Trends and Perspectives in Neutron Scattering: Experiments and data analysis in the digital age
October 11 @ 10:00 - October 14 @ 13:00
This year we (JCNS) are organizing again, for the first time after begin of Corona, our yearly Workshop in presence on the lake Starnberg (south of Munich).
The thematic is a hot topic at the moment: digitalization and application of AI in neutron scattering and in other scattering techniques. The title of the Workshop is „Trends and Perspectives in Neutron Scattering: Experiments and data analysis in the digital age”
The abstract submission and the registration are open https://www.fz-juelich.de/SharedDocs/Termine/JCNS/DE/2022/2022Workshop.html
JCNS WORKSHOP 2022
The digitalization has influenced the fields of neutron as well as of other scattering techniques in recent years. The application of artificial intelligence and the increasing automation of the experiments has contributed to a better use of the beam time and data, it has speeded up the data reduction, facilitated and improved the data analysis. Digital twins have also attracted much attention in neutron scattering, providing insights that can be used to better prepare experiments and train users and students. Moreover, the move from steady source to time-of-flight instrumentation as well as the passage from one- to two-dimensional detectors has triggered need for advanced and multi-dimensional data treatment.
An additional challenge is to make data and software “FAIR” and sustainable. The workshop is devoted to the area of quantum materials in all their forms.
TOPICS WILL INCLUDE
• Sustainable software development
• Analysis on the fly
• Inverse problems
• Experiments in the digital age
• Autonomous experiments and robotics
• AI assisted methods
• Data management
• Data reduction and analysis
The workshop wants to be a forum of software experts and neutron users to discuss the challenges and the opportunities of the digital transformation in neutron and related scattering techniques. The workshop will discuss current requirements and developments in such techniques. In particular the workshop is devoted to novel and upcoming experimental opportunities to discuss the scientific options and capabilities. The workshop will include invited and contributed oral presentations
and a poster session.
