JCNS Workshop 2022 Trends and Perspectives in Neutron Scattering: Experiments and data analysis in the digital age

The workshop wants to be a forum of software experts and neutron users to discuss the challenges and the opportunities of the digital transformation in neutron and related scattering techniques.

The digitalization has influenced the fields of neutron as well as of other scattering techniques in recent years. The application of artificial intelligence and the increasing automation of the experiments has contributed to a better use of the beam time and data, it has speeded up the data reduction, facilitated and improved the data analysis. Digital twins have also attracted much attention in neutron scattering, providing insights that can be used to better prepare experiments and train users and students. Moreover, the move from steady source to time-of-flight instrumentation as well as the passage from one- to two-dimensional detectors has triggered need for advanced and multi-dimensional data treatment. An additional challenge is to make data and software "FAIR" and sustainable.

The scientific program aims to promote cross-disciplinary discussions starting from the following topics:

  • Sustainable software development
  • Analysis on the fly
  • Inverse problems
  • Experiments in the digital age
  • Autonomous experiments and robotics
  • AI assisted methods
  • Data management
  • Data reduction and analysis

The conference is organized by the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS), Forschungszentrum Jülich.
