7th School of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS)

The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), part of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), will host the 7th School of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS School) from September 17 to 20, 2022. The school will take place at Sirius in Campinas-SP, Brazil as a satellite event part of the scientific activities of the 18th edition of the International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (SAS).

In this edition, the school will be focusing on the scattering data analysis of biological systems, such as proteins and biomembranes. Moreover, there will be both national and international well-known researchers giving classes. To the present date, the organizing committee are planning a 100% onsite school to promote opportunity for students to interact with the researchers and Sirius facilities.
