17. September 2014 - 19. September 2014 DENIM workshop (Design and Engineering of Neutron Instruments Meeting)

Ismaning, Germany


First held in 2012, the annual Design and Engineering of Neutron Instruments Meeting (DENIM) has already established itself as a regular engineering workshop in the field of neutron scattering instruments.

The meeting offers engineers from all over the world the chance to network with colleagues from other neutron scattering centres to foster the exchange of ideas and experiences. Engineers from ISIS (UK), Delft University (The Netherlands), CSNS (China), ESS (Sweden), ANSTO (Australia), NIST (USA), SNS (USA), PSI (Switzerland), Forschungszentrum Jülich (Germany) and the MLZ (Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum, Germany) have already taken advantage of this opportunity and took part in DENIM 2012 at ISIS and DENIM 2013 at the SNS. Eighty attendees came together to discuss engineering challenges and solutions, shared ideas and instrument designs, as well as presenting current projects they were working on.

The MLZ, together with its cooperation partners Technische Universität München, Forschungszentrum Jülich and Forschungszentrum Geesthacht, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen to host DENIM 2014 at the Research Reactor Munich (FRM II) in Garching, and looks forward to playing its own part in this success story.

The organizers hope that the synergy effects already established will be further strengthened and the different disciplines in the technical world of science brought closer together.
