ESRF home Users organization



The Plenary meeting will take place on Tuesday Feb. 8 (afternoon) and Wednesday Feb. 9 (morning) in the ESRF main auditorium. The Long-term strategies for the facility will again draw considerable attention, with technical updates, open discussions, and a plenary “hardtalk” session with the ESRF Directors. The scientific programme will also feature topical sessions, with invited talks and reports from the beamlines, and a plenary poster session. The 2005 Keynote speech, the “Young Scientist Award Talk” and a special celebration of 10 years of users' operation will complete the plenary programme.

The Meeting will be followed by two satellite workshops which will explore the new scientific opportunities which may be opened by a future generation of detectors, and the promising emerging applications of synchrotron radiation to art and archeology.

Remember that the registration of 110 Euro covers attendance at both Plenary Meeting and workshops.
