NSLS-II User Workshop

July 17-18, 2007

Brookhaven National Laboratory hosted a workshop on July 17-18, 2007 to update the user community on the status and plans for NSLS-II.  The goals of the workshop were to:

  • Describe the conceptual design and current status of NSLS-II
  • Describe the process for beamline development at NSLS-II
  • Discuss plans for transitioning from NSLS to NSLS-II
  • Provide opportunity for feedback and input
  • Hold breakout sessions to discuss potential beamlines
