Oxford, England

Description

The 22nd meeting of the International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources (ICANS XXII) will be held on the 27th -31st March 2017 in Oxford, England.

The abstract submission deadline is 30 November 2016.

ICANS is an informal network of laboratories whose scientists and engineers are involved in developing pulsed neutron sources and accelerator based spallation neutron sources. The collaboration was founded in 1977 as a forum to promote discussions and collaborative work, and to share information on three main topics: accelerators, targets and moderators, and instruments.

After 24 years, the meeting returns to the UK and will be hosted by the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source at the Said Business School, University of Oxford with accommodation at St Anne’s College.

In addition to the core areas of accelerators, target and instrumentation, other key areas such as sample environment, data analysis and computing, polarisation, detectors, shielding and neutronics will be discussed. It is the principal goal of ICANS to promote and facilitate informal discussions and as such, the meeting will comprise several workshop sessions.

Key dates

  • Abstract submission deadline: 30 November 2016
  • Early registration deadline: 31 January 2017
  • Registration deadline: 17 March 2017
  • Paper submission deadline: 27 March 2017

Description

International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources

ICANS is a network of laboratories whose scientists are involved in developing pulsed neutron sources and accelerator based spallation neutron sources.

Brief History of ICANS

The first ICANS meetings was held in 1977 at Argonne National Laboratory to formulate the goals and structure of the Collaboration. There have been twenty major ICANS meetings up to 2012. The next ICANS meeting, the 21st, will be held at J-PARC.

April
08. April 2010 - 12. April 2010 International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources (ICANS-XIX)
08. April 2010 - 12. April 2010 International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources (ICANS-XIX)Location

Grindelwald, Switzerland

Description
ICANS, dating back to 1977, is an informal network of more than 15 institutions worldwide, providing a forum for scientists and engineers to study and exchange information on the progress and developments in conjunction with accelerator- and reactor-based neutron sources. The attention of the Collaboration is on the subjects of accelerator development, source (target) and moderator development, and neutron scattering instrumentation techniques.

Since the last meeting in Dongguan, China, in 2007 significant progress was made at various neutron science facilities, in particular at SNS, Oak Ridge, J-PARC, Tokai and the ISIS Second Target Station has been brought online. Likewise, the ESS site decision has been taken. It is the tradition of ICANS to cooperate and support each other, and by continuing this series we hope to advance neutron science and to further strengthen cooperation between and among the participating laboratories.

Besides the traditionally represented high-power and large-scale facilities, ICANS XIX in particular would like to encourage smaller sources to submit contributions on their development and perspectives. As well, contributions from developing countries are very welcome.

April
25. April 2007 - 29. April 2007 International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources (ICANS-XVIII)
25. April 2007 - 29. April 2007 International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources (ICANS-XVIII)Location

Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, China

Description

The 18th Meeting of the International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources (ICANS-XVIII) shall be held from April 25-29, 2007 in Dongguan , Guangdong Province, China .

ICANS, originated from a series of discussions that took place in 1977 among Argonne National Laboratory, Los Alamos Laboratory, Rutherford Laboratory, Tohoku University and KEK, comprises an informal network oftwelve member-Laboratories worldwide. Over the past 30 years, the ICANS meetings have provided a forum for scientists and engineers all over the world to study and exchange information on the development of accelerator-based neutron science. This is the first time in its history for ICANS to be hosted in China , of which we are very proud.

China has decided to build its own neutron source facility – the Chinese Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS). Dongguan has been chosen as the site to host the facility, which is why we choose the city as the location for ICANS-XVIII. It is the tradition of ICANS to cooperate and support each other, by hosting this meeting we hope to advance neutron science and to further strengthen cooperation between and among the member laboratories.
