On the occasion of Professor Jan Skov Pedersen’s 60th birthday this year, we will celebrate his many contributions to the development of small-angle scattering techniques with the Symposium:

       Recent progress in small-angle scattering from soft matter and biological systems

                 The symposium will be held on 18-19 June at iNANO, Aarhus University.

                                   Register for the symposium before 12 June
