Intrinsically Disordered Protein Regions in the Context of Polymer Physics

Intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs) in proteins have emerged as a major research theme in modern biology, challenging the traditional protein structure-function paradigm. Our workshop aims at approaching the topic from an overarching macromolecular viewpoint. We suggest that IDRs and...

Polarized Neutron Diffraction and Spectroscopy: Applications to Quantum Materials

Polarized neutron measurements allow one to better understand intertwined orders in quantum materials by unambiguously distinguishing between the structural and magnetic scattering features and determining the direction of magnetic moments and their fluctuations. The main goal of the workshop is...

Software Imaging Workshop

We keep hearing from X-ray and neutron imaging instrument scientists that those 2 techniques are very similar. But somehow those 2 worlds share only a minimum set of software tools. Instead of duplicating the effort in software development, we would like to improve the synergy and the...
