SAS2018 Conference

XVII International Small Angle Scattering Conference (SAS2018)

The Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory will host the XVII International Small Angle Scattering Conference (SAS2018) at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, Traverse City, Michigan, in October 7-12, 2018.

We are excited to host the XVII International Small Angle Scattering Conference.

The United States has hosted this international conference three times (Syracuse, 1965; Gatlinburg, 1977; Brookhaven National Laboratory, 1999). Since the last conference in this series to be held in the U.S. was 1999, it is a great time to again hold this conference in the U.S.

Coincident with major facility upgrades with renewed small-angle scattering capabilities across the U.S. (National Synchrotron Light Source-II, Advanced Photon Source, and Linac Coherent Light Source) either complete or well-in-progress by 2018, the SAS2018 conference offers a timely opportunity to promote stronger scientific and personal interactions.

SAS2018 will serve to showcase the progress of small-angle scattering research in North America, including the many instruments at user facilities across the continent and the rich variety of research taking place.

We expect high-level researchers from around the world involved in all aspects of small-angle scattering research will attend and draw even greater participation in these conferences by U.S. researchers.

The conference will also help to raise the visibility of the importance of small-angle scattering investigations in research and industry.

We chose Grand Traverse Resort & Spa in Traverse City, Michigan, as an ideal venue to help us promote strong interactions among the conference participants and to return this conference to a more intimate setting, in the style of a Gordon Research Conference.
