The 28th RAU will be held at the premises of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), located at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas, São Paulo. The city of Campinas can be reached from São Paulo Guarulhos International Airport in approximately 1 – 1.5 hours by bus or car.

This edition will be the first one to be held at the brand new Sirius Synchroton Light Source!


The Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) is a private nonprofit organization located in Campinas, Brazil, which is funded by the Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation (MCTIC). It is dedicated to cutting-edge research in materials, nanosciences, life sciences, physics, and chemistry through four National Laboratories: Synchrotron (LNLS), Biosciences (LNBio)Bioethanol (CTBE) and Nanotechnology (LNNano). The four laboratories are open facilities for external users and companies, from Brazil and abroad. They also have teams of researchers to provide support for projects, as well as to conduct joint research programs in biomass, green chemistry, drugs and cosmetics development, characterization of advanced materials, catalysts, etc.


The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), located in Campinas, at São Paulo state, operates the only synchrotron light source in Latin America, providing high brilliant light from infrared to X-rays for the analysis of organic and inorganic materials. Designed and built with Brazilian technology, LNLS was inaugurated in 1997 as an open facility to the scientific and industrial communities across the country and abroad.
LNLS is currently engaged in the development and construction of Sirius, the next Brazilian synchrotron light source. It is planned to be a state of the art fourth generation machine, designed to be one of the most advanced in the world. Its ultra-low emittance and thus high brightness will open up new perspectives for research in many fields such as material science, structural biology, nanoscience, physics, earth and environmental science, cultural heritage, among many others. It is scheduled to start commissioning in 2018 and to be opened to users in 2019.


To be eligible to financial support applicants must:

  • Submit their abstracts and registration forms until June 10th
  • Upload their abstract and CV during the registration

Financial support is per abstract and depends on funding. Two applicants cannot benefit from the same abstract.

The Scientific Committee selects the abstracts for oral or poster presentations. After acceptation, applicants must confirm their interest by paying the registration fee until September 30th

The abstracts will be selected by the scientific committee and the grants will be announced by end of August 2018 or as soon the approval of resources is received.

Note: the granting of support depends also on the amount of resources approved for the RAU by the funding agencies.

LNLS will observe the following rules for the benefit concession’s:


1) Transportation

1.1) Air tickets
Financial support regarding air tickets may be granted to participants who have Masters or PhD degree, or to the guest speakers.

2) Accommodation

Important Notes

  • The participants who are receiving financial support of any kind must be present on the meeting full time, not only during the day when their work will be presented (poster or oral communication);
  • In case of “no show” at the event, the beneficiaries must send an explanation message at least one week in advance, in order to avoid the charging on the air ticket and the hotel daily rate for no show. As the charging depends on our supplier’s policies and there is no possibility to cancel in time, the beneficiaries must assume the responsibility for their expenses;
  • The ones granted with the air ticket can feel free to choose the flight dates between November 5th– 12th, 2018. It will not be allowed any change in date (anticipation or extension) after the ticket emission. It is mandatory to check-in online and send the return boarding passes to eventos@cnpem.brright after this procedure. Ticket’s changing or the loss of boarding pass will imply in refusal of grant in a next event promoted by the LNLS|CNPEM;
  • The grant will not necessarily cover costs of both accommodation and transportation in all cases. The organizing committee is committed to inform what kind of assistance was conceded to all beneficiaries, considering distance and the expense price.
