Conference Profile

The 11th International Conference for Surface X-ray and Neutron Scattering (SXNS-11) will be held at Northwestern University from July 13-17, 2010.

In total, 200 total attendees are expected, with 50% from the US, 30% students, and 22 invited speakers.

This year's meeting will focus on interfacial science with an exciting theme: from processing to properties. As in past years, exhibitors will be able to integrate their company's participation in the meeting via a variety of sponsorship opportunities.

The unique opportunity of this year’s meeting is its proximity to the Advanced Photon Source (APS), where many beamlines currently house surface and interfacial-science activities.

Currently underway is the APS Upgrade that will include spanning innovations in both beamline and accelerator capabilities as well as encompassing upgrades in both hardware and software, driven by key scientific needs within the surface-science user community for state-of-the-art tools and capabilities.  As such, this year will offer our exhibitors unique and timely opportunities to discover how your products and services may fit into this new phase of development at the APS.

There will also be many international developers from other synchrotrons and neutron sources, such as the ESRF, SPring-8, SLS, Diamond, NSLS, SSRL, LCLS, CHESS, CLS, ALS, DESY, SNS, ILL, GKSS, LANSCE, NIST, Soleil, NSRRC, Photon Factory, Pohang, ANKA, LNLS, and others that can be found at the following links:

Exhibit and Sponsorship Opportunities

Exhibitor set-up will be on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 at 11am, prior to the first poster session that afternoon. Booth teardown will take place on Friday, July 16, 2010 at 5pm following the afternoon coffee break. Additional vendor attendees may register to participate in the meeting for an additional fee.
If you are unable to attend this year, you can still give your company some great visibility by purchasing ad space in the program book or choosing to sponsor a social event, an award, or a student poster prize. Upgrades for vendor ad sizes are also available.
