The LNLS 28th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) will take place from 6th to 9th of November, 2018, at the CNPEM campus in Campinas, SP. RAU includes, in addition to the standard program, 3 different satellite meetings.

The RAU meeting aims to gather the LNLS user community, encouraging the exchange of experiences and debates on the existing and future facilities. It is an important forum for discussion, evaluation and presentation of proposals for the improvement of the research structures.

With the imminent conclusion of the construction works of Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, the participation of the scientific community becomes essential in order to describe their needs and expectations for the new synchrotron source. The RAU meeting is the ideal place to foster this debate.

Important Dates

  • Opening of applications: May 9th 
  • Deadline for applications with financial support: June 10th
