The organising committee are keen to welcome you to the 2nd ANSTO Small-Angle Scattering Workshop.

Jointly hosted by the SAXS/WAXS and BioSAXS groups at the Australian Synchrotron and the SANS group at the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering. Due to the impacts of COVID, it is being run entirely as a virtual meeting for the second time around.

This has its drawbacks, but it also presents a range of new opportunities, including a diverse range of national and international speakers, and the potential to reach a much wider audience. 

Places are limited for the practical session to 40 participants. 

Final program, all times quoted are Australian Eastern Summer Time (AEST)



Time Session
10:00am - 1:00pm Morning Session
1:00pm - 2:00pm Lunch
2:00pm - 3:00pm Afternoon Session
3:00pm - 3:30pm Coffee Break
3:30pm - 5:00pm Practical Session (limited to 40 participants)

This workshop is aimed at honours and PhD students, as well as early-career researchers, who have used, or are planning to use, ANSTO small-angle scattering instrumentation for their research. The material will cover theoretical and practical aspects of small-angle scattering, including: scattering theory, data collection, data processing, data analysis and modelling, applying for beam time, and the application of small-angle scattering to specialised areas of research.

Those selected to participate in the practical analysis sessions of the course will be involved in the analysis and modelling of small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering data. As the experience and research interests of the participants is diverse, the practical sessions may not appear entirely relevant to everyone, however, the intent is to explore different types of small-angle scattering data, to see what kind of information can be extracted from small-angle scattering data, and to gain familiarity with common modelling packages.
