The Ultrafast X-ray Summer School UXSS2019 will take place at the Center for Free Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg, Germany, June 17-21, 2019.
UXSS is an annual event jointly organized by the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg and the Stanford PULSE Institute. UXSS is intended to introduce students and postdocs to the latest science that is enabled by novel X-ray Free Electron Lasers. The program will be highly interdisciplinary, with topics ranging from materials physics to structural biology. The list of confirmed speakers can be found below.  There will also be a coursework exercise involving a mock proposal for European XFEL, with the help of experienced mentors.
