National Synchrotron Light Source Users’ Meeting
at Brookhaven Lab, May 19-21

EVENT: National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) Annual Users’ Meeting

WHEN: Monday-Wednesday, May 19-21, 2003

WHERE: Berkner Hall, Brookhaven National Laboratory. The Lab is located on William Floyd Parkway, one-and-a-half miles north of Exit 68 of the LI Expressway.

DETAILS: The NSLS Annual Users’ Meeting is a forum for reporting new experimental results and advances in synchrotron-radiation research capabilities. About 300 researchers — most of them scientists who use Brookhaven’s NSLS for their experiments — are expected to attend the meeting. Funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the NSLS is one of the most prolific scientific facilities in the world. Each year, about 2,500 scientists from around the world use its bright beams of x-ray, ultraviolet and infrared light for research in such diverse fields as biology and physics, chemistry and geophysics, and medicine and materials science.

Among the distinguished speakers who will attend the NSLS meeting is Patricia Dehmer, Associate Director of DOE’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences. On Tuesday, May 20, beginning at 10:45 a.m., Dehmer will address the meeting for about 30 minutes. Her talk will contain two segments: “DOE Update” and “Pat’s Totally Unsanctioned Safety Seminar.”
