Due to the big success of the two international GISAXS workshops at DESY in 2005 and 2007 and owing to the strong development of both neutron and x-ray based grazing incidence small-angle scattering (GISAS) in the recent years, it was decided to hold a dedicated GISAS conference at DESY in Hamburg as a satellite conference to the XIV SAS conference in Oxford (UK) in 2009. Thin film technology, nanostructures, surfaces and interfaces cover a wide range, from polymeric coatings to photonic and magnetic applications as well as nanotechnology. Grazing incidence small angle scattering (GISAS) is an advanced powerful method to investigate the structure and morphology of thin films and interfaces in order to extract the structure-function-relationship. It is both used in combination with x-rays and neutrons, each branch exploiting its specific advantages! Our aim is to bring together the different communities working in the field of thin films, nanostructures, surfaces and interfaces, to present recent results as well as to introduce this powerful method to new lines of research. The topics we will address are: • BioGISAS • Polymer / Soft matter • GISANS • Nanocomposites in 2D • New methods & Instrumentation, Detectors • Magnetic thin films • Coherence application in GISAS • Growth kinetics in 2D • Modelling, simulation & data analysis Looking forward to seeing you in Hamburg!
