The “Channeling” (International conference "Charged and Neutral Particles Channeling Phenomena") series are the conferences devoted to new developments in the field of coherent and incoherent scattering of hadrons and leptons (protons, ions, electrons, muons and related antiparticles) in matter of various periodicity structures from the viewpoint of fundamental studies as well as applications. The organization of these conferences based on the traditions of the related successful meetings in Europe, America and Asia (including URSS and former URSS states’ conferences) started more than 30 years ago.

The first two meetings of new series - "Channeling 2004" and "Channeling 2006" were organized by the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) at the National Laboratories of Frascati (LNF), and the third meeting, "Channeling 2008", at the Erice Majorana Centre (Erice, Italy). The proceedings of the Frascati's conferences were issued by SPIE - the International Society for Optical Engineering (Proc. of SPIE, Vol. 5974 and Vol. 6634), while the Erice's meeting - by the World Scientific Publishing, as a special issue of "The Science and Culture Series - Physics".

The conference represents a unique opportunity for the wide interdisciplinary community to gain information about current and future researches in the field of coherent/incoherent scattering of radiations in matter (crystals, nanoporous materials, capillaries), and in particular for young scientists who have interest in undertaking new investigations following the foreseen development of the next generation photon sources, as well as an important opportunity for exploring and discussing new international initiatives in radiation penetration science, such as channeling of charged and neutral particles and related studies.

The scientific program of conference will include invited talks, oral and poster presentations. Sufficient time for informal discussions will be allocated.
