This year, 2021, we will celebrate an online version of QENS/WINS workshops during 17-21 May 2021. This online version will be a previous step to QENS/WINS 2022, to be held in San Sebastian, 23-27 May 2022, as a face-to-face conference.

QENS focusses on the discussion and exchange of scientific ideas related to the investigation of atomic and molecular motions, while WINS deals with instrumental aspects of quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering techniques. Though originally QENS and WINS were held in an independent way, the added value of their joint celebration has been put forward, since it enhances their scope and impact on the scientific community related with the quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering techniques.

Organizing committee:


Arantxa Arbe - Centro de Física de Materiales (CFM) (CSIC-UPV/EHU) – Materials Physics Center (MPC)

Juan Colmenero - Centro de Física de Materiales (CFM) (CSIC-UPV/EHU) – Materials Physics Center (MPC)

Other members:

Ane Iturriza - Materials Physics Center (MPC)

Amaia Iturrospe - Materials Physics Center (MPC)

Marta López - Materials Physics Center (MPC)

Jon Maiz - Materials Physics Center (MPC)

Paula Malo de Molina - Materials Physics Center (MPC)

Karmela Alonso - Donostia International Physics Centre (DIPC)

Carmen Martín - Donostia International Physics Centre (DIPC)


The main purpose of QENS 2021 is to cover the broad spectrum of scientific activities related with the investigation of dynamical processes in different systems using quasi-elastic neutron scattering techniques. As a novelty, this QENS edition will explore and exploit the potential synergies between different methods (including experimental techniques and simulations), in order to face diverse scientific challenges emerging in different research fields. WINS 2021 will cover innovative aspects of neutron instrument design.
