There is an upcoming conference in the Japanese city of Yokohama, mere minutes from Tokyo. At that materials research society conference, one particularly fine international session is dedicated to small-angle scattering (SAS). Last year, this SAS session was small but with a good atmosphere and many interesting talks. This year, amongst others, dr. Ilavsky from APS will be giving a talk on data analysis techniques for small-angle scattering. If last year offers grounds for foresight, the session is convivial, the dinner afterwards excellent, and the weather fantastic in a beautiful town (for Japanese standards).
So, If you have the time, do drop by this session, join the talks and share your knowledge! More information and registration opportunities can be found here: http://mrs-j.com/main/?q=en/2011es3&destination=node%2F116
