Soft Matter Science and Complex Materials Scattering Workshop

June 3-4, 2010

Location: Brookhaven National Laboratory, Bldg. 703, Large Conference Room

Workshop Organizers: Masafumi Fukuto, Kevin Yager, Ben Ocko, Elaine DiMasi

The aim of the workshop is to gauge the community's interests and needs, identify key scientific challenges, and establish the scientific case for the proposal.

Soft Matter Interfaces (SMI): X-ray scattering techniques to address hierarchical structure, self-assembly, and reactions at the interfaces of energy and biomolecular materials and complex liquids.

Complex Materials Scattering (CMS): Automated, high-throughput x-ray scattering for phase discovery and materials informatics in multi-component, heterogeneous, and nanoscale structured systems.
