2005 NSLS Users' Meeting

Agenda

The annual NSLS Users' Meeting and Workshops are hosted and sponsored by the National Synchrotron Light Source Users' Association, an external organization representing the users of the NSLS. The annual meeting and workshops are supported primarily by registration fees paid by the participants. Social events, lunches and coffee are provided to registered attendees, compliments of our vendors and sponsors.

The Users' Executive Committee (UEC), the association's elected body, cordially invites all BNL employees to attend Tuesday's Early Morning Plenary Session, free of charge. All other sessions are dedicated to scientific talks and require registration. BNL employees and guests are warmly invited to register for these sessions, the workshops and other events (fees are required).

2018 NSLS-II and CFN Users' Meeting agenda



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.
