Welcome to Lund, Sweden

SXNS16 will now be online only!

11th to 14th January 2022.

Unfortunately, due to the escalating travel restrictions due to the pandemic and the emergence of the Omicron variant, coupled with an increasing number of withdrawals by attendees, we have made the decision to abandon our plans for a physical meeting in January.

We are obviously very disappointed with this development and apologize for the lateness of this notification. As we do not really have any choices for rearrangement, we have decided to run the conference fully online.

We are planning to use Gathertown as a virtual venue. This will allow for a virtual poster session and exhibition, so in principle we can still offer a simulated experience analogous to the physical meeting. The meeting will therefore proceed on the same dates with approximately the same schedule… details will follow shortly.

The registration fees will be 10% of the original fee:

  • Full registration 625 SEK (inc VAT)
  • Students 412 SEK (inc VAT)

By default, we will be refunding all registration at the level of 90%. However, if you would like to withdraw your participation please let us know by 8th Dec and we will pay a full refund.

All refunds will take at least 10 days to process.

Registration is now open until 3rd January.

Importantly – a registration will only be considered valid if the fee is paid by 3rd January.

Abstract submission has reopend until 8th December

Posters will need to be emailed to us by 17th December, please see the poster format instructions

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

The SXNS16 conference will be held online… details to follow shortly.

The conference is co-organized by the European Spallation Source and
MAX IV Laboratory and supported by the Lund Institute of Advanced Neutron and X-ray Science (LINXS). It 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.

Confirmed speakers include: Robert Feidenhans’l, Robert Thomas and Sunil Sinha
