This joint meeting and associated workshops are supported by registration fees paid by the participants. Social events, lunches, and coffee breaks are provided to registered attendees primarily by our exhibitors and sponsors, and in part by the NSLS-II facility and CFN's Brookhaven Science Associates' funding. The Users' Meeting Planning Committee consists of users and staff of NSLS-II and CFN. Administrative support for the meeting is provided by BNL's National Synchrotron Light Source II and the Center for Functional Nanomaterials.
