The annual users' meeting of the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) and the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) is a unique opportunity to gather together the lightsource community in a single scientific event that includes numerous presentations in plenary, poster and parallel sessions. Participants are able to learn about current/future facility capabilities and the latest user research results as well as to discuss science with colleagues from academia, research laboratories, and industry worldwide.

A plenary session with facility updates, invited talks, poster session and reception will be held on Thursday, September 28.

Focused half day workshops will be held in parallel on Wednesday, September 27 and Friday, September 29.

Suggested Workshops:

  • Accelerator Performance Developments
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Advanced X-ray Spectroscopy at SLAC:  From Theory to Experimental Concepts
  • CDI at LCLS
  • Detectors for Photon Science
  • Feature Extraction for LCLS-II
  • First Experiments for LCLS-II (with Update/Introduction to Instrumentation)
  • Hands-on data analysis workshop for LCLS
  • Probing Structure and Chemistry of Surfaces using Hard X-ray Methods
  • Room Temperature Serial Crystallography Approaches
  • Sample Preparation, Characterization & Delivery:  From PSLB to SSRL and LCLS
