A one-day workshop held on April 13, 2017, in Makassar, has jointly organized by Indonesian Neutron Scattering Society (INSS), in collaboration with National Nuclear Energy Agency (BATAN), Sekolah Tinggi Teknologi Nuklir (STTN) Yogyakarta, Universitas Hasanuddin (UNHAS), Universitas Negeri Makassar (UNM), and Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) Surabaya. The workshop, hosted by UNM, accommodated around 50 participants, consisting of undergraduate as well as graduate students, young scientists and lecturers from the universities involved. Presentation with intensive discussion during the event covering the topics of structural studies on materials, small angle scattering for nanosized-objects, the applications of neutron scattering on renewable energy and functional materials, has respectively been given by Prof. Evvy Kartini (President of INSS), Dr. Edy Giri Rachman Putra (Director of STTN), Dr. Nurlaela Rauf (UNHAS), and Prof. Darminto (ITS). The organizing committee chaired by Prof. Eko Hadi Sujiono (UNM) invited the Dean, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, UNM, to open the workshop.
The 8th Asia Oceania Neutron Scattering Society School (8th AONSA Neutron School-2016) took place in BARC, Mumbai, India, from November 15-19, 2016. This school was organized regularly by the AONSA and the neutron facilities in the region, in order to promote the neutron scattering science and technology to the young researchers, young lecturers and mostly for students, who come from various regional countries. The 8th AONSA School was attended by 40 participants from Japan, Korea, Indonesia, India, Taiwan, China, Malaysia and Bangladesh. Several lectures on neutron scattering and its applications have been delivered by the experts, about the facilities and also the basic theory of neutron scattering. It was followed by the hand-on experiments using instruments at BARC.
Indonesia has sent five participants at the Asian Oceania Neutron Scattering School (AONSA) in Mumbai (4 BATAN and 1 ITS). It is expected that more Indonesian young researchers understand the use of neutrons and will become potential users in the coming years. At closing, all the participants have to present their experience and results on the neutron topics. The participants acknowledged to the AONSA, committee facilities and sponsors for their opportunity to gain so much knowledge and experience on neutron scattering. They now realized how important the nuclear technology for materials science and application in industries.
