October 2–4, 2018
This October, the past, present, and future will converge at the annual ALS User Meeting in Berkeley celebrating the ALS’s 25th anniversary. Users’ Executive Committee (UEC) members Jennifer Ciezak-Jenkins, Alex Frañó, and Michael Jacobs have revamped the format of this year’s meeting especially with the next generation of users—students and early career scientists—in mind.
In addition to the always-popular science workshops presenting the latest scientific findings and technical advances, this year’s meeting will have a larger emphasis on tutorials. The tutorials will be geared towards introducing new and seasoned users to various techniques, tools, and instrumentation. A special tutorial organized by the UEC, entitled “Light Sources 101: An Introduction to the World of Experiments at the ALS,” will provide an overview for students, early-career scientists, and those who want to expand their technique toolkit.
- Updates from DOE, the ALS Director, and the ALS-U Project Director
- Keynote talks

Note: Limited sponsorship for student registration and travel is available for those who would like to attend the full meeting. We are also able to support a limited number of students who would like to attend the Light Sources 101 tutorial only. To be considered, please fill in this form ASAP.
