The MAX IV Laboratory user community has been, since 1988, regularly and actively engaged in the annual User Meeting to learn, discuss and contribute to the MAX IV synchrotron science and its research directions.

Each year the user meeting contents are tailored to the scientific needs and interests of the user community. The invited speakers, common talks, parallel sessions, satellite workshops and occasional tutorials are chosen to provide a technical and scientific overview of the facility covering a large palette of sciences and methods. The user meeting format aims to promote exchange between the participants within and across each field.
