From the Center for Quantification of Imaging Data from MAX IV (QIM), we are delighted to invite you to a two day workshop on Introduction to Volumetric Image Analysis. The workshop will take place at Copenhagen University on September 19th and 20th, 2019.
The new synchrotron radiation facility MAX IV and the coming Neutron facility ESS in Lund, will provide world-class neutron and x-rays beam for a broad range of sciences. The research school "Imaging of 3D structures” covers X-ray and neutron techniques to characterise 3D structures at all length scales, from protein structures to large materials and objects.
Join us in Lund for a lunch-to-lunch scientific symposium from Wednesday (October 9th) to Friday (October 11st), noon to noon.
Development in the area of structural biology methods combined with new computational possibilities has highlighted the importance of combining different methods in order to maximize the output.
Tillsammans gör vi de svenska investeringarna i och kring ESS och Max IV till en framgång för hela landet. Vinnova tillsammans med Vetenskapsrådet och Tillväxtverket bjuder härmed in för att diskutera utveckling och användning av ESS och Max IV. Vi arbetar utifrån myndigheternas regeringsuppdrag för att tillse Sveriges behov samt resonerar kring hur vi placerar svenska bidrag till ESS i ett europeiskt sammanhang.
Workshopen riktar sig till dig som arbetar inom akademi, näringsliv eller offentlig sektor med intresse för ESS och/eller Max IV.

Using neutrons in Archaeology, Geology and Cultural Heritage Studies: Neutron Imaging, Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis and Gamma Scan. Registration DEADLINE - June 1st
Lund Institute for advanced Neutron and X-Ray Science (LINXS) is planning a series of “tryout workshops”. The main idea is to give the opportunity to scientists in geology, archaeology and cultural heritage studies to bring their own samples and test different methods, types of radiation and instruments, before a full beam time proposal is written. Also, this would give scholars from different fields a possibility to meet, discuss and learn more about techniques soon available in Lund.
