The Covid-19 pandemic is developing quickly worldwide. As we ensure that the health and safety of our attendees, staff, and operational personnel in the upcoming PNCMI are our top priority, the local organizing and the International Advisory Committees believe a postponement of PNCMI 2020 is necessary. Therefore, we have decided to postpone PNCMI 2020 until next year. We will announce the new dates at a later time when we have a clearer view of the evolving situation. We hope you will join us at PNCMI 2021. We wish you and your loved ones well during these uncertain times.
The conference will cover the latest condensed-matter investigations using polarized neutrons and state-of-the-art methodologies and techniques of polarized-neutron production and utilization for novel instrumentation and experiments, with emphasis on prospects for new science and instrument concepts as well as combining neutrons with complementary techniques and in-situ secondary measurements.
PNCMI is the most comprehensive conference on the latest scientific research using polarized neutrons and on related instrumentation development.
The topics will include:
- Multiferroics and chirality
- Strongly correlated electron systems
- Frustrated and disordered systems
- Quantum materials
- Magnetic nanomaterials
- Thin films and multilayers
- Soft matter
- Polarized neutron instrumentation
- Polarized neutron techniques and methods
The conference will include a tour of the polarized-neutron facilities at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) in Gaithersburg, Maryland. There will also be a Polarized Neutron School for North American applicants held before the main meeting at the NCNR.
