10 miles north of downtown Chicago

The 11th SXNS conference will take place on Northwestern University campus from 13th to 17th of July, 2010 nearby Chicago, jointly organized by Northwestern University and the Argonne National Laboratory. This series, started in 1989 in Marseille, brings together researchers studying surfaces and interfaces of solid, liquid, biological and soft matter via neutron or x-ray (either hard, soft, or EUV) scattering techniques.
