The User Meeting aims to  create an interesting and valuable meeting for all concerned in consultation with MAX IV scientists, FASM (our users organization), SSUO/ESUO (the Swedish and European user organizations) as well the Swedish Universities through the MAX IV Universities Reference Group (URG) and the ESS. MAX IV now has both the 3 GeV and 1.5 GeV storage rings in operation and calls  for normal proposals for structural biology, spectroscopy and nanoscience  on BioMAX, HIPPIE and NanoMAX beamlines, respectively. A new Commissioning Experts call is now opened. All together this has lead to this year contents of the 30th MAX IV User Meeting – Coherent Visions (UM18).

 

The two lunch-to-lunch days of the 30th MAX IV User Meeting – Coherent Visions contents are:

  • MAX IV User community, user science and its future horizons at MAX IV.
  • Plenary talks.
  • VR review of the needs for access to X-ray based facilities by the Swedish Research community.
  • Directors´science and facility status.
  • Seven parallel sessions on Tuesday 25th.
  • Time for discussions within and across each field.
  • News from FASM, SSUO/ESUO and ESS.

 

last but not least:

  • Annual meeting of our user organization FASM.
  • Clips from the students posters.
  • Poster session.
  • Poster and PhD Thesis awards.
  • User Meeting banquet.
  • Opportunity to visit some of the beamlines
  • Commercial exhibitors of synchrotron-related equipment will have their stands during the whole length of the meeting.
  • Event focus on outreach to the schools on Tuesday 25th.

Other meetings for MAX IV Users held in 2018

It´s worth mentioning here that MAX IV users, from different research communities, have already had the opportunity to meet and contribute in two specific events which, for project-timeline reasons, were more valuable to organize them early in 2018:

2018, January 8th – 9th: 3rd DanMAX User Meeting

2018, January 23rd: 1st ForMAX User Workshop

Regardless of that we look forward to see these communities again joining the present and future MAX IV users in the 30th MAX IV User Meeting – Coherent Visions
