Light Sources Directorate Planning Workshops
NSLS and NSLS-II conducted a series of workshops in early 2008
as part of the process of gathering community input to inform the strategic
scientific plans and beamline development for the two facilities. The
workshops were divided into two types, those focused on particular
techniques, and those focused on particular scientific communities. It is
likely that these will be the
first in a series of such workshops.
Six technique-based workshops were also scheduled for the same period.
The goals of these workshops were to explore the scientific drivers for each
of these beamline types, and to develop the technical requirements that flow
from these. In addition, a key output of these workshops was to form
Beamline Advisory Teams that will submit Letters of Interest to work with
the facilities to design, construct and commission these beamlines. The
