The quadrennial Asia-Oceania Conference on Neutron Scattering plays a complementary role in the tripolar regional neutron conferences, along with the ACNS (American Conference on Neutron Scattering, organized by NSSA) and the ECNS (European Conference Neutron Scattering, organized by ENSA).
These conferences cover all scientific areas of neutron scattering including fundamental physics, material science, magnetism, chemistry, disordered systems, biology, soft matter, surface/interface science and instrumentation. The scientific programs consist of a plenary lecture, invited lectures, poster presentations and AONSA Prize lecture.
The 4th AOCNS will be held on December 2 – 8, 2023 at the Royal Garden Hotel, Dongguan, China. (Please note that the date is not in November.)
The 3rd AOCNS was on November 16–21, 2019 at the Howard Beach Resort Kenting, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan.
The 2nd AOCNS was held on July 19–23, 2015 at the Novotel Manly Pacific, Sydney, Australia.
