On April 1st, 2021 (4 pm ET), the Neutron Scattering Society of America invites you to the first installment of the Neutron Café, a new series to connect neutron scatterers of all ages in a casual forum and further build community. We invite you to relax, brew a cup of coffee, and join us for an interview of the original principal investigators of the Distributed Data Analysis for Neutron Scattering Experiments (DANSE) project.
Conducted over Zoom and streaming over Facebook, Claire Saunders and Hubert King will interview the following DANSE PIs.
Funded by the National Science Foundation to build data reduction software for neutron scattering science, the DANSE project began in 2004 and ended in 2011. Fultz led the inelastic scattering subgroup, Billinge the diffraction subgroup, Kienzle the reflectometry subgroup, and Butler the SANS subgroup. The project yielded software packages including MCViNE, PDFgui, Refl1D, and SasView.
Claire and Hubert will also take interactive questions from the audience. Links for the event to follow!
