2012 NSLS/CFN Joint Users' Meeting

Sponsor Opportunities

On behalf of the NSLS and CFN Users' Executive Committees, we invite you to participate as a sponsor of the 2012 Joint NSLS and CFN Users' Meeting. the meeting will be held May 21-23, on site at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, NY.

This year's theme is "Nanotechnology for Energy and Health” and will highlight the vital roles served by the Department of Energy’s Synchrotron User Facilities and Nanoscience Research Centers. Scientists that use both the NSLS and CFN are actively engaged in developing nanoscience, nanotechnology and nanoscale imaging for life science and energy-related applications. The program includes invited talks, workshops, a poster session, and exhibits showcasing new technology and instrumentation – all offering opportunities to learn about the latest developments in synchrotron and nanoscience experimentation.

All sponsors will have high visibility in the meeting program, on display signs throughout the facilities, in frequent conference announcements, and on our meeting website. Most importantly, your organization will be furthering synchrotron radiation and nanoscience advancements in science and technology.

Sponsorship opportunities include the following and must be confirmed by May 4, 2012:
