Please join us on June 7-9 for the 2010 NUFO Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting of the National User Facilities Organization (NUFO) will be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) on June 7-9, 2010. This year’s meeting is being hosted by BNL’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS), and the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN). We invite all User Representatives, User Administrators, and General Members to attend this meeting.
We have reserved the Atlantis Marine World Aquarium for an optional catered dinner on Tuesday evening. Please note, there will be a fee in order to attend this event. Dinner guests will have access to the aquarium for the entire evening. If you are the adventuresome type, you may also wish to make a reservation to dive with the sharks.
Monday is devoted to administrative issues where User Administrators will discuss issues on metrics, user agreements, and surveys. This meeting is open to all members.
Tuesday will kick-off with a keynote talk from the Office of Science followed by presentations from several speakers discussing long-range and opportunities for future lightsources, nuclear, and High Energy Science as well as what NUFO has undertaken and accomplished during the past year.
Wednesday is devoted to a Special Symposium on Educational Outreach. The symposium will cover educational outreach from various perspectives, and includes invited talks from the National Science Foundation, DOE Office of Science Workforce Development, American Chemical Society, CERN, Adopt-a-Physicist Program, Physics Olympics, FIRST, MARIACHI, and other outreach efforts.
We encourage the NUFO membership to invite individuals from their institutions who would be interested and/or benefit from this program. The symposium is also part of the RHIC & AGS Annual Users’ Meeting which will be taking place at BNL the week of June 7th and the start of BNL's summer student program, so it will be widely attended.
