8 - 10 February, 2016
EPN Campus, Grenoble


The annual event dedicated to the ESRF user community:

learn, discuss and experience the science and

cutting-edge research made with ESRF synchrotron light


In 2015 the ESRF has seen the culmination of Phase I of the Upgrade Programme but also the launch of ESRF-EBS, the project to completely construct and commission a new “Extremely Brilliant Source”. The construction of the first of a new generation of low emittance, high energy synchrotrons, which will boost the brilliance and coherence of the X-rays, is a strategic project for the future of the ESRF and its user community. Exchange among users and with the ESRF staff is very important in these exciting times, and the ESRF User Meeting is an ideal forum for this. The ESRF user community is warmly invited to participate through the submission of abstracts and posters and by meeting together onsite for discussion, interaction and networking.



Monday 8 February 2016


Seven tutorials on a range of different scientific topics will be organised and offered to users on the first day of the event. The tutorials last from several hours up to 1 day, and in most cases the number of participants is limited; those interested are therefore invited to register as soon as possible after registration opens. Each tutorial will be animated by experts, either from the local staff or external experts, and we encourage you to take this opportunity to work closely with these experts and with users of similar interests and requirements.
