Postponed until later this year

Dear colleagues,

We are very grateful for your interest in attending our Users’ Meeting (AUM) that was scheduled for Saturday, May 23, 2020.

Given the increased efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 and the resulting enhanced travel restrictions for participants and speakers, we have decided to postpone the AUM, Synchrotron Week, and its affiliated workshops until later this year. We made this decision because we are committed to your safety and the safety of all our staff, clients and visitors. We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may cause for you and your colleagues.

When we have more details about the event and its new date, we will be sure to let you know.

We are grateful for your patience and understanding.

If you have any questions, please contact

The Annual Users’ Meeting (AUM)

The Annual Users’ Meeting (AUM) provides a venue for synchrotron scientists from diverse disciplines to share their work and discuss future directions for their research. It is also an excellent opportunity to receive the latest facility developments and meet with CLS scientists.

This will be a blast from the past, with a few days of affiliated workshops covering powder diffraction, X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (Larch, FDMNES and FEFF), and CT imaging, leading up to the AUM which will include a full agenda of scientific presentations, facility updates, and a poster session with prizes. The keynote speaker at the AUM will be Harry Westfahl Jr., Scientific Director of the new Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory.
