15th International Small-Angle Scattering conference (SAS 2012)

  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand small-angle scattering communities, you are invited to attend the 15th International Small-Angle Scattering conference (SAS 2012), in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia from 18 - 23 November 2012.

    The Organising Committee is dedicated to providing a contemporary and dynamic feel to SAS 2012 with exciting social events and networking opportunities combined with high quality science in a spectacular setting. We will be showcasing talent from the next generation of small-angle scatterers as well as highlighting emerging areas of the field.
