Joint SSRL/LCLS Annual Users' Meeting at SLAC
SEPTEMBER 26-28, 2018


Thank you for making the 2017 annual SSRL/LCLS users' meeting a success. Over 400 people participated in one or more of the many events that comprise the annual users' meeting of the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) and the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS).

Save the dates September 26-28, 2018 for the next joint SSRL/LCLS Users' Conference & Workshops. This 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 as well as to discuss science with colleagues from academia, research laboratories, and industry worldwide.

A plenary session with facility updates, invited talks, and exhibits with several focused half day workshops are planned. The User Science Poster Session and reception will also include presentation of the Joe Wong Outstanding Poster Awards.

Congratulations to these 2017 Poster Award Winners:


Meeting Organizers:

  • Ariana Gleason (Stanford, LCLS UEC Vice Chair)
  • Graham George (U Saskatchewan, SSRL UEC Vice Chair)
  • Kevin Stone (SLAC SSRL)


The joint annual users' meeting will be held at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

We look forward to seeing you at the next joint SSRL/LCLS users' conference in September 2018!
