Call for Posters

Posters are sought that represent the breadth of interests and capabilities across the SNS and HFIR user communities. Poster presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts. Poster presenters, who are graduate or undergraduate students at the time of the presentation, will also be eligible for Best Student Poster Competition. To be considered, please select the "yes" option on the bottom of the registration form.

Poster submissions are due May 10 at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

Poster Slam

Each poster contributor will be given two minutes to introduce their poster at a plenary session after lunch on June 4. 

We encourage abstracts about how you have used or plan to use neutrons in your research for the following topics:

  • Soft Colloids and Polymers – Covering aspects of the structure and dynamics of colloids and polymers with focus on the development of advanced materials and understanding the basic science. Applications can involve energy storage materials, biomedical applications and engineering materials. Basic research involves understanding and prediction of experimental scaling laws in concert with theory and simulation.
  • Bio-membranes and Proteins – Covering aspects of the structure and dynamics of bio-membranes and proteins. It involves basic understanding of the interactions of membranes with different additives and foreign particles with possible bio-medical applications. Protein crystallography using neutrons and understanding the dynamics of proteins that involves change in their functionalities.
  • Advanced Techniques – Covering the advances and ideas in the treatment and modeling of neutron scattering data, and development of new sample environments. 
  • Hard Functional Materials – Covering aspects of structure and phenomena in bulk, thin-film, and nano-versions of materials including, but not limited to ferroelectrics, thermoelectrics, superconductors, correlated electron materials, photovoltaics, batteries, etc. 
  • Materials Engineering – Covering aspects of understanding the behavior of materials under applied stress or thermal, magnetic, or electrical fields; characterizing materials under real-life operating conditions with moving components; and extending the service life of critical engineering structures.
  • Quantum Materials – Covering aspects of designing and synthesizing energy-efficient, revolutionary new forms of matter that have specific, tailored properties; understanding and controlling complex, atomic- and subatomic-level interactions of magnetic and electrical properties in materials; understanding how complex phenomena emerge from simple ingredients.
