This year's meeting theme is “Making and Measuring in 4-Dimensions”, as we focus on the exciting new prospects of NSLS-II, and the continuing excellence of CFN. Here is what to expect at this year’s meeting:
The meeting program includes invited talks, workshops, a poster session, and exhibits highlighting new technology and instrumentation -- all offering opportunities to learn about the latest developments in synchrotron and nanoscience experimentation that can impact your own research.
The plenary session will be held on Tuesday, May 16. The keynote speaker will be Teri W. Odom, Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor; Associate Chair of the Department of Chemistry, Northwestern University, along with invited speakers Christophe Detavernier, Prof., Ghent University, Belgium and Mark Sutton, Prof., McGill University, Canada .
During the plenary session, there will be updates from Bruce Garrett, Division Director, Chemical Sciences, Geosciences, & Biosciences, U.S. Department of Energy; Doon Gibbs, Director, Brookhaven National Laboratory; John Hill, Deputy ALD for Energy Sciences & Photon Sciences and Director of NSLS-II; and Chuck Black, Director, Center for Functional Nanomaterial, Brookhaven National Laboratory. The session will also include an update on the NSLS-II Strategic Plan from Qun Shen, NSLS-ll Deputy for Science: and presentations from Ron Pindak, Stuart Wilkins, and Eric Dooryhee, NSLS-II Program Managers.
The Users' Meeting also hosts day-long workshops on a variety of topics related to NSLS-ll and the CFN. See the meeting website for complete details about the scientific workshops, the full agenda, and registration information.
