Homepage - Welcome to ICANS XXII

The 22nd meeting of the International Collaboration on Advanced Neutron Sources (ICANS XXII) will be held on the 27th -31st 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.

In addition to the core areas of accelerators, target and instrumentation, other key areas such as sample environment, data analysis and computing, polarisation, detectors, shielding and neutronics will be discussed.  It is the principal goal of ICANS to promote and facilitate informal discussions and as such, the meeting will comprise several workshop sessions.   

We hope you can join us for ICANS XXII and look forward to welcoming you to Oxford.
