Neutrons 2.0: International Workshop Software for Neutron Scattering

25-27 March 2013

Erwin Schrödinger Zentrum, Berlin, Germany

MCVine Monte Carlo Virtual neutron experiment of a dispersion curve.

With the availability of powerful personal computers, analysis and simulation of scientific data has become routine for experimental scientists. Using own designed programs for data analysis in the early times powerful software packages and platforms are available today which allow simulation and fitting of experimental results also to non-specialists with reasonable amount of training.

The current workshop aims to bring together experts in simulation techniques, data visualization and data reduction with instrument scientists and neutron users to discuss requirements, possibilities and options for future data analysis and simulation capabilities at large scale neutron facilities. The workshop will focus on the development of current software tools and platforms and identify requirements in specific techniques and methods. The goal is to give the audience a schematic overview of the different levels of data analysis from browsing, reduction, screening and visualization of data to fitting and interpretation in terms of a model.

To collect some input on requirements and use of software and the expectations by users you may help us and join a short survey dedicated to Virtual Experiments in neutron scattering. Just use the following survey link.

Late registration Is still open with late registration fee.

The workshop is jointly organized by the Institute Laue Langevin, Grenoble, the Technical University Denmark, Lyngby , the University Copenhagen and the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie GmbH, Berlin.
