This is announcement of ICANS XXII. One of the topics of this conference is “Sample Environment at Advanced Neutron Sources”.
The 22nd meeting of the International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources (ICANS XXII) will be held on the 27–31 March 2017 in Oxford, England.
ICANS is an informal network of laboratories whose scientists and engineers are involved in developing pulsed neutron sources and accelerator based spallation neutron sources. The collaboration was founded in 1977 as a forum to promote discussions and collaborative work, and to share information on three main topics: accelerators, targets and moderators, and instruments.
After 24 years, the meeting returns to the UK and will be hosted by the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source at the Said Business School, University of Oxford with accommodation at St Anne’s College.

Do you know if there are already subjects that people would like to talk about at this ICANS event?
For example, we may consider talking about He liquefaction/recovery, standards for soft matter equipment, SECoP adoption, ISO 9000 accreditations, any other thing.

All the subjects you suggested are within the scope of sample environment part of ICANS program. Topics are going to be similar to those we had at SE workshop in US earlier this year:
• Cryogenics (including high magnetic fields and Liquid Helium stewardship)
• High pressure, gas handling and in situ chemistry
• High temperature
• Soft matter and biomedical samples
• Automation, robotics, protocols, electronics and software
