NOTE: Due to the uncertainty associated with the pandemic, the 2022 SSRL/LCLS Users' Meeting will be virtual.

2022 Virtual SSRL/LCLS Users' Meeting
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
September 26-30, 2022

All are invited to participate in the joint virtual users' meeting of the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) and the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory on September 26-30, 2022. This annual meeting is a unique opportunity to gather together the lightsource community in a single scientific event that includes numerous presentations in the plenary, poster, and parallel sessions. Participants can learn about current/future facility capabilities and the latest user research and discuss science with colleagues from academia, research laboratories, and industry worldwide.

Plenary Sessions & Keynote Talks

The September 27th plenary session will include a welcome from SLAC Director Chi-Chang Kao, facility updates, and townhall discussion with the LCLS and SSRL Directors, Mike Dunne and Paul McIntyre, and keynote talks from John R. Helliwell (University of Manchester), and Linda Young (Argonne National Laboratory). On September 29th, the plenary session will include young investigator talks and award presentations.

Poster Session

Presenting a poster is a great way to share your latest research advances and find out what's new from other users. This year, we are asking that just one individual register to present for each poster. Posters should be based on recent results from research done at LCLS, MeV-UED, SSRL, or the Stanford-SLAC Cryo-EM facility. Posters based on experimental results from LCLS and SSRL are eligible to compete for a Joe Wong Poster Award or a student BioXFEL award sponsored by NSF-supported BioXFEL Science and Technology Center.
