As usual canSAS will hold some events in conjunction with the triennial SAS2024 meeting being held in Taipei Taiwan from 3-8 November 2024. canSAS-XIV will include a half day session on Sunday prior to the meeting and an open informational lunch session on Monday.


The acronym canSAS stands for collective action for nomadic Small Angle Scatterers. It is a bottom-up effort originally initiated in Grenoble by Ron Ghosh (ILL), Roland May (ILL), Peter Timmins (ILL), Claudio Ferrero (ESRF) and Wim Bras (DUBBLE CRG) in 1998. Ever since it has been an ongoing activity to provide the small-angle scattering user community with shared tools for data reduction and analysis, and disseminating other pertinent information ( Lately the focus has been on data analysis and modelling software, instrument resolution corrections and other issues related to data interpretation.

A several day independent meeting is held every few years while shorter meetings are planned at the triennial SAS conferences to take advantage of the convening of the larger community as a whole.
