Welcome to Lund, Sweden 23-26 June 2020

Welcome to the 16th International Conference on Surface X-ray and Neutron Scattering (SXNS16)

The SXNS16 conference will be held on June 23-26th, 2020 in Lund, Sweden. Lund is 1000 years old with about 130000 inhabitants, in the province of Skåne, at the southern tip of Sweden. It is a charming cobblestoned town with many historical sights and is home to one of Scandinavia’s oldest and largest universities. At the same time, it offers small town charm and convenient access to the nearby metropolis of Malmö, just across the Øresund bridge from Copenhagen, with its large international airport.

The conference is co-organized by the European Spallation Source and Max IV Laboratory and will emphasize novel techniques for surface x-ray and neutron scattering including instrumentation and source development. Topics will include in-situ and in-operando surface studies, nanostructured surfaces and interfaces, surface and interfaces in soft matter, biological interfaces, emergent interfacial materials, and dynamics of surfaces, interfaces and nanostructures. 

We look forward to welcoming you in Lund, Sweden in 2020
