ILSC Registration

Light Scattering in the Nano World:
Supporting Innovations in Chemistry, Biotechnology & Material Science

You don't know what you're missing if you haven't attended ILSC! Held on Santa Barbara's beautiful coast, you'll discover fabulous food, dolphins, great weather, and a wealth of information on light scattering in the service of science and industry.

Our guest speakers include prominent researchers from industry as well as academia, active in diverse areas including biotechnology, biomolecular chemistry, polymer chemistry, and nanotechnology. These seminars illuminate many ways in which analytical light scattering advances scientific research, offering opportunities for cross-pollination of novel ideas.

In addition to the main event, two satellite events bracket ILSC: Short Courses and the Focus Meeting. See below for more info.

Short Courses | Nov. 2, 2015

Introductory & advanced 1/2 day courses: MALS, DLS and more

Would you like an introductory course on basic light scattering, a refresher on ASTRA 6 or an introduction to an advanced technique such as CG-MALS? We are offering a series of half-day courses organized so you can attend one AM course and one PM course. The lectures will be held at Wyatt Technology HQ, and are not only a great way to prepare for ILSC, but also a good excuse for traveling to Santa Barbara in November! View course schedule.


Focus Meeting | Nov. 5, 2015

Method development for light scattering applications in the formulation of biotherapeutics

A one day focus meeting, held after ILSC 2015, will address practical issues encountered in light scattering applications to biologic and small-molecule therapeutic formulation. Guest speakers from industry as well as Wyatt scientists will discuss how they meet these challenges. View Focus Meeting details.


Light Scattering University and DynaLSU | Oct. 27 - 30, 2015

Interested in training? Our renowned user training courses Light Scattering University and DynaLSU for MALS and DLS users, respectively, will be held the week before ILSC in order to accommodate those who would like to attend both events.
