SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
2575 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, CA, USA
October 1-4, 2013
We have an exciting line-up of workshops and science talks for the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) and the Linac Coherent Lightsource (LCLS) annual users' conference. The activities scheduled over this multi-day event provide opportunities to learn about the latest user research results, current/future capabilities and new science opportunities as well as to interact with other scientists and vendors of light source related products and services.
Note to federally-funded participants: The LCLS/SSRL Users' Conference will proceed as planned, with the understanding that some government employees as well as some federally-funded users may not be able to participate if a budget resolution is not completed in time.
Pursuant to the American with Disabilities Act, if you have specific requirements for visual, audio, mobile, or other disabilities, email us to discuss your requirements.
Registraton has closed. Plenary session talks will be simulcast from the Kavli Auditorium to the ROB. Note that some room locations have been updated due to the large number of registrants. Plan to arrive early for desired sessions as participation in events may be limited due to room capacity.

The LCLS and SSRL Users Organizations welcome your feedback and suggestions. Plan to attend the LCLS Users Organization Meeting on October 1 and the SSRL Users Organization Meeting on October 2. Cast your ballots by October 3 to vote for the Users' Executive Committees:
The LCLS and SSRL Users Organizations encourage users to submit abstracts to share their latest research results at the users' poster session on October 3.
We look forward to seeing you at the October 1-4 Annual Users' Meeting & Workshops!
