ICNS 2022 - Internacional Conference on Neutron Scattering ICNS 2022 - Internacional Conference on Neutron Scattering


On behalf of the Continental Organizing Committee, we are pleased to announce that the International Conference on Neutron Scattering 2022 (ICNS 2022) will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina.


August 21st - 25th, 2022

Buenos Aires - ARGENTINA

ICNS 2022 will be the 12th conference in a series held every four years starting in 1982, including most recently ICNS 2009 in Knoxville, USA, ICNS 2013 in Edinburgh, UK, and ICNS 2017 in Daejeon, Korea.

The ICNS 2022 will be the largest international platform for sharing and exchanging the latest exciting advances in neutron scattering science, including a broad range of topics.


We understand that life is uncertain right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we hope that everything could go back to some kind of normality next year, and we are planning accordingly. While we remain optimistic that an in-person ICNS 2022 will take place, a preparation for some degree of virtuality is also under consideration. Depending on the evolution of the worldwide situation, we may have to make critical decisions in the next few months, which may have implications on the format of ICNS 2022.
