09. November 2015 - 13. November 2015 Fifth Annual Niels Bohr International Academy Workshop-School on ESS Science: Condensed Matter Theory and Advanced Software

Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen


The fifth workshop and school on ESS Science will focus on the use of sophisticated data analysis methods along with extensive computational modeling to extract as much information as possible from the experimental observations and thereby gain profound scientific insights from scattering experiments.

The future is now. New intense neutron sources and advanced instrumentation will revolutionize the use of neutrons for a wide range of investigations in materials, macromolecules, surface phenomena, condensed matter, and many other systems of significant interest. Both the improved quality of the data collected and the increasing complexity of the materials under study pose a challenge for the optimum extraction of information from these experiments. To reliably and fully interpret the data will require the use of advanced software in data analysis, modeling and close collaboration between experimentalists and theoreticians.

The goal of this workshop-school is to describe the manner in which static and dynamic processes in materials give rise to their neutron scattering profiles. The school will demonstrate how current data treatment and computational analysis can effectively be used to improve the scientific understanding derived from data obtained on current and next generation of neutron scattering instruments.
