2016 nSoft Annual Meeting

Program Note:  For the first time this year, members can request meetings (either individually or in small numbers) with NIST staff in a particular topic of interest. Want to have some training in Small Angle Neutron Scattering? What is going on in biomanufacturing these days? What does NIST do in additive manufacturing? These are all good questions, but they are not necessarily a focus of a presentation during the annual meeting. This 90 minute slot can be used for a variety of end goals. Use it for training in a particular technique, or use it to engage in a discussion with potential or current collaborators, or use it to learn about a technique you were always curious about but never had the time to look into. Use it to bring a co-worker into the discussion. Requests can be forwarded to Ron Jones, and he will arrange everything.

Agenda:

8:30        Arrival at front gate, check-in. Light breakfast provided at NCNR.

9:00        Introductory remarks – Ron Jones, nSoft Director

9:10        Welcome to NIST – TBA

10:00     -------------  Poster Session and Coffee Break  -------------------------------

10:30     Personalized meetings with NIST experts

12:00     --- Lunch at NIST Cafeteria (Shuttle Service provided) -------------------------

1:00        Tour of the NIST Center for Neutron Research – Dan Neumann, Leader, Condensed Matter Science, NIST Center for Neutron Science

1:45        Update on the NIST Flow under Extreme Environments Project – Kathleen Weigandt, NIST Center for Neutron Research

2:15        Quantum Cascade Lasers for spectroscopy of polyolefins, proteins, and more during neutron scattering measurements – Young Lee, Material Measurement Laboratory, NIST

2:45        -------------  Poster Session and Coffee Break  -------------------------------

3:30        Using simulation and modelling to extract more from complex systems – Joseph Curtis, NIST Center for Neutron Science

4:00        Looking forward – Key investments by nSoft and new developments – Ron Jones

4:30        Wrap up and discussion – Ron Jones
