combination with simulations.

The topics addressed are:
• Functional Polymers
• Soft Matter out of Equilibrium
• Nano-Composites and Confinement
• Nanostructured Complex Fluids
• Membranes and Proteins
• Soft Matter Materials for Energy Devices

All topics will be covered by distinguished invited speakers.

Confirmed invited speakers:
• Arantxa Arbe (DIPC)
• Lise Arleth (University of Copenhagen)
• Deborah Berti (University of Florence)
• Joao Cabral (Imperial College London)
• Stefan Egelhaaf (University of Düsseldorf)
• Hitoshi Endo (Japan Atomic Energy Agency)
• Thomas Hellweg (University of Bielefeld)
• John Katsaras (Oak Ridge National Laboratory)
• Reidar Lund (University of Oslo)
• Angel J. Moreno (DIPC)
• Kell Mortensen (University of Copenhagen)
• Peter Müller-Buschbaum (TUM)
• Julian Oberdisse (Université Montpellier 2)
• Andrew Parnell (University of Sheffield)
• Wolfgang Paul (University of Halle)
• Wim Pyckhout-Hintzen (JCNS)
• Frank Schreiber (University of Tübingen)
• Peter Schurtenberger (Lund University)
• Sebastian Seiffert (HZB)
• Mitsuhiro Shibayama (University of Tokyo)
• Karen Winey (University of Pennsylvania)

In this context oral as well as poster contributions on synthetic as well as on bio-materials are welcome.
