Impressions from the 30th MAX IV user meeting

It has been a week since the 30th MAX IV user meeting where over 250 attendees met to discuss and learn for three days in Lund.

The impressions that we collected from the meeting are positive overall.

There was a very good atmosphere, good backup from the users, lively discussion, and full rooms for the parallel sessions. These are very important signs for for us going forward, says interim director Ian McNulty and science director Marjolein Thunnissen.

We also talked to a few of the users who appreciated that the user meeting is a good place to meet with colleagues and collaborators to discuss and learn. The other comment that we got from several of them was that it was important that they now have a clear time plan and overview of the status so that they can plan for their experiments at MAX IV.
