Neutron scattering research continues to benefit from best engineering practice and state of the art development. The DENIM conference poses an opportunity for engineers, working in the field of neutron instrumentation, to meet and exchange ideas, concepts and to learn from each other’s successes and failures.

The DENIM conference is looking for presentations and talks in the following fields of engineering:

Open source engineering – Experience of open source solutions.
Keeping them up – Engineering for instrument availability and reliability.
Going green – The challenge of decommissioning and disposal.
Detector integration – Experience from integration of detectors.
Instrument installation and commissioning – Installation and commissioning lessons from an engineering point of view.
Maintenance for science – Maintenance procedures, handling tools and lessons learnt.
Materials and components in harsh environments – Issues and experiences from materials and components in harsh environments.
How to control critical components – Control strategies for mission critical and hard to get equipment.
Advanced sample handling, areas and caves – Equipment, procedures and designs for better sample handling.
Science requirements to engineering specifications – Understanding and specifying in engineering terms what science needs.
The engineering of radiological shielding – Engineering of shielding structures and components for performance, cost and operability.
Survey and Alignment – Engineering components and structures for alignment, realignment and operability.

The topics will be combined to form three plenary sessions and five to six parallel sessions, based on interest and feedback.
The call for abstracts is closed.
