23. February 2015 - 24. February 2015 MLZ User Meeting 2015

Ismaning, Germany


On February 23rd and 24th the MLZ User Meeting 2015 focussing on future perspectives of neutron science will take place. We would like to discuss the expected evolution in the major fields of science, where neutrons play an important role within the community. The goal of this meeting will be to create a science roadmap becoming a guide for future methods and instrument development at MLZ. This workshop will be very important because it will set the scene for our instrumentation development efforts.

The meeting will feature scientific presentations of keynote speakers that shall elucidate perspectives on their field for the coming decade and relate them to specific needs on the method side. In cooperation with the MLZ Science Groups, four plenary speakers in the fields of soft matter and biology, quantum phenomena and magnetism, structure research in chemistry and energy, and material science are invited. Their talks lay the basis for an in depth discussion on the future development of the respective fields. MLZ users are warmly invited to contribute to these discussions and to present their work in a poster session.

The MLZ User Meeting 2015 will take place at the Commundo Tagungshotel, Ismaning (near Munich) and last two half days to allow the attendees to arrive on Monday morning at Ismaning and head back home on Tuesday afternoon.

MLZ covers subsistence and accommodation at the Commundo Hotel for external users.
