ISIS Disordered Materials User Group Meeting and EPSR Workshop 2017
25 Jan 2017



We cordially invite you to attend the 2017 ISIS Disordered Materials User Group meeting that will be held at the Cosener’s House in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th February 2017.


​​​​​​​The Disordered Materials User Group Meeting has been held at Cosener's House in previous years.


This year we have put together a diverse programme that aims to highlight the wide range of disordered materials and complex systems science that is now being performed at ISIS. The meeting will also provide an opportunity for attendees to make new contacts, build collaborations and discuss new scientific opportunities that could be developed on the instrumentation that the group supports.

The meeting will start with lunch on Tuesday 14th February 2017, and conclude at the end of the working day on Wednesday 15th. As for previous events, financial support for attendees registered at UK institutions will be provided and this will cover the costs of standard travel to and from the meeting, food, drink and overnight accommodation at the venue.

Although the programme of presentations is already confirmed, opportunities for poster presentations on disordered materials science and instrumentation from user meeting participants are planned for the evening of Tuesday 14th.

If you would like to attend this event, registration can be made at the following web site:

Registration will close at the end of January.

For those interested in learning about advanced analysis of total scattering data collected from liquids, glasses or complex systems, the user group meeting will be followed on the 16th and 17th February by the 2017 workshop on Empirical Potential Structure Refinement (EPSR). This two-day training course will introduce users to the principles and practice of building atomistic models of neutron and/or X-ray total scattering data. The workshop will introduce the participants to the latest version of EPSR and the newly developed EPSRgui that makes the creation and refinement of atomistic structural models of disordered systems more intuitive.

Registration for the workshop can be performed at the link provided above, and local accommodation and catering will be provided for UK based participants.

We look forward to seeing you in February!​
